Every kid is sweet and heartwarming in their own way! ADHD or not... with some guideness he can play with other kids. I something happened in the past, it doesn't mean he needs to live in isolation.
You decide with your partner if you want to have another baby or not, but don't think you cannot try because of your son's ADHD.

That is very sweet that your son wants a sibling. He probably doesn't quite understand it is not an instant friend, and it will be years before that is so.

If you can, get him involved with other children. Whether it be daycare, playground, or going through your library for activity ideas. Your son has ADHD? Ok...that is not a problem, but a shame that the cousins don't want to be around him. That must hurt. Get him as socialized as possible. If he needs therapy, do it so he can learn coping skills a behavior. There is a lot you can do for your son, and indeed he sounds lonely.

Do you and your partner want another child? No matter what the needs of your 6 year old, that is the first question to answer

But that doesn't explain why they don't want their children around yours. ADHD isn't a disease. Clearly he has done something that concerns them.

I am also wondering why they don't want your son around their children.

But your OP is about your son wanting you to have another baby. As I said, it isn't up to him, and I assure you, having another baby will not solve his behavioural issues. It be more liekly to escalate them.

What has happened for your family to not what your son around their children?
It must be something pretty serious.
You really need to tell us everything before we can help.

Oh... I see you had another post. You can disregard my comment on the other one and pretend I wrote it here. :)

Why is your son on medication? I would be concerned if my relations were not wanting my child around because of his behaviour. I'd be concerned about my child's behaviour.......is the medication actually working?

With regard to having a sibling, this will not help his behaviour. Does your son go to school? He needs more exposure to some social settings.

I'm not really sure what you are asking. However, it really isn't your 6 year old's decision. Neither should you base your decision on what he wants.
