My 14 yr old got in a fistfight with a child who has ADHD, amoung other problems . . I know that this child is having a hard time because I have talked to the Principal .Apparently this child is striking out because he's getting picked on. . 8th grade boys are brutal. These guys are always insulting each other. This child tries to joins in but doesn't understand boundries[yeah, I know I don't get them either]. As mothers,what do parents of ADHD kids want other moms to tell their kids about your child's situation. I know every kid is different but I thought maybe someone could give me some general tips about whether going into the reasons for child's behavior [hitting,biting, etc]. will cause more exclusion. He tends to be avoided by my son and the other kids. I can't ask mom, she's basically withdrawn for the other moms[won't return calls ] Can I help short of telling him to ignore this kid totally? Please help. This is the reason I joined this group. I've told my son not to retaliate next time, but he's not exactly sensitive.thanks.
