What do you mean by making weapons, making harmless paper guns and things or using the items to harm others. Either case if you are uncomfortable with him using them to make weapons and he does not listen he needs the weapon he made destroyed and thrown out. Perhaps calling children from his class or around his age from your neighbourhood will help. When he is throwing a fit walk away and ignore it(unless he is in danger of hurting himself or others). Also ten year old's especially boys are into scary movies, probably to prove that they are though.

Hi Christina,
It's not too late. He's 10. He can turn around. It's apparent that you love him so much!!! But, be careful to guide him as well. He's displaying a level of disrespect to your guidance. You say no to scary movies and he becomes upset to the point you allow him (I am guessing). If this is true, I can only imagine you losing control of your son as he gets older. Since he is already prone to being alone, he really needs more positive stimulation. This will help with his lack of social skills and/or the desire to socialize with others. I think the meds could be moving him to an emotional imbalance. The same why it affects adults. I know my son will tear up if I fuss at him. Each time I see his eyes water I ask him to come back and I discuss the issue further to ensure he has a clear understanding of why I am disappointed. And, he's clear that it's not about him but possibly his error in judgement. Once he understands the tears dry up. He just turned 11. It works well and he feels sort of empowered.

Agree with the posts. Sensory Processing Disorder can go hand in hand with ADHD. My son has only SPD, but I have learned it is common to go along with many other diagnosis. Look into it. Occupational Therapy has done wonders for my son. The Out of Synch Child is a great book to read. I loaned it out, so I don't remember the author (carol krantz or something).

I think your son needs to speak to a councillor/ physiatrist ! My 10 year old is sensitive to! But a fascination with weapons is not a good thing especially if there made with sharp objects! children
do need to show feeling and be able to work thru frustration but it sounds like your son needs some help to learn how to do this! Talk to his pediatrician or the doctor taking care of your sons ADHD and explain the situation and how you feel he needs some help! Good luck and hope your son is able to get the help he needs
