I am only 24 and have been blessed with 3 kids. The problem is my almost 6 year has signs of adhd only when he is at home, but is a perfect student at school. He runs like crazy at home and will not settle down at all. No time outs work we have been consistant with discipline, but I am at a loss for words in how I can handle my son. On another note my 4 yr old daughter is 3ft 8in tall and seems to have some signs of adhd as well, but she is too young to diagnose. Her doctor is running blood tests on her thyroid and I am scared......... What if something is wrong....... And finally my 16month old son is permanently attached to me. He still sleeps in the bed with me and I cannot seem to get him to take some time away from me...... Please if anyone has any advice i would greatly appreciate it

Wow!! You're a busy mom!! At least you have dr's involved. I don't know much about adhd but basically it's an inability to concentrate on one thing for long, correct? If he's fine in school maybe he's just hyperactive. Some organized sports if you can afford them might help, like soccer. Your daughter sounds like my son. He's 10 now, 5ft 5" and 160Ibs. He's built big and has been from the day he was born. Your youngest will be hard to break from his attachment to you. It's really hard to break the sleeping with you stuff and I could tell you what I did but everyone is so different with different tolerance levels that you may just have to let it run it's course. Watch some episodes of supernanny. She has some really good exercises you can try.
