Hi, I am a full time step mom, I believe my son has a attention disorder. I have been his mom since he was 4 and I would do anything for him... However I find myself in a weird place because I'm not his biological parent and I don't get to make medical decisions, as much as I have talked to his father about it.. He doesn't want to get him evaluated and diagnosed. Our son is now 6 and can't focus at school acts out, doesn't listen and is pretty much running wild... He knows better and he has told me he knows it's not ok, but he just can't control it... I don't want to put him on pharmacy drugs, and I'm looking for a natural way to help with his actions. I have changed his diet to whole foods and have cut out sugar completely... Please share your natural ways!

OK, can I just say this? You son does NOT have ADHD - you have never had him diagnosed, so please dispense with the label. You "believe" he has an attention disorder, but that doesn't mean he does, and until you have him diagnosed, you shouldn't go around saying he is ADHD.
