My son has extreme ADHD and is currently on Concerta, we have decided to do the K12 program thus year for school since I'm so tired of the consent phone calls from teachers and principles. He is very compulsive and argues about everything. I'm looking for any pointers on discipline.

Do you have any behavioral support at home, such as a behavior specialist or TSS? I would definitely urge you to consider getting this at home if you don't already have it. The TSS can teach new behavioral skills that can both help you and help him get his work done. The BSC can help identify triggers, prevent problems, and set up rewards systems. Don't engage in arguments with your son. Takes 2 to argue. Keep discipline simple and consequences consistent.

I agree with emily on that go and see a behavior doctor and maybe also if its got to do with his med's, can they lower the dosage maybe that might help. good luck
