so my 3yo boy wakes up at 6am everyday and goes to bed between 7 & 8pm! in those 13/14 hours he is quite literally bouncing off the walls! (or running into them!) he is a little ball of fire! sometimes its so hard to deal with especially being a single parent! and especially when his dad says well hes not like that with me so it must be your fault! (cheers for that!) anyway with meltdowns naughty words (not swearing, Thank the lord!) and him being so funny i almost cry with laughter.... my friend recommended to me this amazing book called raising your spirited child!! you must read it if you have or know of a child who is spirited! BRILLIANT!

I absoluetly agree! I am afraid I may be pregnant now but im not sure I have missed 3 periods and taken 10 HPTs and one bllod test but all have come back negative, I know the exact date the icident occured and have not had a period since that da so at this point i am confused but im sure my little brother would love a playmate!

Yes he is doing much better now, but unfortunately they had to start him on medications! Although it is wonderful with the medications today becasue he can focus and still be a little boy without being a zombie!

hi thanks for your concern.. when my 3yo was about 2 i took him to hv as i was concerned and they said he was fine but i have researched and sometimes things dont show up untill there a bit older... so i will defo keep my eyes peeled and my options open with regards to ADHD! im hoping its just his age and will 'grow out of it' but we shall see! :-O im shocked your brother was kicked out! thats bad, you'd think they are there to help you and point you in the right directions of things not wash their of him :( how is he now he is older and has been diagnosed? do your parents get any help or guidance? x

Well I have a 7 yo little brother who is ADHD and has been medically diagnosed and he is exactly what you are describing. I am not saying he has this all I am saying is keep an eye on the misbehavior especially before he starts preschool or kindergarten. My little bro was so bad he got kicked out of preschool. I would dicuss it with pediatrics for sure if it becomes too unbearable!
