My son was diagnosed with adhd 3 yrs ago. He has been on medication for 2 yrs. My son is very defient, Has a temper, disrespectful and refuses to listen to his teachers or pay attention in school. I have tried punishing him, taking away his belongings...nothing works. I do not want to send my child to a bootcamp or military school... couldnt afford to if I wanted to but I need help. I cant take much more!! Does anyone have any suggestions?

Try working out an individualized education plan for him.

Involve your school counselors, principal, teachers, and your son. BE HIS ADVOCATE. You must be willing to participate in conferences regarding your son. YOU are his voice. Instead of making him feel worse about a condition that he can't control, stand up for him and get a plan in place.
