I would like to know how you mommas feel about add/ADHD? My son who is 8 seems to have a very high tendency of having it. He's not doing bad in school and has passed kindergarten to third grade so it's not effecting his grades but what I see at home is him struggling when we set down to do his home work he seems to have an attention span of thirty seconds and no more and is distracted over the slightest of everything. Mind you I make sure no TV is on or anything like that to make his focus hard on homework it's just me and him in a quite room..... How soon is to soon to evaluate I don't want to do meds really but am sorta in the air about it

Hi there, give him omega 3 tablets as it helps the kid concentrate and become less hyperactive... My son was very difficult to manage but his doctor recommended omega 3 tablets. Also don't worry as kids who are smart will not sit and study with us for more time which makes us frustrated, it's just the age.. The more we push the kids they will just resist and not do the homework.. Just promise him that you will do something for him like take him to the movie or buy him a toy at the end of the term if he does well in school and his homework... U will see a lot of improvement ... Trust me! I have been there n it wasn't easy but now my son is so much better than before... Don't forget omega 3 it really helped

You get the gummy bears omega 3 the kids love that... It's better than the fish oil tablets as they may puke and won't like the taste... The gummy bears omega 3 is sweetened and like jelly which your son will love... Good luck and let us know the progress

Thank you Tina so very much I will definitely do that. I'll pick up some tablets today while I'm at the store thank you. Rewarding him I think will be a great thing as well :) I'll keep you mommas updated on his progress
