Why is my son so well behaved at school, but such a terror at home?!?! He's been diagnosed with ADHD, we tried medication (which didn't help much, and I didn't like the effects it had on him). We've also tried behavioral therapy. He will not listen to me, does naughty things on purpose for a reaction, I truly don't know what to do anymore!! Just don't get how he can hold it together at school so well, but then whenever he's at home, he's so difficult!

If he is acting up at home and not at school, then it isn't likely to be ADHD. Who diagnosed him? If he is well behaved in school but not at home, it is more likely a discipline issue. What boundaries and discipline do you have in place at home. If he is doing naughty things just for a reaction, why are you reacting? Instead of putting ongoing punishment in place, have you tried rewarding his GOOD behaviour?
