|i have a 2 year old and her daddy has add/adhd and i think my child has it to. she wakes up in the mornimg and dont take a nap and still dont go to bed untill 1am. I think they can but doc. will not say untill they are 5 for some reason ↑|

|Wow. I am disgusted with almost every post I read. How many of you have taken the time to do research on "add/adhd"? Do any of you know that it is basically a made-up "disorder"? The drug companies know there medications turn a huge profit and in turn the doctor who prescribes them gets a reward as well. |
I CANNOT believe so many of you "parents" would even consider giving a 2 year old or child any age for that matter AMPHETAMINES. Because that is what all add/adhd meds are!
I have a 13 mo daughter who has been extremely active and hyper since she was born. I get frustrated too. I lock myself in the bathroom sometimes. But there is no way in hell I would put that kind of poison in her body or think she has a non-existent "disorder". She makes me want to pull my hair out, but she is normal for her age! And every child is different.
Parents need to stop looking for an easy fix for everything. Be a damn parent, for one thing! Discipline, love, and letting your child do things to run off their energy are good things to do. And most kids eventually grow out of this stuff.
I can't wait till 20 yrs from now when the new generation has control of everything. Most will be products of lazy parents, schools and most won't know how to be productive members of society.
ADD/ADHD IS A SCAM. DO RESEARCH. KIDS ARE KIDS, SOME WORSE THAN OTHERS. TAKE THE TIME TO BE A PARENT, STOP BEING LAZY!
And to missy: my daughter has never slept more than 5 hrs at a time. Ya know what? They eventually will, you have to be patient and wait it out. Also, how did she get in the habit of staying up til 1 am? It sounds as if you have her on no schedule or routine which is what kids need!
Every one of you makes me wanna vomit and you should not have the right to call yourselves parents. ↑

|Jamie, I believe your post is in very poor taste. Yes, all children have a wide range of what is "normal." However, everyone on this site is determined to help their child. I do not believe anyone who would come on here would try to find a "quick fix" for their children, only to find a solution to help there children. I want what's best for my child, whatever that may be. Medication or not, down the road, we'll see what happens. But I certainly don't believe this is a "made up" diagnosis. This may be over-diagnosed, but it exists. I come from the belief that everyone's got something, we just work at overcoming our difficulties. Which is what we're on here to do, to help our children since we are there advocates. ↑|

|It looks like my son has it himself. He's pretty smart. He says a few words like milk and elmo and bye. But he says nothing else. He can't sit still when were watching a movie norwhen he's watching a television show like word world. But he's a happy kid. He plays with cars and knows the sounds of cars trucks trains and some animals he also loves to dance. But it worries me because hell be 2 in a few weeks and most of my neices already talked at his age and its scaring me ↑|

girls/nieces develop much faster than boys. they do everything before boys do.
as for his vocab, each child talks at different rates but you should talk to your pedi about it.
my son spoke only 4 words at 23 months and now at 27 he speaks around 75.
each child is diffrent ↑

|im going through the same thing. I dont know what to do anymore, i dont even know if its adhd or something else. my two and a half year old is the devil himself. ever since he was under one hes been different. no one wants him to come to play dates, no one wants to come over here, i can barely have a love life because of it and im only 22. i have two boys and i got rid of their father when my oldest was 14 months old. i thougth he was acting the way he did because of him. he screams, destroys things. i will discipline him for dumping all the food out of the fridge onto the floor and go to the bathroom and he did it again, he physically hurts his little brother and he'll even come up to me and other adults and hit us. no matter if you spank him, put him in time out, whatever, it doesnt work. and he yells at you and cusses at you. i cant handle anymore, its getting to the point where I dont look at him like a son, and that hurts more than anything because i do love him, but its making me not want him. ive went to docs and same thing, hes too young. i need help now! anyone with advice please email me [email protected] ↑|

|yes I definataly believe a two year old can have ADHD. Although my son was not diagonised until he wa five. Doctors may tell you that is just normal two year old behavior that is not always the case. I knew my son who is now 16 was AdHD by the age of three. But I could not get him tested until age five. As a two year old he was very compulsive over active would not follow more then one step directions. I remember how hard it was. I can not tell you whether or not your child has AdHd. Only testting ansd your peditrician can tell you. All I can say is try to be patient and show your child alot of affection and support. It is hard for the child too. ↑|

|I have a 5 yr old son who was recently put on adderal 10 mg a day for a trial basis. How is possible that a Dr. determined that he has adhd on two factors that he went by 1. was a survey that the teacher did online. 2 from what his mom is saying. I find it seriously hard to beleive with out proper evaluations done first how can he determine a 5 year old has it specially if he behaving in school. The things the teacher told me was 1 she has to remind accasionaly to pull his work out 2 she says he needs help with some motor skills. 3 she has to dot his name on papers so he can trace only because his writing scratchy 4 once in a while he shows that he has a hard time concentrating. and once in a while he lays under the chair but listens when told to get back in. now this the only concerns she brought to my attention. Are these signs of having adhd or to me sounds like he just needs some practice and lil more structure. Seems teachers and Dr. prescribe these medications like there vitamins considering if u stone a kid out on these meds when they really dont need it u can take any kid with a small problem and make them perfect by stoning them out on meds. the way i look at there should be alot more testing they should do on specially a 5 year old child to determine if he really has add or adhd. children properly dianosed with it then i could live with that but just from one survey and one parent saying things. I'm divorced and i think the toll of the split parenting thing and a few other factors might a role play as too Oh he has adhd. If he had that correct me if i'm wrong but he wouldn't beable to come home from kindergarten and pull his own home work out and sit quietly and do it with my help of course for what he doing that day. he seems to have no problem concintrating, and he is by far no more active than any other 5 year old i have observed. Just need some feed back to see if i am over reacting or actually just doing the right thing. ↑|

|Hi i also have a two year old son who displays all the symptoms of adhd and it runs in our family, my son is being refferred to a pedeitricion to be diagnosed so it is nonsence that you are being told it is too early to diagnose. ↑|
|Name: Joleen | Date: Nov 6th, 2009 6:39 PM
|It is possible for three year olds to be diagnosed. My four year old and my six year old were both diagnosed at three (my youngest a week before he turned three). They have an extensive test that can be done to determine whether or not the behaviors are age appropriate or ADHD. I would insist that your youngest be tested, especially because because an older sibling has been diagnosed and it runs in the family. Both my sons have it and so does their father and other half-siblings. I kept questioning doctors about behaviors and when my doctor who sees my oldest son for ADHD thought that my youngest son exhibited behaviors that were not in the norm, she had me set up an appointment so that she could do the extensive test. The result was that she diagnosed my youngest with ADHD as well. Contrary to what some doctors have told you, not all two year olds are ADHD. Two year olds are naturally active and some are very active, but there is a line of difference between very active and hyperactive. I would definitely push for testing. I have learned to always question and push for answers when my instincts tell me that something isn't right. Good luck ↑|

|OK, people. 2 and 3 years old do not had ADD/ADHD! In fact, just for the hell of it, I asked my 2 year olds doctor this. He told me exactly, "If I were able to, I would report every parent that asked this question to CPS." |
And I agree. Yes, every parent (well, most) want to help their children. The problem is, not many do it right anymore because of all the add/adhd, medication propaganda constantly shoved down our throats.
Does your child runs around yelling?
Does your child get distracted at school?
Well drug 'em up! Jesus Christ, they're kids!
99% of kids diagnosed with this crap do not have anything wrong with them. They simply need structure, maybe a diet change, taught self control, and be disciplined when needed.
Are there kids with serious problems? Yes. Is giving them high powered, legal speed the answer? NO.
A 2 year old can barely say 20 sentences. How they hell can you possibly think they could have a mental illness???? Unless, they constantly bang their head into the wall, play in fecal matter, try to physically hurt themselves or others, they are more than likely just being kids. And instead of finding ways to dope them up, more parents need to be parents and deal with it.
Stop letting tv and fast food raise your kids. Play with them, help them run off their energy, give them love, structure, and discipline.
I, myself, have been diagnosed with ADD by 8 different doctors since I was 16. I didn't pay attention in school, couldn't stay focused, etc. Why? Because I get bored easy, and most subjects bored the hell out of me!!
BUT: I NEVER acted out in school. Why? Because I knew what would happen when I got home.
Kids don't know that these days, and if they did, I bet that would make a world of difference.
My 2 year old makes me want to crawl into a hole sometimes....but she's 2 and FULL of energy. That's normal! I had her, so I deal with it and take responsibility, and teach her.
I swear, there should be a test for people to have kids. ↑
|Name: Jamie | Date: Nov 24th, 2009 3:27 AM
|And to Donna. Most parents do want to help their children. But from what I've read on here, it seems that most only want to help themselves. |
And to the girls whining about how young they are and how hard it is: shut up!
I'm younger than both of you, single, my daughter is a terror most of the time. I don't complain or try to find ways to drug her up. I had her, so I deal with her.
Maybe you shouldn't have had kids! It sounds like most of you are kids yourselves! ↑

I have a 3 year old who we finally took to a child psychologist. We were out of parenting techniques, and our pediatrician recommended a psychologist to help us out. She does think our son has ADHD at the age of 3, but she does not want to give him an official diagnosis just yet because then he is stuck with it on insurance for life. SHe did however recommend behavioral modification for ADHD kids. I am still researching, and have another meeting with her soon. So I would recommend seing a child psychologist who has experience with ADHD kids. If your two year old is anything like my 3 year old, you are exhausted, frustrated, and need some sort of push in the right direction! ↑
