Hi, I am new to this ADHD thing. I have a 7 year old boy who is very hyper. It seemed normal to me for a boy to be rough and hyper, but it is now kind of disruptive behavior. He does things on impulse sometimes, without thought of consequences. When I am trying to explain to him why it was wrong I have to redirect his attention to me fifty times before he actually knows what I am saying to him. When he is upset he is very out of control with his anger. Yelling, throws things(if I don't intervein), and has been hitting his 2 year old brother hard. His teacher at school says the opposite of him, which has me confused, she says he is respectful and follows all the rules. He does have problems with using time appropriately, and listening to assignments. I have read a little about this and just wondering what you all think.

Could be that he is just tring to get your attension because he is just jealous of his brother. I know with my son the day he could walk at age 1 he could not sit still or listen to any of my commands no matter what I would put him in time out for most of the day by age 3 same routine he would not hold are hands he would take off on me at parks. What he wanted to do he would fight to no end. so I saw the signs so by age 6 i took him to the doctor and sure enough he was . I also have another son 21 months apart and he did not act like my older son he was more relaxed and followed directions. If your son does well in school . I wouldn't think he has adhd. But you could take him to the doctors to see what they say. They are diffent levels of adhd he just might be a low form.

Sorry it took me so long to read your post, I was busy. Anyway, thank you for your reply it does make me feel better. The school thing is what is throwing me off to. He does real weel in school all except what I said. Like on report cards in the behavior section, they grade with S for Satisfactory and N for Needs improvement. Everything like follows rules and being respectful is always an S, but like listening and using time appropriately is marked with an N. Also he has been moved next to the teachers desk for talking to much, but nothing major.

I forgot to say that the running off thing has been a constant problem with him. No matter how long his games, friends, Tv, or whatever seems appropriate, is taken away as soon as he is allowed to play on his own in the back yard, He will take off to the park and has even walked to the store by himself which is across a 4 lane Hwy, I don't know what to do?

I would take him to a doctor that deals with adhd he might be able to help. But the first doctor I took my son wasn't much help so you might want to get a second until you get the help you need.
