My 9 year old son(with adhd) has started breaking things in my home, kicking and punching walls in wild rages. My boy is not a little boy, I've always been able to hold him till he calmed down until this morning, He was too strong for me to hold. It really worried me -so now what can I do? Any advice???

Hi I also have a 9 year old boy who is destructive. He takes concerta during the day and risperdal at night and he is now less destructive. However sometimes he starts being destructive when he is having some problem I do not know about.l I ask the school if anything is going on or they doing anything different. For instance around Christmas he was really bad the school was having a musical. I finally figured out he did not want to be in the musical. I called the school and told them not to put him in it. The next day his bad behavior stopped. I wish I would have thought of it earlier it would have saved my house. Good Luck I also bribe my son with yu-go-oh cards when he is done with homework he gets a card. I know what your are going through and it is really really hard.

A couple of small suggestions: (1) talk to a doctor who deals specifically with ADHD cases to give suggestions; (2) try as to keep your emotion level out of your voice, a calm tone; (3) create a reward system for no tantrums during the day; (4) discuss with him techniques for calming himself down i.e. counting, deep breathing; (5) positive words for anything good they do that you notice--let them know you notice the good things as well; (6) work with you doctor re: meds--somtimes it takes a little time to get the meds part right, but could be well worth it.

My 9 yo boy is also ADHD and my doctor told me "never let anyone tell you that just because of his ADHD you shouldn't spank when it's appropriate." So when he really won't respond to warnings, he gets his bare butt paddled and sent to the corner or his room, and sometimes grounded to his room.

Look Lisa, My son is 10 and he has had this happen to him to, but have you ever been thinking about having fun with him and make him bond with kids, do that alot and so when he would come home he woundn't have so much wildness in him.
