I would like to talk with parents who have made the same decision of not medicating a child. I have a 7 yr old boy who is having all kinds of problems from home to school to the few friends he has left. I have him on the feingold diet which has made a difference but not enough. Please any suggestions of how to treat without meds. HELP!!

i dont have an answer to your question. i am actually seeking help. i have had success with using charts, keeping things organized, curbing video games and t.v. these were things that i've always done because everywhere i read said that all children benefit from them.

i have an 8yr old son who was always an A student and stood above his class in his ability to remember long speeches, play piano and drums with no training, etc. Now that he is in the third grade his teacher his grades are slipping to mostly C's and his teacher is pressing to meet with the school counselor/therapist and after our last meeting revealed that her daughter has adhd. I don't want him to be misdiagnosed. i have noticed that he is having trouble focusing, completing tasks, and feels that he is unable to make friends. i don't know what to do. i've been doing a lot of online research. and i'm wondering why this is just now becoming such an issue with him. does he really have adhd, is he responding to the total lack of contact from his father(he idolized him), is the teacher being affected by her own personal issues (she always comes to tears when speaking of her daughter). i know that pinpointing the cause will help me to help him. i prefer the non medicating approach.

unfortunately, I do not have any answers for you. I am desperately seeking any information that might help my 6 year old daughter. she is flunking first grade, i am loosing my patience and often find myself calling her a baby now. I have a 1 year old and am missing out spending time with him b/c I have to be always on top of my daughter and her classwork. I do not want to put her on drugs am on the verge of trying them. anyone that wants to chat, please contact me at [email protected] I am open to any suggestions. I am at the end of my rope.
