I think you shouldn't worry too much about him I think it can only get better as he gets older p.s a tip always have the front door locked

Hi Melody, I know it's hard to go through all this my son is ADHD and ODD and he's 8 years old, each day is a constant battle. I think we found a medication that works somewhat, it's Concerta and he needs to take some Clonidine to go to bed. What's the doctor prescribing for you little one ?? I know for my son it took a long time to find the right medication, it's trial and error, but in the meantime it's hard for the whole family. Do you have any parent support groups you can go to in your area ?? I know I'm still trying to find one in my aera I live in Ottawa, On in Canada. What kind of behavior therapy are you using ?? We give him two warnings and the third one is a time out and if he doesn't want to do it I take away something he likes for a day, if he still doesn't want to I add days. He use to have a certificate at the end of the week for good behavior and he could exchange so many certificates for what he would like. But these kids need reinforcement on a daily basis so I'm using the certificates everyday. Let me know how you are doing.
Bye !

My son is 71/2 and was diagnosed at four. I went through that stage and know how you feel. We put hook and eye latches on all doors and windows. I couldn't do anything in the house except watch him constantly because you never know what he was going to do to himself or his baby brother (who is only 20 months younger than he is). Through therapy myself, it got better once I realized that this is what God gave me and he did it for a reason. It's hard everyday because everyday is different, forget it every minute changes. I came to terms that I would have a messy house and things wouldn't get done. As a family we might not be able to do things with other people all the time because you do not want to set your child up for being yelled constantly or for yourself to get frustrated. I was lonely for a while, but I have to say now that he is in second grade, I actually can do things I have always wanted to do. My husband and I can go out for dinner without the babysitter(grandma) calling because someone needs to go to the hospital or something like that. So you might feel like your in a war that will never end, which it won't, it will change everyday, get better for a while, and change again. So hang in there.

find out where your son goes ask him why if your child does not respond try to get him to draw what hes thinking and then ask him things he wonts to talk about ask him what does he wish for him self
