My 8 year old has ADHD and I want to know when my son gets a tantrum that could last 30 mins and 5 mins later he acts like nothing ever happened. Does a child with ADHD doesn't realize that he just had a terrible tantrum and I almost pull my hair out or do they know how to manipulate and know exactly what they are doing?

If he has ADHD sometimes it means he had to much energy and was probably crawling out of his own skin, he needed to burn some energy. Sorry sounds like your overwhelmed, so am I when my son does the same .

I have been told that kids with adhd have problems with their memory. I have noticed this with my 8 year old.
My son will also throw major tantrums and then later come out of his room and say he is calm and go about his business.
I don't think they are manipulating us (maybe a little) but just that is how their brains are wired. One mood gone and the next sets in and they don't see a problem with acting like nothing happened because they are over it already.
Mom's on the other hand are on pins and needles about to invest in wigs because we are pulling are hair out during the tantrums and scared of when the next one will be.

Not the parent of a child with ADHD but I do live with a child that has it, he's 6. I think alot of it is the fact that they 1 don't remember & 2 they're not 100% sure that what they've done is wrong. Because they know they have something wrong with them they think it's ok to behave like that & no1 can change it, but unfortunately because of this they also know they can get away with it if they chose to play up. For example 1st thing in the morning they do have alot of energy so they will play up & it's expected so we let them do it until their med kick in. But at any stage during the day they can yell at you until they get the treats or games they want & they know after the morning you just had with them that you will cave! It is hard but it wont always be so bad & if it is you'll learn technieques on how to deal with it
