i am a divorced mom of two very active children. my son age 8 was diagnosed with adhd. i really was not shocked bec he had all the symptoms plus more. i thank gd that i had sense to go see a doctor with him because the situation was getting out of hand. my son talks so much that its scary. i love him to pieces but when he starts blabbering i feel like screaming.. i dont really blame him bc he cant himself but it brings alot of caos in my home. as i am trying to run off to work he talks every second and follows me aroujnd the house he even knocks down the bathroom door to talk as if the house is burning down. also he is so all over the place its scary. the scariest part is seeing your child struggle to be in control and not know how to help them does it get better?

Hi snow~I know how you feel!! The one place I have to go for "me" time (the bathroom) and everything is an emergency. And our routine for bed is my husband and I have a short chat with each of our children, tell them we love 'em, pray and then kiss and say goodnight again. This is when my son decides he wants to talk about everything and anything that comes to mind. We have talked to him about appropriate/unappropriate times to share what he feels is life threatening at the time. It took awhile and consistancy, but he started to get the idea that if I'm in the bathroom unless someone is hurt or dying it can wait 2 min. It has gotten better, especially by setting aside time for him to talk about whatever he wants. Hope this helps!! Remember even though it's trying at times (o.k. most times), how precious they are!! 8)

I have a similiar situation my husband works out of town alot, hes only home 8 days a month so it's just me and the kids. i have an 8 yr old and a 3yr old . My older son was diagnosised in kindergarden, and I'm sure that my younger son has it as well. It's really tough being the sole caregiver for kids. I know
I'm with you on that one. I think that keeping your son occupied is the key to happiness around your house. Maybe your son needs to do some chores around the house while you are getting ready for work or tell him to tell a teddy bear or toy a story, telll him that the object is really lonely and needs someone to talk to and that way it's not always you he is talking to. Good luck

well my first idea is alright (i think). my son has a journal he can write his thoughts in.(he's 9) it's not private, so i look it over every now and then. other than that, sadly i admit i tune him out about 60% of the time. i do the whole nod and say um-hum when he pauses thing. that's terrible isn't it.
