My son is 12, highly ADHD. He is taking Focalin XR and it does help. However, he has recently started stealing items at school. He also got in trouble at school for writing extremely ugly and threatening things to his teacher in his journal at school. Whenever he gets into big trouble, he seems to just keep digging himself in deeper and deeper! He also steals candy at home even though we try to keep all treats locked up. I am at my wits end - my bag of tricks is completely empty. I know it doesn't help to yell at him but by the time I have dealt with him all evening, I am so frustrated that I yell at everyone in the house! Does anyone have any suggestions?

Hi nancyw my seven year old was like that getting into trouble and taking things that doent belong to him and actually I had a cop come by and scared him big time and since then hes scared that if he gets into trouble that the cops are coming to take him to a bad boys home so what ever the cop said worked have you tried couseling for him or talked to the school or even let someone in higher ground scare him into doing better hope I helped if any good luck

My daughter is 12. She has ADHD and ARND (her birthmom drank). She's not in trouble at school. Our struggles are listening, hearing, obeying, doing, remembering...she doesn't talk to me, she asks me everything. Our conversations are questions. I've just started the no-sugar thing. I'm next tackling no- or low-carbs. We have a gluten free shop here. Also, organic vegetables. I'm crying all the time. I also have a 2 year old son and I'm exhausted. I know she's going to completely fight the change in diet. I can't control what she eats outside and I can only work hard on reasoning with her at home...dream on eh? Can you tell I'm Canadian! She resents meds, she resents change, she resents us as parents when we do something different. Life is just ONE BIG FIGHT lately.
