In Reply to: Any help that anyone can give. posted by Dee on November 07, 1999 at 18:29:54:


: My daughter is 8 years old and was just diagnosed with ADD Inattentive type. She has no other learning disabilities. I have suspected something was wrong since she was in first grade and I was constantly told that she was just immature. We moved to a new school district this year and her teacher pointed out that she might have an attention problem. I noticed it too. For years I noticed it - but the people who were with her everyday failed to give me any help - until now. I am now trying to decide whether or not to medicate her. We just got her first report card and she is seriously below average. I've tried everything at home. I don't know what else to do for her. I know she is a smart girl when she can fully concentrate on the task at hand. If anyone has any input or information or advice, I could really use it.
HI, IM NOT AN EXPERT . I HAVE A SON THAT MY EX-WIFE WONT ALLOW ME TO SEE ALTHOUGH DURING THE TIME SHE DIDNT HAVE A CHOICE I TRIED A FEW THINGS THAT DID WORK . THE FIRST WAS DICIPLINE. AND A LOT OF ATTENTION , CATCHING HIM BEFORE HE COULD DO THE WRONG AND A LOT OF TALKING . WHAT I HAVE SEEN IS WERE TO BUSY THESE DAYS FOR WHAT ALL CHILDREN NEED (US AS PARENTS ) DRUGS KILL THE WALKING . I WATCHED MY OWN SON BECOME SOME ONE ELSE. IF YOUR MARRIED MAKE HABITS OF TOGETHERNESS. IF YOUR SINGLE BECOME (IF YOUR NOT ALREADY) VERY ACTIVE . WEARING A KID OUT WILL ALLOW THE PROPER SLEEP AND THE NEED FOR THE RIGHT FOODS . WATCH ALL SUGAR INTAKE. VEGIES LOTS OF THEM SLOW DOWN ON THE MEATS FIND A WAY OF INTRODUCING FISH ITS BRAIN FOOD. I FOUND A DICIPLINE ACTION IS HOLDING UP MY HAND WITH FINGERS OPEN , EACH FINGER REPRESENTS AN ACTION THAT MY SON COULD NOT DO WHEN HE DID SOMETHING WRONG I WOULD HOLD UP MY HAND AND HAVE HIM TELL ME WITCH DIGIT(FINGER) WAS THE RIGHT ONE TO THE WRONG DOING . IT HELPED HIM LEARN TO NOT ONLY PAY ATTENTION BUT REMEMBER . IT WORKED UNTIL MY EX REALIZED THAT HAYDEN WANTED TO LISTEN TO AND BE WITH ME . SHE RETALIATED BY USING THE COURTS AGAINST MYSELF AND MY SON . LOOK UP RITALIN ON THE WEB . READ AND YOU'LL LEARN THE DANGERS AND THE LIFE LONG EFFECTS.
