There has never been a proven scientific test to support the invention of A.D.D. I shall presume you are a frustrated mother trying to come to grips with what you have been misled to believe and give you some suggestions of places to visit where with a little bit of reading you will find the answers to your questions.
I have been researching A.D.D. for 3 months and reiterate what I said initially.Remember the lessons of Suppressed memory syndrome.
Kids need hugs not criticism.
If you read the information available below and remove the chemicals out of your childs diet you should be able to raise a healthy child drug free.
Dont you have any concern that one million children are popping Ritilan or other mind altering drugs.That Ritalin is freely sold in the playgrounds?
Does it not bother you that children who commit suicide and commit school shootings are nearly always on anti-depressants?
It is a totally different high tech world that our children live in and we contribute to their demise by not being aware of the dangers we have created for them.
If you really love your child then I suggest you do as much research as you can.Dont ask me to look after your child.Dont grab a handful of happy pills that shrink your childs brain and stunt their growth to block out the problem.You brought this child into the world so fight tooth and nail for its life.If you are not prepared to spend the time and effort researching the information below then the best advice I can give you is to buy the book in number 5. which contains lots of helpful suggestions from qualified profossionals who care about your childs life and not about money.But read number 6. about diet AS WELL.
The problem about not concentrating in class is as much fault the teachers for making the lessons dull and boring.
Form groups in your area and get on school boards and take a pro-active part in formulating your school policies.
Watch a six year handle a play station like a trained fighter pilot then you will realise why school is boring.Read about how Ritalin actually turns your children into lttle robots and ask yourself DO I REALLY WANT THAT?
Questions and answers and safe alternative products.Read about the effects of the chemicals in todays food and how it effects your children.

Right Mary now its your turn.Make today the first day of the rest of your childs life.And dont forget the hugs.Form a little group in your area and start the journey together because you will need a lot of support.
Good luck and GOD BLESS.
