We have a 7 yr old son who does very well in school, but his attention span is very limited, so as a result he has to constantly be told by the teacher to do his work. Although he does have a short attention span at home while he is doing homework, it does not take him long to do the things he has to do. I know that the doctor and the teacher would both love it if I put him on some drug to get his attention under control in school, to me that is not an option, I have read about too many side affects that show up later in life. As a short time solution I am giving him an antihistime and it seems to be helping some, this is not something that I want to do for long. Does anyone know of a special diet or a vitamin supplement that I could try.
He does sometimes act impulsively but that has not been a real issue as of yet. The attention is the problem at hand and the one I need to address now. I take one day at a time and do the best the can with the situation. The doctor is of no help he wants a quick rememdy of drugs and as i said that is not an option for me. I am sure that this ADD has been around for centuries, but in todays society everyone expects every child to behave a certain way. What a boring world this would be if they all were alike in behavior!
Since I will not be able to check this until tomorrow morning please send any and all responses to the e-mail adress above.
I thank you all so much for taking the time to read this and for answering my question.
