A big "thank you" to cheryll and mary.
In answer to a question that Mary posed to me in the e-mail.
I have taken our sone to a counselor here and after 6 months all she could tell me was that he was
borderline ADD and ADHD. That to me tells me that she doesnt want to tell me what her opinion is
she just wants more money. She only sees kids who are ADD/ADHD. I took our oldest son there too, and
was told he was borderline ADD and depressive. We did the fmaily counseling and everything. mostly because
at that time he was getting into trouble. being dissatified with the resluts I got with the oldest boy, after 6 months
with the 7 year old, I quit going to them. The insurance doesnt cover it and I couldnt afford it, so I decided to
go it on my own. If I had caught this with my oldest son sooner and been more insistent, he probably would have
graduated from highschool and not had to spend time in jail. Now as a 20 yr old man he is doing better, but
imagine how well he could have done. I dont want the same things to happen to the youngest one.
We have another boy who will soon be 14 and I do beleive that he has some trouble with the attention thing in school
too although he is not any where near as bad as the 7 yr old. I do beleive that both of them could do well
with some form of vitamin or diet like cheryll mentioned. I will try these things for a few weeks before I decide
if it is working or not. Once again I thank you very much.
