In Reply to: Eight year old boy wuth ADHD posted by Tim on April 19, 2000 at 14:15:25:

Don't be too quick to medicate. It surprised me his teacher would suggest meds. I taught for 12 years and am now learning there are natural alternatives to medications! One of the finest I've seen is OPC-3. You can learn more about it at marketamerica.com. I have access to numerous testimonies from people all over the country I can mail you if you are interested. My email is kp2sue@hotmail.com.

: I have an eight year old son. His school referred me to a psychologist for testing due to behavioral problems, and he has been diagnosed with ADHD and ODD. His grades are A's, but his behavior is a problem in the classroom. His achievement test scores are extremely high (98-99 percentile) and his IQ is 148. At home, he has been sort of a behavioral problem, but he is an only child. My wife is a stay at home mother, and works with him on his assignments and watches his behavior. She and I had a conference with his teacher this morning, and she thinks he should be medicated. The psychologist thinks that medication might be worth a try, and has referred me to a child psychiatrist. Everything seems all right now, but my son says he doesn't want to take medication. I am concerned because we feel it might help him with problems he experiences. I feel sad when I see him working on homework and throw temper tantrums. I feel bad that my wife has to watch him do that every day.

: Does anyone have any advice, or has anyone been in a similar situation such as mine? Please advise us.

: -Tim
