For the past two years my son has been falling behind in school. We thought maybe we should him back in the second grade this year. We have been looking into several different reasons why he is unable to focus, remember, or learn. He is a sweet boy and is frustrated with his own inabilities. I worry that when you aren't sure what is holding a child back, the Doctors and teachers are quick to diagnose "ADD/ADHD". I am also worried about medicating him everyday, and will he become addicted? I just want the best for him and I want him to be proud of himself. I would move any advice from a parent who is currently going through this or a doctor who really understands this.
