Hi, I believe my 9 year old son has ADHD, his behaviour is challenging at best and getting worse, he has serious anger issues as well, I just wondered if anyone could tell me the symptoms or behaviour of their children that made them think something was not quite right, I just don't know what to do, many thanks.

The right dr support, I'm sure you would know if their behaviours where irrational.

An emotional reward system gives hints. Think about completion of tasks. If there a very few in his / their life.... This would be a key cue. Short term, With the anger... do your best to see past it to the underlying drivers.... find new ways to offset them that are not visible. It's a long road... and support including professional input are really the clearest way forwards for you both.
