He is rewarded for good behaviors. And there will always be consequences for rules broken.... that is just the way I run my house. My question was more about if it was common place for ADHD people to experience a craving for carbohydrates or sweets? Is there any correlation between meds and cravings? I appreciate everyoneís opinions And next time I will ensure my questions are framed better because I wasnít looking for parenting advice.
hmmm...you did inquire on an ADHD forum. I know I must have missed your clearly noted bullet points.

I'll eat just about anything if I'm hungry and its there. I go through people's refridgerators to see what they have that I never buy so I can eat it.

And, just because I feel so strongly about it: punishing, admonishing and reprimanding a child for eating whatever was easiest and available is downright shameful.
