Re: Need some help with my ADHD Child.

So frustrating for you both. He is surely frustrated by your pushing him to have
better control when his adhd means that control isn't quite in his grasp yet.

My mom was always telling me to control my temper but I didn't know HOW to
do that. For most people, it's part of growing up and seeing how others interact
socially, but that part of my brain doesn't work like other's brains do. I was just
as frustrated as she was. And it was so hard on my self-esteem.

Perhaps an adjustment in meds would help ... if these issues happen more often
after school he may need a booster dose to help him cope for more of his day.
Maybe he needs a dose increase, or a different med would work better for him.
Another thing that is frustrating is figuring out which med at which dose is best.

Good luck to your whole family.
