Possibility my son has adhd
I think a very good question to ask yourself is, "what happens after he winds people up and gets a reaction."? Kids who do things for a reaction, will stop doing what they are doing once they get that reaction - be it positive or negative. If a child keeps doing things to cause a reaction, then the possibility must exist that they can't help or control their actions.
If you go through the posts on this forum from other parents, you will see that their children get reactions from all around them. Its one part of the symptoms. Kids with ADHD (more so with young kids) don't have the filters to discern right and wrong. They just do it - and many times are very sorry afterward (at least until they give up on themselves). And then they do it again and again. His inappropriate behavior is extremely typical. Note, there are a few other things that could also cause this behavior. But ADHD is certainly a possibility. And yes, if you read lots of the other posts - misery is a common denominator for all involved. I think the most misery winds up on the child if those around him don't understand what he is going through.
So, listen to your psyc. This is something you all need to figure out for the sake of your son. It may take a little trial and error work. It will certainly take more effort on your part then his (for the time being). Keep researching ADHD. There are good books on the subject. There are also books on how to work with your child if he has ADHD. Keep us posted. Ask questions. Good Luck !!!! Read More At : ...
