I have a 7 year old son with ADHD. Lately he has been acting out, not in the morning but in the afternoon when he is not medicated. I really dont want to put him on more meds, what can i do?
I'm sure there are some mommies here with kids that have ADHD who can help, but also take a look at our Mom's Expertise section, there may be some information there that could be useful. I know it must be tough when you want to try and minimise the medication he's getting. I hope you can avoid adding more meds.
So sorry you're going through this Shauna. I personally do not have any experience with ADHD, I applaud you for not wanting to further medicate Alex. I encourage you to take notes about his behavior and discuss them closely with his pediatrician at your next appointment. Also, the other ladies had some great advice. There are many women on this site dealing with the same issues you are. Good luck!
I don't have experience in this area. Looks like these other mamas can help you out though! :)
