Since you are a teacher and you have a son with ADHD, I would like your advice, I’m scared to death to put my son on medication but he is having such difficulty in school and it seems like the teachers are just so frustrated that they really don’t care anymore. I see him trying so hard and now frustration is setting in because he is just spinning wheels. My son just started the 6th grade this year but has been struggling since kindergarten. I don’t even know where to start??? I went through a similar situation with my oldest daughter many years ago but her situation is complicated with other diagnosis and ADHD medication never really got to the point of working for her and til this day still no help for her. As a Mother the system is very frustrating and extremely time consuming, I feel like I just gave up trying at some point. I don’t want to get to that point again! Any suggestions?
