My 8 year old son has been having trouble in school since he started. He's very smart and was in the GATE program at his old school. The problem is his behavior. I just got a call from his teacher that he wouldn't cooperate with his reading group. (he later told me they were being mean to him because they didn't like an answer he gave) We've talked to the teacher but Im afraid this is going to get worse because he's had problems before, all behavior related. My mom wanted me to get him tested for ADD and I think he might have that but I don't want to treat it with medication. We've tried talking to him, taking away privilages, scolding, yelling, nothing works. Has anyone heard of any kind of treatments that don't involve medication?
