Seeing a psychiatrist

I discussed with my ex that I think our son needs to see a psychiatrist. I think he has ADHD so I want to get him tested. Also he shows a lot of hostility towards his father regarding his cousin. His father doesn't think he should see a psychiatrist I think he should. Should I send him anyways?

    I'm taking my son to the psychiatrist, I've made up my mind and nobody will change it. But can you validate me anyways?

    Not looking for validation at all. I am just sayin' my sons primary care doctor even thinks he would benefit from seeing a counselor.

    I have been thinking and putting a lot of thought in it for awhile. I even got second opinions from other doctors as well.

  • It would be more harmful not to take him and regret it later on. I am speaking from experience.

  • silverthreads-

    Thats what I am thinking. I also got opinions from his primary care doctor and even he thinks he would benefit from seeing one. The only reason why I brought it up to my ex is because he has to sign consent papers.

    I believe so would my sons father would benefit from some counseling. I like how you turn it all on me. It's so very rude.

  • what do you expect?

    you've already stated that "even the doctors think he should see one"

    so what is it you want us to say?
