  • Why do you think he will lose his temper in school and hurt someone? My son is ADHD and is not violent. If you are that concerened with it, he needs to be in counseling to teach him how to deal with is anger issues before it becomes a problem. I also think that at 5, he is too young to be diagnosised with ADHD. My son wasn't diagnosised until 4th grade and I had to fight with his doctor to do the diagnosis. Get him to a good counselor that deals with kids and work with him or her and with the school.
