My son had a test done that confirms that he has A.D.H.D. and P.D.D..
I have been trying for 2 yrs to get help for my child & the father and myself to be able to help our son. Neither of the doctor's would remain unbias, nor did they keep treating my son. They gave up on him, allowed the father to deter them from our son's problems. My son's father is very manipulating, he speaks with that low tone and B.S.'s the doctor's to believing our son is a liar, trouble maker and that he doesn't need medication because he is a momma's boy; our son just needs to be shown that he can't have it his way. These doctor's are listening. What can I do?
How can I stop this from happening? There's so much going on..the anxiety my son is having from his father, the step-mother & step-sister. The father says our son is aggrivating & basically, the step-daughter is pefect. Whatever our son says about his wife is also a lie. HELP!!!

Try a counselor. The problem sounds bigger then just needed medications. The counselor could work with you on the behavior problems as well as recommend a doctor for the medications. And maybe help you with the exes. Good luck.

I would also suggest trying a counselor. Right now, my son is seeing the school counselor once a week and hopefully, he will be seeing a psychologist in a few weeks for play therapy. I learned really quickly that while medication my help, it should NOT be the only source of treatment that an ADHD child has. I recently came upon some great resources. One is www.additudemag.com and the other is www.myadhdconnection.com. These have both helped me tremendously. Good Luck!
