My son is 7 and in 1st grade. we held him back in kindergarten. I always refer to him as my challenge(he's never heard me say it). He is a sweet boy and has such a gentle heart. Everything is such a struggle for him. He has so much trouble paying attention in school. At home he bounces off the walls and is argumentive with his brother and sister. Every year at school the teacher mentions getting him tested for add. We held him back so he did kindergarten twice, but he is now falling behind in first grade. I have been dead set against medicating him, but am I doing him a disservice? Would he have a better quality of life if we were able to find some kind of medication that would not make him a zombie or change his personality or help him focus? What would be the best meds? I don't want to slap a label on my son, or blame bad behavior on add.Answer Question
