My son's 4 and began school Sept 1st. In the 5 weeks since his teacher has raised lots of issues like him not being still for long, yelling, and acting out a lot. The 2nd time we spoke she told me he has adhd and needs meds. After hearing from me and his father and observing him in the office and their play room my Dr told me he did not meet the criteria for adhd. That taking his personality into account and that he has never been in a setting like this he believes the behaviors due to him not being able to adjust well.
When I informed the teacher of his opinion she told me that i should find another dr, one who'd medicate him. Every time I talk to her about my son's behavior she always brings up meds and the kids she's experienced on meds. His behavior is the exact opposite with another teacher he sees often. He's told me the teacher hates him. Anyone have a similar experience? Any suggestions on how 2 deal with this

A teacher has no right to suggest medication. I'd be in HUGE trouble if I ever suggested MEDS. I am NOT a doctor.

I think maybe you need to get it in writing what your doctor said about him not having ADHD, and taking it to the Principal. You should inform the head office, that she wants to medicate your child for no reason. She doesn't seem to be able to handle kids well, and probably shouldn't have the type of job she has. I also think you should change your son's classroom. It is very possible that he is in fact acting out because this teacher is mean to him.
