  • good answer to the above poster, but I would add....Is the child currently on any medications? prescriptions or Otc? they can cause reactions in children and some children are more sensitive than others......

  • When we had our son with a counselor, they were trying to work with im more for his impulse control. However, after a while, it didn't show any improvment and she recommended him to a psychiatrist who prescribed him a medication.
