  • Nope -- my 6 year old son still has meltdowns sometimes. Although my son also has ADHD.

  • No.

    Has the Dr. ever let him use it to look at something small...maybe your ear? That might help.

  • I understand that some amount of protesting at dr appts is common until around 5.

  • I still hate going to the dr. I really hate when they look in my ears b/c I hate anything in my ears. I am 27. (:
