My son possibly had ADHD or ODD. We have never had him tested but he shows signs of both. He is 4 and in Head Start, I was expecting him to be antsy waiting for pictures to be taken. They are SOOO slow there. The kids stand in the hallway with NOTHING to do. Well I had him calm the whole time, he was playing games on my iphone. He was second in line. I though YES, we can do this. When his turn cam up he refused to sit where he was supossed to. He wanted to sit on my lap. He would not even sit with me sitting beside him and out of the frame. He would get mad, refuse, kick and scream. I tried bribing him, he was laughing at the photographer while on my lap but just didn't want to sit for the picture. They let two other kids go ahead of him and even tried the group picture. Still he refused. I just took him and left. It is just so frusterating.Answer Question

4 yr old boys...I am guessing he is just 4, not close to 5? I have two sons 13 months apart. They are 4 and 5. There is a huge difference in the two of them age and behavior wise. My 4 yr old is a stinker. He has no patients to sit for a camera. He wants to do his thing and only his thing. I would wait to slap a label on him just yet. Try working with him...with tasks that require patients and quiet..a puzzle etc. He may out grow this behavior with your help.
