I am one of those moms who never wanted to drug my kid. But I am slowly coming to an impass and I have to explore the possiblity. My daughter has always been a hyper kid, loves to talk, can't stay still and seems to just be constantly in motion. In school last year she started getting in trouble for these things and I have tried every discipline out there. She is a very smart very likeable girl but this year has gone down hill. She has yet to get "green cards" consistantly for more than two days. It seems as though every day she is getting in trouble for talking, not keeping her hands to herself, not following directions and just all out nonstop activity. I am ok if it wasn't every day or if it wasn't disruptive to others. Now she is getting more aggressive with other kids, and lying to cover up her bad behavior. I have tried everything to no avail so now I am reduced to testing for ADHD. Any suggestions?
