OK so today was parent teacher conference with my bonus(step) son's teacher she stated that he does not like to pay attention and fly his pencil like an airplain still, we spoke to her about this once before and hoped we could nip it in the butt with all of us working together, anyway his teacher suggested we get him looked at by his doctor for an attetntion deficate. We mentioned it to his Birth Mom and all she said is "I do not think he needs to be looked at". And that was that! We mentioned to BM that we were taking away computer and video games until we got a positive report back from his teacher for his school actions, got no reply from her on that! Gosh it is so hard to try to help raise a bright boy into a decent man when concequences do not fallow through!

" The issue is an educational one and needs to be evaluated & addressed by educational professionals, not a medical doctor."
Actually, ADHD is a medical diagnosis, so a medical doctor is the only one qualified to make it.
