My seven year old son was diagnosed with ADHD as well as some depression like thing about 2 years ago. He was seeing a counselor at home and at school. Since november or december he hasn't seen anyone, due at first to me stopping it before the baby came and then because his last couselor doesn't have enough space to see him. Met with his teachers today and they suggested meds. They also mentioned that he had been talking about harming himself, which was an issue in the past. They mentioned that his lack of a father figure could also be an issue. I'm not for it nor totally against meds. My worries are that he won't be himself and that he will be dependent upon them forever. I need help figuring out if he should or shouldn't. I spoke to my husband and my sons biological father. Mu husband could care less. His dad I'm not sure about yet. I don't know what to do. I need serious opinions.
To clarify his teachers were saying how meds could help him. I wasn't seeking that info from them, but I don't see anything wrong with them giving me ideas or advice, whether I take it or not is up to me. In my opinion parents of children that take meds is more what I'm looking for because they deal with it everyday.
