My son is 7, and is ADHD, he would sit and play violent. Well he will play any, but the more violent, the better for him - although I monitor, and don't let him play many of them - his father will when he has him. And my son is the type that picks up on each little detail, and then will talk about it for days, weeks, etc. and that is all he wants to talk about is violence.... weird, I know.
Anyways, I am trying to monitor his video game "time" because I don't think it's healthy for him to sit and stare at a TV screen all day/evening playing those games. I mean seriously, I remember as a kid, I would have rather been outside, playing with toys, or reading a book than sitting inside staring at a TV. Does anyone else have a schedule, or routine as far as this goes? I am wanting to set a schedule of some sort for both my kids (I have a 3 year old daugther also)... I'm thinking when he gets home from school, he does homework, then can play video game until supper is finished (about an hour), after supper he has to find something else to do, play, etc. other than video games....
He gets so upset, and whiney also - not sure if this is part of ADHD, or what. I never thought ADHD was so serious, and so hard to control/deal with until my son was diagnosed with it. Sometimes, I feel like I could walk away and cry because he will argue with EVERYTHING, questions anything I tell him to do, and always back talks if I tell him not to do something, or anything negative. He can't just say "okay", "yes ma'am", etc. Is this just an ADHD thing??
Thanks in advance.

Next question overall
What are you making for Easter dinner? Will you eat at more than one house?
