I really do think my son has adhd.... he's not hyper, but he definitely has the inattentiveness and distractability issue... it is so clear to me. We have him on supplements to try to help him, but I want to get him more help, but when i tell this to my husband he gets all defensive and says there's nothing wrong with him. I really think he needs help and so do we! How can I get my husband to understand. I feel like we're punishing him for things he can't control.Answer Question

If he is not hyper but has the inattentiveness and impulse issues then that sounds like ADD. Sometimes, with ADD, it is harder to get people to realize that there is a problem because they are not hyper like an ADHD child. My husband went through this as a child. He was called lazy and not using his full potential by teachers because at the time the label of ADD was very rare. May I ask, how old your child is? Is he is school yet? What does his teacher say about his school work?
