I was talking with my mom who is a sitter for a few friends’ kids. I was telling her how my son who has just turns 3 last month is starting to get more and more of a hyper pain in my butt and really testing me all the time. At first i thought it was kuse my husband and i had another baby. But, I’m not convinced of that now. She told me one of the boys she watches that is just a little older than my boy has ADD and that they were told to give him caffeine like coffee and tea to keep him calm. Now I’m not jumping on the giving my 3 year old coffee though i have caught him drinking from mine and my mom’s cups once or twice. But, we do give him tea in the summer but i don’t know if this is true, has anyone else heard of this?Answer Question

The medication for ADD is a stimulate and for some reason is does seem to calm them. Just remember that little ones don't process caffeine as quickly as adults so keep it in lower dosage.
