  • Forget the ADHD for now and just help him cope with the domestic violence issues. YES, he needs to talk to someone he trusts so ask his teacher, Principal and/or school psychologist to help him with the baby steps of "talking about it".

  • Ask your son's guidance counselor for guidance. Ask for him to be tested as soon as possible and for him to meet with your son to give you some feedback and advice. He may need professional counseling and you may benefit from it too. If you can find a parent support group, contact it now and get the benefit of their experience to guide you.

  • Well my idea to keep kids good boy to play in sport with other children after school. My two nephew both play football team every saturday let them have fun and good mood. They most sweet boys and smart. Never look for anger. if u dont agree than find way to help him rid of anger. He also need father to talk with. Man to man!! giggle ofc he still kids. All kids have anger try act like he boss in family but dont let him be your boss. try help him cheer up in sport or go boys clubs or something he can joy.
