Guess I am not so great at this natural thing
I have been told because I plan to medicate my son for ADHD after trying tons of things natural I am not a natural parent. My son is 5, he has had SERIOUS issues progressively getting worse since he turned 4. Now its ruining his education. NO diet, modification, herb has helped, things only get worse. Our plan to to give very mild meds and get him into therapy...as of now therapy will do nothing because he can not calm down enough to comprehend what they are trying to teach him. He told me that he hates going to school because he cant stay calm enough to not get yelled at. He said that he cant make anyone happy because his brain is crazy inside. He KNOWS there something going on that basically make his thoughts speed around and unable to focus. He has severe anxiety now and cries at the drop of a hat. My sweet loving boy is tortured everyday by not being able to please the people he respects. I think if a bit of meds slow things down just enough for him to learn self control techniques and calming techniques then I can take him off the meds...I HATE meds, I dont even like to give antibiotics without trying other things.
This is my boy I was the first to EBF, first to make my own solids, first to babywear....I feel like I am letting him down NOT to help him in any way I can.
Anyone else think mediaction can be ok for ADHD?
