So my youngest son is 5. He is very smart. He is on the same reading and math level as my 8 year old. I have noticed over the past year he has had trouble staying focused. Hes very hyper at times. Cant sit still for very long. I can tell him something over and over and over and it seems to go in one ear and out the other. When trying to talk to him he looks through you not at you. He struggles to put shoes on the right feet unless they are the strap kind. He doesnt slow down to pay attention with the little stuff. We are still having 2-3 nites a week he wets the bed. When hes given candy or fruit snacks that are multi colored he will seperate them by color everytime. I have a session set up with a counsler to see if this is add, adhd, or something more. I dont want to just turn to meds but I do want to make sure if something is going on, and how to deal with it in a different way. My fiance bavks me on this as well as my family and friends. The problem is his father. My ex-husband. He says im over reacting and this will only make our son feel singled out and make things worse. That there is nothing wrong with him im just over reacting. All I want is whats best for my son, but its tearng me up to have to fight with his father over this. I just dont know what to say to him anymore.
