Please only reply if you have a child with add/adhd.
Please no judgment. Thanks. :)
My third grader is currently enrolled in public school. He has severe adhd and is on medicine, he has been on medicine for two years. We noticed he is having negative side effects to the medicine and we feel it's in his best interest to get off the medicine completely and learn coping skills, since we do not want him on relying on medicine to get through the day. The medicine DOES help him, but we're still getting notes home about his talking out of turn or too loudly.
What are your tips to getting through the day of homeschooling successfully? My son becomes frusterated and tearful when he is having trouble focusing or when a subject does not come easily to him.
I am really scared to homeschool because when we did homeschool 2 years ago, he argued over every assignment and it would take him FOREVER to complete a simple worksheet because his mind out easily wander. However I know medicine is no longer a good option for him and he cannot attend b&m school without the medicine. The teachers and staff are already frusterated with him and he is upset with himself because he feels "stupid" for forgetting the rules in the moment. Unmedicated, his life in public school will not be positive.
To add, I will be homeschooling and caring for my two younger children as well. They will be 3 and 2 when we start.
