We live in the coastal New England area and like most families our lives are very much on the go. I am an R.N. so that means I have to work holidays and everyother weekend as well as some rotating shifts, so my job impacts the kids's lives very much but we work with it. My husband is in the process of starting his own bussiness in the same field he has been employed in for the past 25 years- bringing on a whole other set of challenges, but we are glad he is finally going to work for himself :0) As much as we both have to work we make sure that the boys are the main focus of our lives, time with family ( and the extended family) is very important to us. Living with 3 males with ADD can be a real challenge- sometimes I think that I must have it too :0) but that is probably stress talking LOL. As you all know sometimes it is really hard to keep up and juggle all that we have to do. Somedays I juggle better than others.
Patti the EX part was a good give away, they tend to become "ex"because they just aren't paying attention. Sometimes I think that all males have adhd atleast to some extent. If you think he has adhd then there is a good chance that your son does have adhd. Have him evaluated for it. They can start the process in school and then move on to the pediatrician. Good luck.

glad to be a friend. I am having problems with my 9 year old son's behavior. I really want to have him evaluated. I am convinced that he has adhd. My ex husband says no. But he really doesn't spend enough time with him to know. He's not the brightest lightbulb in the chandelier. That's why he's my EX husband.
