Hi! I am new to this site, but I am really hoping someone here might be able to turn me in the right direction...... I have an 8 year old son that has ADD and maybe ODD, (this is a new term to me and i have not had a chance to discuss it with his MD yet) We put him on Adderal about 8 months ago, it seem ed to help for a little while but recently he has strated acting up again, only worse! He tries to get his 2 little sisters (age 4) in trouble. He doesn't listen to anything my husband or i say at home. He disrubs his class at shcool so bad that he has to go to the office almost daily, and none of the kids in his class want to talk to him because he gets them in trouble too! He even pulled a peice of cat poop out of the litter box and put it in his sisters room (on the floor) and then told me the cat pooped there, just to get the cat in trouble!!! We have tried offering him rewards when he is good, taking things away when he's not, grounding him, making him do extras chores, write apology letters, and yes even a spanking. Nothing seems to have any lasting effect on him! I am so lost.... and now he's going to fail the third grade! I know he can do the work (i've seen it) but he chooses not to! I have an appointment with his MD, we can't get in with a counselor in our area for almost 5 more months (they have 12-13 month waiting lists.) but i was hoping maybe someone here had some advise on how to get through to my boy. Any suggestions would help at this point! Thanks for listening!
