I have a five year old son that was diagnoised with ADHD. He had problems earlier in life because he was born very premature. I just thought him being so busy was because of all that he been through. We have been having major problems in school and he was started on medication. The medicine hasn't made a huge difference yet but the behavior is almost more than I can bare some days. He doesn't listen to me and I'm always repeating myself. He has now starting to hit when he is mad or upset. We call them melt downs. Does anyone have any advice for a fustrated beat up parent.
