    thank God i found your site,iam a divorced father of 6 year old who’a been “tested” to have adhd,however iwas not aware of this untill 8 mos. after the diagnoses of my son. against my wishes my x-wife has told me see want to keep him on his meds( Vyvanse) untill his doctor has seen him after check up. i beleave he has not found his interest yet in class, and because of the rush to run the instruction “through the mill”. my son looking back before he was on his “meds” seemed to function quit well for a typical 6yr old even at 5 he had a creative personality , i would tell him to “let it
    flow” when he would draw for me and i would ask him to tell me about it, yes he did get up when asked to sit and be still and i would discipline him (time out, pops on the bottom,taking away privledges,etc..) everybody that is in favor of his meds are on meds them selfs! imagine that i think of the old movie “invaision of the body snatchers” the part when the main character is hold up all nite in a doctors offices and the other “zombiefied” townsfolk bust in and tell him “come on be one of us its great you’ll won’t feel a thing, you’ll have no emotions at all” get my drift . well, igotta go iam at the libary here an have no internet at home now, but would love to here from you(email,phone,) but would really love to meet you in person if you are ever down atlanta way please dont hesitate to call. look forward to reading you books on adhd i hope they can help me change my x-wife attitude on my sons “meds” if you have or get any more info please notify me thanks again andy nurnberg, cumming,ga
