Hi i wonder if you could help us. I have 5 year old step son who has recently been unofficially diagnosed with ADHD.
He's a lovely little boy who who goes though so few days listening and being caring. Then suddenly he changes like a switch being turned on. He srarts bring aggressive, not listening, unbolting the front door and running away, going though the cupboards, fridge and too top it off he turned onthe hot plates and was woken up too the fire alarm going off. Me and his mother haven't got a clue on what to do anymore. We have tried everything. Any suggestions??
Lack of sleep can really worsen ADHD symptoms. there are also some foods that are not good - see this link --http://www.medhelp.org/add-adhd/slideshows/9-Worst-Foods-for-ADD---Plus-1-That-Can-Help/20
and also some things in the home - http://www.medhelp.org/add-adhd/slideshows/8-ADHD-Culprits-Lurking-in-Your-Home/21
Hope this helps.
