I have a 6 1/2 yr old daughter. She is the middle of 3 girls, and always seems to run off of a motor...never ever stopping. This week we have gone over her reading homework at least 2 times every evening, and she took her test today on it, and got a D- I don't understand, and I don't want to just put her on meds for the rest of her childhood. I was wondering what everyone thought about the possibility of a food allergy? I have heard of this, but does it really make kids off the wall like my little Cressa is? I have gotten the Conners rating scale from our doctor, but haven't filled it out yet, should I venture down this avenue as well as the allergy road? I'm not sure what to do. Does anyone have any advise for me?
