Starting Caleb & myself on a Omega 3 Suppliment. He has problems with switching gears from one activity to another. He gets over stimulated & has a hard time calming down. He goes through cycles where he can't sleep (just like his Mom). He gives himself stress tummy aches in the morning before school but once he's there he's fine. My husband has a lot of anxiety problems & I have sleep problems & it looks like we've passed them on. I was reading that Omega 3 can help the brain deal with stress better so here we go. I also play guided meditations for him at night & they seem to help make the transition to bed time. He gets in trouble at school for his behavot when he is overwhelmed, but the same teachers say he is the sweetest most loving boy in the class. I hate to take him in to the doctor for fear they will just label & medicate him. He's only 4. I took him to a family therapist about a year ago & she said she did not beleive he was ADD just a very intense child. He feeds off other emotions so when I get frustrated or angry with him it just amps him higher.
Has anyone else given there kids an omega 3 suppliment?
