I have 4 year old son that I am sure is ADHD/ADD. Most children learn not to do things as they get into trouble and they don't like that. Well, my son continues to do things he knows he shouldn't be doing. He keeps getting into things that could hurt him. I have tried rewards, a sticker chart, coins and of course the dreaded punishments. Nothing and I mean nothing is getting through. I always talk with him about why he got spanked or put into timeout or whatever. He answers as to why and then says he is sorry. Turn my back and he is doing the same thing again. He goes nonstop all day, getting him to eat is a pain and a half. This is my fourth child and the only one that is like this. Not sure if my advanced age at his birth had anything to do with this or not. I am so frustrated. His father has nothing to do with him (fathers choice) and so it is left to me being a single parent and I am so tired. Tired of the constant battles. Really not wanting to put him on medication but I may not have any option. He can be so sweet when he wants to be. I know that if he were in school, I would be there everyday because of something he did. I have thought about home schooling him but with the way I feel right now I don't think that would be a wise thing to do. Calling his doctor again on Monday about this.
