Hello everyone. My son is 6 and in the first grade. We are currently going through the process of him being tested for ADHD and I feel like his doctor is really stalling, understandably. He is struggling with reading and writing and staying focused. He talks a lot in school and is disruptive. It is a constant battle to get him to do any homework and for me to help him work on anything. If you even mention something that has to do with "school-related" activities he refuses and will not follow any directions.
He has a really hard time staying still and constantly gets frustrated. Lately, he has been so mean and negative. I do my best to stay positive and calm, I try to help him find ways to calm down, etc. I'm really struggling and I feel like I'm failing him.. Any help or tips with helping him learn to read and write would be greatly appreciated.
Also, he is constantly bored and that leads to him acting out. I try EVERYTHING to keep him entertained and nothing lasts longer than 5 minutes. I'm at my wits end here...I want to help him so badly.
