My 13 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD a year ago. We’ve worked on medications/dosages and thought things were going pretty well this school year. Recently, however, he has been slipping. I’m getting emails from teachers, we’ve had a conference, etc but he doesn’t seem very motivated. Today I got a call from the school about his behavior. I was uncertain about how to handle it because I didn’t know if he’d actually done what he was accused of (the school only had hearsay from kids, no real evidence). Once home my husband and I talked to him and he denied it. We were cautiously optimistic that he was being honest, but then heard from his friend’s parent, who was honest about the situation. He was very defiant about the consequences of his actions, and got into a argument with my husband. We feel really at a loss. Taking things away doesn’t work, we’ve done that time and again. I hate feeling so hopeless about him, but sometimes it just feels so bleak. Has anyone tried a coach with any success?
