Hi my name is Chelsie, and my son is 7 years old and he was diagnosed with ADHD over the summer and it’s been a struggle, he is a great kid, but I’m really having a hard time with this. There are so many things to think about. He is on medication right now and it is really helping but I am at war with myself, I didn’t want to put him on medication to began with because I didn’t want to alter him but I also want the best for him and if putting him on meds will help him in school, which it seems to be doing, then of course I will do it. Because we live in Fairbanks, Alaska there are very little resources here to help. I also do not know if I want him to know to much about the fact that he has ADHD because then he might think that something is wrong with then and that is the last thing I want. How do I help him without hurting him more in the long run?
