So classes started yesterday, and the new teacher who seems really nice and patient asked me if I would be willing to stop medication (she must be really against it), and said she is willing to work harder with my daughter. (This is a private school).
I would be willing to stop for a week so the teacher can see a difference, but at the same time I don’t know if this would be beneficial to my daughter. She’s on first grade and she must learn how to read and write by the end of school year.
No parent wants to medicate his/her child, but for most of us, if we got this point it is because we absolutely had to.
I don’t want my daughter to struggle or feel even more different than the other kids.... I don’t know what to do
From what I understand, you can't just stop certain medications... children need to be weened off to avoid side effects and stress to the nervous system. So I would definitely speak with her doctor prior to this trial.
