Hope all is well.
My 14 year old son has been recently diagnosed with ADHD. I have done extensive research and have I have bought everything that he needs to help him. He has executive functioning problems especially with time management and organization I have bought planners, timers, watches. large boards to put his schedule. I even hired an ADHD coach to help him, made checklists and step by step instructions lists and posted them around the house. All of this to no avail. He does not seem to want to help himself. He does pretty well in school, but leaves assignments for the last minute and goes to bed after midnight and wakes up early to finish. As a result, he is not getting enough sleep and is tired the next day.
I am beyond frustrated. When I try to help / show him how to plan and organize, he either listens and does his own thing anyway or just refuse my help. I am so worried about him and his future.
He is not on prescription meds. He takes AGAPE vitamins, omegas, rhodoliola, and probiotics. My husband is against him taking prescription meds.
Should I just leave him to figure out things on his own? I feel like I have done all that I can and am drained.
