Yes, I too, wish I knew more information about ADD when my son was little so that we could have started treatment for him then.  He was diagnosed when he was 13 and by that time he wasn't interested in counseling, medication, etc.  It has not been easy for any of us.

Thanks Gayle : )  My little guy isn't diagnosed at this point (just turned 3), but there is little doubt that his behavior is NOT typical 3 year old, he has been a big challenge from day 1.  It is nice to know that there are other people out there who get what it is like, and how tough it can be sometimes.  But for all the frustrations, he has a thousand joys to offer, and I wouldn't trade him : ) 

 

I just need ways to deal with him, hahaha!
