Rid your house of sweets and junk. That is probably the worst thing to give to a child with ADHD. His brain wants the sugar, it stimulates it.That’s poison anyways. Replace all the junk food with fruit. He will come around. I’m sure your a good parent, if you were not you would not be here. This may be old school, but it works. “This is what we are having for dinner.” change what ever meal time it is. No debate, no discussion. Some parents agree, some do not. Forgot to ask. What is he taking? Stimulants could be the root.
