Hi, I feel your frustration. I am not a parent, just aa 30 years old lady with adult adhd. I grew up with aadhd tho back then there was no such thing.

I was a quite but smart kid with anger inside. I was afraid that it would just come out without warnings. I always wished I could do martial arts cuz it let you run, scream, hit and let the anger out properly. My mom did not let me cuz I am a girl and martial arts was not for girls she thought.

I think you can bring him martial arts class and learn how to let things out and how to control the emotions. Hope that it helps.
