  1. My son who is 16 almost 17(ADHD) takes Folcalin XR30mgs once every morning. He is still the most disrespectful an will not do anything I ask of him without a fight or something. Do u have any advice u can give me. Another thing we are low class working Parents of Northeast, Louisiana where there’s no help for kids with ADHD here. Have to drive a least a 100miles or more to an ADHD specialist. Thanks in advance.

    1. Have you read Ross Greene’s “The Explosive Child?” His approach works very well for kids with ADHD.

  2. When my grandson’s teacher said he reminded her of her own ADHD son, who is now a successful engineer. That was two years ago, and with medication and behavior modification, he is thriving. That teacher truly changed the course of my grandson’s life. He loves her, and to this day, returns to his old school to visit her. He knows that she loves him, too. When she greets him with tears in her eyes, we also know she loves him.

    1. I am struggling with my son and so glad to hear stories of others identical to how I feel. My son is so smart with the biggest heart but when out of his element and around more than 1 or two others the decisions he makes are unhealthy and dangerous to his social life. Please tell me what medicine works for your child.
