and just loved observing him in class

Before he was medicated I would cringe when I came in because he was so fidgety and unfocused and the teacher was constantly "reminding" him to sit still, stop touching things or people or just plain be quiet.

What a difference. I was so happy for him (and me). And he is no longer the worse behaved child in the class. In fact I'd say he is probably one of the best behaved. I'm pretty sure the teacher is now an advocate of meds (previously she wasn't the the change is Corey is so dramatic).

And the best news is my son who used to hate going to school and would complain, cry, drag his feet, anything to not go actually says to me "Mom is it Monday yet? I can't wait to go to school. I love school!".

Thank you makers of ritalin!!! I think it has been totally worth it to medicate him to change his attitude about school around. That alone is reason enough for me to keep him on it. I figure all the positive reinforcement will really go a long way when we do try him off meds in a few years. I do want him to learn to control himself by himself but am willing for him to mature emotionally a little first. We work on behaviors at him before and after his med dose since it is only a 6-8 hour dose and he is awake 12-13 hours a day.
