It is too funny. Corey acts great there, go figure and we spend most of the time talking about Sadie, my 2 year old. The Ped is convinced she is going to be my worst Seriously, he has no idea what Corey was like at 2 1/2. Sadie is a breeze compared to him. But even so, he thinks we are doing a good job disciplining the older two (well at least I am, he came down hard on DH for being so passive when they were misbehaving) but he says we are much too lax with Sadie. I tend to agree. She has really become a monster in the past few months and we are easy on her because she is our baby, our last baby and we lost the baby before her (stillborn).
But we have graduated to just med appts every 6 months for Corey.
Corey is doing great both on and off meds. Off meds he is a little more crazy but I am amazed he is no where near as bad as he was before we started meds. I think all the positive interactions he has while medicated has helped his self-esteem. We won't be doing a trial off the meds until next summer though. My hope is to have him off the meds by 2nd grade.
If you haven't read 123 Magic, I highly recommend it. It even works with unmedicated ADHD kids. It is really great, really simple to use and the examples in the book will make you feel like your child is an angel (except for Corey's hostage taking a month or so ago, that was new on the DR).
