Hey everyone. My name is Emma. My DH is David and he is active army. About to go through our first deployment together. We have a 2 year old son, Logan. ADD runs in our family for girls. And ADHD runs in the family for boys. My son may only be 2. But everyone we meet always tells us he is like no 2 year old they have ever met before. Sometimes they say he is possesed. We keep him dissaplined and in check its just he has so much energy and always has to be moving. He can never sit still during a movie and the doctor says he shows all the signs and symptoms but they can not make a judgement till he is a little bit older. So here is my question, how can i deal with this without him on medication. Any ideas? Thanks!!

amen on the sugar. like, none. seriously. and keep a 10 foot radius on caffeine, i can't even imagine giving it to my son!! he would be stuck to the ceiling for hours! lol schedules seem to really help. if he plays any video games, make sure to take them away an hour before bed, or nap (this is huge for my guy, but he's older). make a routine out of things, like bedtime, that seems to help.
2 yrs does seem awfully early to diagnose, i think mostly because it's so hard to peg adhd accurately anyway. that said, i know that age wasn't easy for marcus!! good luck hun!! big hugs!
