What do you think would be the most important thing you could tell a parent who's child was just diagnosed with ADD/ADHD?

Do not feel guilty for putting them on low doses of medication if it is suggested by the psychologist/doctor. I struggled with the guilt for over 6 months and the day after I put Kyle on meds it was like a light-bulb went off in my head - it was so successful I was like "why did I wait so long"?

I agree. I have ADHD and know how much meds have helped.

have patience (sp?) and dont let your judgements on meds effect your child ! I know some people who dont agree with meds and the child suffers for it . Always do whats best for your child .

Pick your battles!! If you battle over every little thing, you are going to be battling all day long. Decide what is important and what really isn't.
