Something about you and anything else you would like to share:
I'm a single parent and the past few months has been really hard for me. I'm typing this now with tears in my eyes because Christopher is so easily upset and gets angry very quickly. He attacks his brother, hates to be reprimanded, over active all of the time, and is having issues at school. This week was his second appointment at the psychologist and it hurts because I don't know how to help him. His brother goes back and forth with him because he doesn't understand what's going on with him. I look forward to chatting with everyone and gaining some advice and learning techniques to help us.

Something about you and anything else you would like to share: Hi my name is Rochelle and we just found out on Friday that our daughter has ADHD, although in the back of my mind I knew it since she was about 3 or 4. I kept saying something wasn't right, but everyone said I was looking for something to be wrong. I'm a teacher and know what to look for. Although I didn't want it to be true because I see how children with ADHD are treated by their peers. The only reason why I was finally able to get someone to listen was because her kindergarten teacher saw it too and requested we take her to see a developmental pediatrician who diagnosed her on Friday after some tests she took. I happy to know that I am not crazy and that family is starting to believe me.
