Hi mama's. I'm Missi and I'm mama of 1 definatly, probably 2 (second hasn't been 'tested') girls with ADHD. Hubby and I are ADAMANT that we do NOT want to medicate. However, in my research I've mentioned diet to hubby and he said "diet isn't going to do anything, we just need to help her learn to concentrate" GRRR!!! I'm at a loss and I don't know what to do. I'm trying to find some homeopathic remedies that can help her and want to change her diet.... problem is... she goes to public school (dh refuses to allow me to homeschool ) and their policy for snack time (everyone takes a turn) is no candy, and the snack MUST be store bought and pre-packaged....which is against every diet I've come across for ADHD.

Please help! I don't know where to go from here!

Thank you 3Daughters for my AWESOME siggy!

hey im a lurker here as a child i had ADHD and i taught myself how to concentrate i found i could feel when i was being silly this was around age 13. i think communicating with your children can help alot especially from a young age so they no what is happening because it is confusing for them to. the older they get it should improve depending on the severity of there ADHD. goodluck
