Just turned 13 and has ADHD
I have a dilemma, one that I could certainly use opinions from parents and counselors who have dealt with the already delicate balance of ADHD, mood, medication and hormones.
The grades that my son received for the first quarter, definitely show that something is 'up.' However, what that is, remains to be seen....is his medication no longer working? Is it hormones? Is it both? He has a history of being moody and is definitely in a mood most of the time. It's so hard to separate out normal teen boy behavior and those similar characteristics that tend to show when the medication is no longer effective for focus, impulse control and motivation. These are all key things that show up in the life of a teenage boy, add in ADHD and I am not sure what needs to be done, but I am sure we need to do something....your input is greatly appreciated!
