Just wanted to introduced my self.


Re: New here

  • Hi!  Can I ask what sort of things you noticed that made you decide to get him checked out?  And how did you go about getting him diagnosed? 

    My stepson has been displaying some signs that I would classify as not normal 8 year old behavior, he doesn't act out, but when he does homework it's as though his brain is blocking him from figuring out the answers.  He also has been in school a week and had 3 assignments he hadn't turned in, even though they were done.

    We want to get him looked at for ADHD, but we are unsure if his mom will agree to take him, she seems to think all of his behaviors are funny.  We thought about asking the teacher to see if she notices, then tell his mom about it.

    Yes he is :)  I took him to their concert for his birthday last February.  We were 2 rows up from him!  My son loves all types of music, but Bon Jovi is his favorite :)

    My 13 year old loves Bon Jovi!  They were a huge part of my teenage years and now my daughter listens to them.....weird!

    Your son is adorable!
