Wow it has been a while since I've been here. Man things have changed.
Well we go later this month for DS to get his referral to a behavior therapist. He is majorly hyperactive, acts out, and constantly over the top. He can not be around too many people at once or he feeds off of them and just gets wound up tighter. He does not sleep at night. His pedi believes he is ADHD but we both want us to work with a therapist and to get a proper diagnosis. We have begun a schedule to give him a bit more structure and he is doing ok on it. We cut out TV, junk food, no HFCS or red dye. He is doing a bit better, but I feel like I am constantly wrangling a tornado. I do not want him to get hurt or to hurt Rebecca. I really do not want to get meds. I'd rather him learn to control himself and his action. I am at a loss of what to do.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks for helping him slow down and see the world or some techniques that can help him control himself.
