My 7 yr old son is ADHD. Weight is so low that the docs want to stop meds. We are trying to not give him meds on the week-ends hoping he will eat more then. Well, we pretty much have to lock our selves in our house with him, he can not play with anyone and we can not have anyone in the house! He is very aggressive, throws things, hits me and yells out horrible things----wants to kill everybody in site and everything! He does have more interest in eating but the I hate yous and I'm going to kill yous are just horrific!! Please someone help me! How do you decipline my son when he really doesn't know what he is saying and doing? I have tried, time outs, no tv watching, to bed early--- nothing really gets through to him because he really is out there without his meds! God only knows what will happen if he doesn't gain/maintain his weight and they have to take him off the meds all together!! (We have also tried Attend just on the week-ends....doesn't work!) Any help here----PLEASE!!!!!!!
