I am at a loss for how to discipline my son who has ADHD. He is on meds and supplements and I am making changes to his diet but he is still exhibiting his ADHD symptoms and still getting in trouble at school. I talk and talk to him about his actions. I have tried the whole spectrum from spanking for bad behavior to ignoring his actions. NOTHING has worked. We are finally working with a good counselor and I think good things are ahead, so I am not very strict about his behavior. Most of his problems are just sitting still and following directions, he is not aggressive at school. Should I be tougher at home and risk his self esteem for things that I dont feel he is getting enough help with or just let it slide a little until a firm treatment plan is in line? I would love to know what anybody thinks. I feel so helpless.
