My nine year old DS was evaluated last year by a developmental pediatrician. Long story short she said he has enough symptoms to be diagnosed ADHD but it doesn't seem to be negatively impacting him enough to diagnose/medicate. I agreed. Fast forward to forth grade and homework makes us all want to cry. He is so inattentive and acts the entire time like he can do nothing. I would rather drive spikes under my nails than do homework with him. If he's motivated, he can do it all alone. He just had no motivation. He often loses papers, forgets work, etc. he goes to a private school. His grades are mostly As with a few Bs. I feel so frustrated. I'm wondering if I should just give in and try medicine to see if it would make life easier for us.
