It’s a nightmare, isn’t it?
Watching as your child tries so hard to concentrate, gets frustrated and careens off into another hyperactive tantrum . . . receiving call after call from exhausted and angry teachers . . . feeling that pit of shame and concern in your stomach as you watch grades slip further and further . . . lying awake at night wondering (and with good reason) about the horrible, lasting effects of ADD/ADHD medications . . . feeling guilty . . . feeling like a failure . . . . feeling judged . . .
Mom's that was me, and still is me... My son is now Seven, and my hubby and I had to make a serious decision. We pulled our son out of his school, and now he is in a Credited Virtual Academy program (Wish is a blessing:) I'm not going to sugar coat anything... Having him at home in the Virtual Academy is hard work each and everyday (but his grades have turned around pretty much over night:)... But besides him going to school, everyday in general for us was a struggle... I was that kind of mom, that would refuse to put my son on medication (I was so afraid of the side effects). I was bound determined to get him through this without medication... I turned to the internet and started my research. Long store short, I came across this report: http://lnk.co/FKCM5 what a difference this has made for us...
