Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Remedies

If you have a child with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, life can be a real struggle. Of course this condition asks for special care and education, and until this disorder is diagnosed you simply don’t know what’s happening. Allthough this condition will need special attention for the rest of your kids life, it can be so that when a child grows up, ADHD can actually be an advantage for a lot of activities. Most of the time, kids with ADHD are very talented. When my brothers were young, they were labeled as bad kids. It wasn’t fair to them, but there wasn’t much to explain many of the things that they did. When they were young, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder was not something that was known. They both had it. There are many children who are labeled with this today who don’t have it, and I think that’s a shame. There is a huge difference between a spirited child and one who made need extra help. I think we have forgotten how to let children be children, and the ones who really do need help are falling through the cracks.

Both of my brothers had bad cases of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The older of the two was out of control for a long time, but we knew he was a good kid. He started to do some very destructive things, and my mother was never quite sure what to do with him. He started the woods behind our house on fire, ran away quite often, and was just all-around annoying. The poor kid couldn’t contain himself, but back then, no one really knew what attention deficit hyperactivity disorder was, or that that there might be a reason for his actions.

My youngest brother was born quite a few years later, and by that time, they were just learning what this condition might be all about. He was in a lot of trouble before the doctor told my mother that he might have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. He chased one child down the street with a shovel, and we were convinced he was going to use it. Though there were many other things that happened, that incident was the one that caused the most concern, and was the one that pushed my mother to take him in for evaluation.

Now that both of my brothers are grown, they don’t struggle with their attention deficit hyperactivity disorder nearly as much as they used to. They are both rather mellow now, and you would never guess that either of them were as they were when they were children. There are many who had that disorder that grow out of it somewhere in their late teens. In the case of my brothers, the damage was already done, no matter when they grew out of it. The stigma of being labeled a ‘bad child’ has not done them any favors. No child should ever be written off for any reason.
