Dear Dr. Meg,
I am a mother of 2 wonderful boys, as well as a stepmom. Five years ago my ex-husband left but is still involved in my boys lives. My 10-year-old son is one awesome little boy, but he is hyper. He is always moving and easily distracted. His father has decided that ADHD medication is necessary for our son, but I am opposed to it. My son has been diagnosed with ADHD, but on a scale of 1 to 10 is at about a 3. What are some supplements I can give him to help him and how can I help his teacher at school know how to handle him? I don’t want to see this fixed with a pill. My son has been through a lot and has some emotional issues that I am trying to help him cope with. I believe the hyperactivity is much more than a disorder, I believe it is emotional and counseling should be an option. I am praying God’s will be done in all this and want to do what I can to help Him with my son.
