Possible ADHD

Our son is sometimes anti-social but mostly shy at times, argues at times and it is a real battle to get him to study or remember what to do at times. He gets frustrated at times and even at sports quits when he is losing.

He has a twelve year old sister that will at times aggravate the situation. His grades are very good but my wife is spending many hours with him almost every night. He is almost seven but we feel like we need to get help now.

My wife is an educator and is looking at getting an outside evaluation and possible ADHD medication for a short period. We feel he is frustrated by either ADHD or my have a learning disability.

He is not spoiled and we use the tough love concept. He is disciplined when he needs to be and made accountable for mistakes as well as rewarded for good behavior. Mark
