hi my son has adhd and i am a single mum.i think the thing that aggravates me the most is the lack of support services available.i have no male support for him and trying to find a service to help me with this is near impossible.i have tried sporting groups etc.,but as you know their interest levels fade out after a while and you have to look at other options.also i hate having to go to the specialist every six months just to get told the same old thing.i am just waiting for the day he grows out of it.i hope this helps

i know where you are coming from.my son went through a really bad patch with bad behaviour as socially he did not know how to interact with other children,so he would hit them or throw away their hats etc.after many sessions with the school we came up with a mentor program and he has not been in so much trouble at school this year. i know they are such a handful and certainly harder to look after than a smaller child,but it seems to get a bit easier to handle,as they get older,or we just get better at handling them.if you need to talk any time just message me cheers sue
