My little guy

My 7yo had a fantastic violin lesson this morning. He played his little pieces beautifully and got tons of praise from his teacher. And even better, he was as attentive and polite as I’ve ever seen him. He never once interrupted or plucked his strings while the teacher was talking.

This is not typical for him. We had him evaluated for ADHD last year. The test results were inconclusive, mainly, I think, because his classroom teacher blew off the forms. We didn’t pursue it after that, but now we are thinking about it again. Although he is doing well academically, he doesn’t get along well with other kids and he causes his siblings untold grief because of his impulsivity and general obnoxiousness. I think life is only going to get harder for him. We’ve been doing behavior mod for… years… and nothing changes. The idea of meds kinda scares me, but I also think it can’t hurt to try. So we are filling out the forms all over again, and we’ll see what happens.

  2. It’s totally understandable to be scared of meds but I know you will do what is best for him. Again, glad his violin lesson went well.
