Have you ever wondered if your child might have what people call ADHD? It seems as though everywhere we look, kids are being diagnosed. Many kids seem to be on ADHD meds and I think it can actually be called an epidemic now. This post will help identify the signs, symptoms, and treatments for ADHD. What I found most important is the best and most effective ways to treat it naturally.
My son is really hyper active. He is 8 years old now, and living in an island allows my son the freedom to explore nature, run, play, and get dirty. He really didn’t have that when he was younger. When he was younger I had someone give me some advice that helped me, and me, through the times when he wouldn’t stay still. She said, if you don’t make some changes to help your child handle his hyperactivity better, the school system can force him to get checked out for ADHD and request he be put on meds. She was right; it was amazing advice that completely changed my boy. I had to completely cut out red food dyes, and get my son to bed before 8 during the week. As homeschooling parents, we can work with our children to help them through this diagnosis. Check out this awesome post with everything you need to know about ADHD.
