Q.

Does Add Vance supplements work?

Well the obvious is that an omega 3 supplement is good for my children but I want to get an honest opinion on results regarding concentration. My Son is turning 5 this year and seems so be lazy with regards to doing additional work on counting , shapes practising letters and colouring neatly, he gets easily distracted and tries to get out of doing activities no matter how fun I try to make them, it is easier to get his brother who is turning three to do the same type of things. So I have just started him on Add Vance, does it really have good results with helping children settle down and do a task.

Dear Des,

AddVance will have differing effects on children, it is therefore impossible to state whether or not it will work for your little one and/or to what degree it will help.

Determining whether his reluctance to do additional work is a true difficulty concentrating or due to laziness, will be a crucial step. Sometimes children avoid tasks simply they are difficult for the child. Having his eyes and ears tested will rule out any difficulty there.

If you are working with your 3yr old as well, some healthy competition may work wonders: if the older one sees his little brother is getting special attention and maybe a sticker for doing good work, he is likely to want some of this too and try to get involved without you trying.

Good luck,
Delia
