Q.

Son 7

Good day doc

I hope you can help me or just point me in the right direction.
My son is 7, the school phoned me to say to me that he stole some of the kids money. When asked in the class and threatening to call the police he confessed. He was sorry and said it would not happen again. I sat down with him and talked to him whey it is wrong and he know that it was wrong. I think he is taking some of the kid’ s toys that they bring to school. Today he took money out of my husband’ s wallet. I don’ t know how to handle this. I don’ t know if this has anything to do with it, my son is ADHD he is on medication for it. Anybody with some advice I would really appreciate it.

Regards
Y

Dear Y,

Behaviours such as these can occur with ADHD as the neurotransmitter responsible for inhibiting inappropriate behaviours is reduced.

As a holistic approach is always best, please speak with your prescribing doctor about this development and the medical professional who is best able to assist with this aspect.

Kind regards,
Delia
