8 Year old son

Please give me advice. My 8 year old son are having problems in his classroom, because when he is finished with his work he can''t keep himself busy which leads to keeping other kids out of their work, walking around, talking etc.

I''ve been giving him Patrick Hillfords omegas for a year and a half now and in the beginning it worked for a while.

Someone suggested Solal Krill Oil, is that a better option.

I don''t want to put him on any sort of medication because he doesn''t have learning problems and gets good marks.

Also at home he keeps himself busy and is not very active, like running around not listening etc.

I think he is bored in the classroom, good you please give me your opinion.

You have set out your question very well. I agree with you. Your son does not show any signs of having an ADD or ADHD problem. This is good news. He is probably a very bright boy who finishes his work quickly and then he has to sit around waiting for the other children to catch up.This is usually very boring for bright children. He does not need any supplements. It may be an idea to put him in a school where his ability will be recognised.
