You have given a really excellent description of your son's symptoms and behaviour.He is definitely blessed with a kind nature and appears to choose the healthy options when offered the choice. He does appear to have symptoms that are suggestive of ADD and does not have a hyperactive behaviour problem.It is important that he be fully examined and tested by a paediatrician who may want to do an EEG test as your son sometimes seems to be a bit 'zoned out'when you are speaking to him. This may be a form of epilepsy known as absence episodes.So it is important to make a diagnosis first. If your son does need Ritalin it will be given in the lowest possible dose and should not have side effects.Give him Omega 3 daily in the meantime.
