Question
Posted by: Firetygger | 2004/11/26

Hyperactive child

My son is eight years old (just turned 8)..he is very disruptive and cannot sit still for two minutes. He does listen but seems to only hear the last part of what you tell him. Everyone says that Ritelin is the solution...is it? Please help.

Firetygger, it might be the solution if he is really hyperactive. The best would be to have him evaluated by a paediatrician and a paediatric psychiatrist and see what they have to say. Good luck.
