Know your pain. Try BrightSpark and Focus Formula. Read up about it on the Feelgood health / natural kids website. Does take a while before it starts to work as is with all natural products, but saw a big difference in my son after 3 weeks. You can order it online or buy directly from their shop in 8 Gabriel Rd, Plumstead

I have a 7 year old son who was diagnosed with ADHD while my then husband and I were going through a divorce. The divorce affecting my son badly and there are a lot of emotional issues which I am battling to address with him. I have tried a psychologist but after a weekly visit (and even two sometimes) for eight months and he still refused to speak to her about anything I stopped taking him. His grade 0 teacher recommended Westrand School where he is now in Grade 1. They specialise in amongst other things learning disorders. He is now suffering from depression (diagnosed by paediatrician) and the ADHD seems to be getting worse. I battle to get him to take ritalin as it tends to break his confidence down even more. I have now started trying Bio-Strath but am pulling my hair out. He is extremely aggressive and does not concentrate for long periods of time. His teacher has suggested that we place him back into main stream school with smaller classes in order to build him up. A number of doctors and teachers have suggested that his problems are more emotional. I tend to agree although I do believe there is a level of ADHD present. How do I address the situation and where do I go from here?
