My daughter is 8 and takes focolin and my son is being just today weaned off of Tenex it makes him so angry and he is 10 years old
heres a post i read that i thought was helpful
Being an adult that grew up with ADHD when it was known as "hyperactive pain in the butt", I found that most adults had no idea how to deal with me, so they spent most of their time punishing me. To me, it was incredibly frustrating to be punished for something that I felt wasn't my fault and not under my control, like being punished for having blue eyes. I was constantly being sent to the principal's office, suspended, and even sent from one school to another. Needless to say that this poor treatment never garnered the results they wanted and only lead me to resent both them and authority figures in general.
I finally graduated from college with my bachelor's, and here are a few of the things I felt were essential in that feat:
1. SMARTPHONE. My smartphone is my lifeline. As soon as I see or hear a date/time that I need to be somewhere or doing something, I immediately put it into my phone. When it's time, it yells at me!
2. STAGING. I stage everything I need in places where I need them. For example, if I need to take something with me when I leave the house, I place it next to the door so that I have to practically trip over it on the way out of the house.
3. QUIET TIME. I schedule 1 hour a day of "quiet time", usually in the morning after breakfast. This time of the day all electronic devices are turned off; phone, tv, radio, etc. The room should be as plain as possible and even be without a window if possible. The idea is to have an environment where there is absolutely no stimulus and nothing to do except read, meditate, do homework, etc. Libraries typically have study rooms that are perfectly suited.
4. MINIMALISM. I keep all of my spaces as simple clutter free as possible (room, car, desk, etc). Chaotic environments evoke a chaotic mind.
5. PARTICIPATION. If you are doing something like cooking dinner, ADHD kids LOVE to be helpful and are dying to do stuff for you. Show him the potatoes and ask him if he can give them the "perfect peel". I bet you that he'd love nothing more than to show you how perfectly those potatoes could be peeled.
6. SENSE MODALITIES. Engage all his senses and you will have his undivided attention. Sight, sound, smell, touch, movement; these are all ways to engage every part of him and bring him into any subject he needs to study. One way of doing this is to get a big whiteboard and let him do his homework on it. It's basically a big wall to "think onto". Math and conceptualizing essays now engages sight, imagination, body movement, and encourages lively discussion (sound).
I hope some of this helps.
