My son is 9 yrs old and has ADHD. He's on concerta, which
seems to be helping. I read a book by a neuro-pychiatrist
that said tv and video games make it worse for children with
ADD because of the breaks in between (like tv commericals).
It had something to do with jumping back and forth from the
tv program to commercials. I forgot to ask my son's doctor
about this and his next appointment is in Aug. Have any of
you heard about this? I would love to use this as a reason
to cut back on tv when he sleeps at grandma's. LOL, I really
don't need a reason but if I tell her the doctor said, then
his word is gold to her.
