My patience is wearing thin! My son is 8 he is on Addrell 1 pill 12 hours. He takes it before school 8:30am by 7pm it is wearing off. This is when he starts homework, there is nothing I can do to get him to do it prior to 7pm. But here we are 9pm and we only got through 1 1/2 page of math, we still have 5 more problems to go plus spelling words and he as to read, not to mention he hadn't taken a bath. He has chewed up 2 pencils and three erasers, we've spent the last 20 mins trying to add 1 quarter, 2 dimes, 4 nickles and 2 pennies and all I get is "I don't get it?" He's in ESE (exception student education)Short of giving him the answers I don't know what to do, I'm at the end of my rope, I am using all my power not to explode, thats why I'm pounding the keys and deep breathing. I've been to ADHD parenting groups and nothing sems to work, he will not work independently, I have to sit next to him and use his fingers and walk him each step of the way. Classes are 28 or more kids to a teacher, he will not be able to get the one on one attention he seeks, he has to learn to do this stuff on his own-HELP!!!!!!!
