hey ladies, new to the board and have been reading alot of posts. It is so nice to know that I am not the only mom going through major hurdles with a ADD child. I have a 9yr old daughter that is ADD and is on Concerta. Which works great for her. I hope to get to be friends with all of you. I know i will need a shoulder at times to vent, cry and share and on the other hand i am a great listener and a better friend. Thanks for letting me be a part of your group!

Welcome! Our son is also on Concerta. I've found this board a great resource for information and advice.

Hi, and welcome!


I also have a DD with ADHD, and she also takes Concerta. Glad you found us, and hopefully we can help you deal with your DD 's ADHD if you need help.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
