blessedme asks:

How do I get my 9year old son who has ADHD to make better decisions?

My son has ADHD and he refuses to attend school and he doesn't think things through and it is a challenge for me. I don't like to take him places due to him rolling around in floors and making noises. What can I do help I need suggestions.

What the Expert Says:

Hello and thank you for writing to JustAsk!

There seems to be behaviors that are impacting your sons social-emotional development and placing restrictions on your family time. Without knowing much about your situation, it  is a suggestion that a consultation with his pediatrician and a  behavioral/ school psychologist may be warranted.   This will determine if there are medical or other issues that are hindering his ability to be able to handle the stimulation of public environments.

Also, here may offer some assistance for difficult behavioral issues, too.

Good luck!
