OT I know but had to ask a honest group of people. My dd went to the doctor and they are looking into her having a learning problems becouse of add. She is going into 1st grade and has trouble with letters still and can not focus at all. I just don't know how to take it all in. When I talk to people about the add they get very upset that I am thinking of putting her on meds, I don't know anyone with children this young with add. But it's hard to see my 6 yr cry becouse the 2 yr old is reading and she can't. Any advice?

Is it her overall behavior or just the difficulty in learning /reading? My daughter transposes letters (normal thru 2nd grade), has trouble focusing, doesn't enjoy reading. I had to change the way we did things. She reads 2x a day for shorter periods of time. I question what she has read after every 1-2 sentences, and give a lot of positive reinforcement. It made a difference! She is doing way better. Your baby may learn differently and that's ok. I would try everything you can before putting her on meds. Research different ways of learning or have her tested for dyslexia. If she is dyslexic, she can learn in different ways and become a successful adult! Don't worry! Just try to find a different way to teach her! Say a prayer and best of luck! Xoxoxo - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1176.1 #139 6:44AM
One last thing, don't let others make you feel bad. You need to make the best decision for your child. And no one knows your child better than you! Xoxo - MomWithAJuiceBoxBuzz  1176.1 #139 6:52AM
I think this is great advice. First try all avenues before meds. Sometimes you have to listen to your instincts ... And don't worry about what others might say or think. Prayers, and Pixiedust your way! :) - JessiBelle22  78.4 #81 7:38AM

I'm sorry you're going through such a difficult time right now. Your daughter is very cute! I wish I knew more about this topic but I don't. I do know that 2 of my kids had trouble focusing and they both needed glasses. I agree. I would try everything else first before meds. Sending you lots of pixie dust! - JetsamsTwin  379.9 #19 7:48AM
Thanks for the advice, we are not going to meds for now my doctor who doesn't even advocate to use Tylenol unless you really really have to, wants to wait till school starts and see her new teacher sees. I have had her eyes checked and cut out foods also. Mia is very smart but she can't seem to remember a thing becouse she won't focus when your talking to her. I was hoping she would grow out of it but seems to be getting worse. I pulled her out of a great school and moved houses to a diffent school to see if she can get different teaching there. We work really hard with to help her stay with the class and it seems it isn't showing. My 2 yr is just very clever and to be fair she loves to learn and "homework" so it's diffent for her and they are not the same person and I never try and make them but it hurts Mia's feelings when she sees Izzy do all these things with such ease and she is only two. Thanks for the ideas - cheekymouse  34.9 #124 10:02AM
Sorry your having a hard time the ultimate decision is yours. I would like you to know both my children have ADHD. Both are on medication. Before putting them in medication I lived at there school. The amount of problem they had in school was distracting to the children made the teachers upset and almost loose my job. I was always going to school for problems. I am want to do what best for children. What kind of parent would I be if I did not. - 5disneylovers  1121.6 #4 10:12AM
The children were not making friends and got kicked of the bus a couple of times. Since they have been on medication and have counseling 1 time every 2 weeks ( more if needed ) they are doing well. They have friends ride the bus Everyone has opinions but they aren't there when things go wrong or kids are mean to them. I will do what is necessary for them to have a normal friend fill childhood. Diet change is great but didn't work for me. Good luck Hope this help. - 5disneylovers  1121.6 #4 10:18AM
