smartyjones Posted May 7, 2015 Report Share Posted May 7, 2015 ds has gotten back to baseline after a difficult fall/winter with Lyme/Strep/Myco - the trio from ######. of course, it was a disastrous school year.(I'm horrified and disgusted - but that's another story) he is now having almost a type of PTSD with school work. he seems to be set off in almost an impulse control way when tasked with doing certain topics -- writing is always a trigger; explaining math is troublesome. he has a hometeacher coming and now that spring is here -- it is painful when she comes after 4pm. he is calm and reasonable before and plans to get it all done. when it's time, he is so frustrated and cannot get over it to just get the work done. after, he's okay. he has then had to do it and gets the connection of the wasted time - so it's not a matter of just getting his way and/or trying to get out of something. incentives make sense when we discuss before hand, but he can not see it through in the moment. he's not wrong -- what 10 year old would want to sit at the kitchen table and do independent worksheets while someone watches you in the afternoon when school is supposed to be out anyway. however, this is our current situation. I was wondering if I may try lithium supplement. any thoughts? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
