      Myson had these symptoms and I also have researched. Try this and if it doesn’t help..it can’t hurt to try : ).
      I got him some omega 3 fatty acid pills at dollar general.
      They are three oils in a pill, borage, flax and fish oil.
      My son changed a few hours after taking the fisrt pill. (I poked a hole on the end with a knife and squeezed the oil in a spoon and added a little honey.

      You can also get a small spoon of peanut butter and hide it in there. I would love to know if you try this and it works.

      I love to help others : )..email me!

      Please help! Child #2

      Two years ago I got remarried. My husband has 3 children and I have
      2. The first time I met Child #2 (husbands son), I was in shock that
      he was 10 years old.

      He acted like he was 5. I thought he probably
      has some learning problems and maybe some mild form of retardation.
      He has 2 brothers ages 5 and 7. The 5 year old was more mature than
      him.
      Now for the background.

      My husband worked a lot when he was with his
      first wife. Why she ever has children I will never know. They were
      left to be raised by the television so she could sleep and be on the
      computer.

      When she left, she left the kids with my husband and he has
      custody. Because he had to work all the time, his mom kept the kids
      for him. His mom had child #2 diagnosed with ADHD and was giving him
      60 mg of Ritalin a day.

      At night, she was giving all of them sleeping
      pills so they would go to sleep fast. When they got sick, she would
      save money by giving them antibiotics that were bought from the feed
      store for cattle.
      When my husband and I got married and they moved in with me, I
      immediately stopped all the pills to let them detox. When school
      started, child #2 was struggling. He barely passed.

      He took the TAKS
      math test 3 times before passing it. Because of his immaturity and
      struggles, I had him repeat 5th grade. In my town, you go to Jr High
      in 6th.

      I knew he wouldn’t make it. Now he is in the 5th grade for
      the second time and is doing worse. He is failing most of his classes
      that is a repeat of what he did last year.
      On top of being very immature, he is also very aggressive.

      He is
      normally sweet until you make him mad. He tries to severly hurt his
      brothers if they do something to make him mad (especially child #1
      from previous post). He doesn’t like for people to touch him.

      If
      someone walks by and bumps him, he will push them accross the room.
      When I try to talk to him about his behavior, he just starts to cry.
      He doesn’t like loud noise. He has an exceptional memory. He can
      repeat scenes from every movie he has ever seen.

      He had his lines
      memorized for the scool play before he ever came home with the paper.
      But ask him what he learned or did in school that day, and he can’t
      tell you. He talks with a funny pitch in his voice and uses exact
      pronunciation of every word. He makes funny sounds all the time.
      I have ask them to test him at school for learning problems and
      maybe special ed., but they say it is a long process to do and
      haven’t even started yet.

      I need to know what kind of doctor I need
      to take him to have him diagnosed. I’ve done research and I think he
      may have aspergers. He doesn’t seem to be doing any better as the
      years pass and seems to be getting worse in school with time.

      I want
      to help him, but am not sure how. Any help would be greatly
      appreciated.
      Thanks,
      kaykay
