I will opt out because I feel this is a Health issue as maybe ADHA since his problem is with concentrating,so he will need to see a doctor or you talk to someone here!

I believe it would be in your son's best interest to take him to your family doctor to be tested for ADHD or ADD!

When kids have trouble paying attention even when they are trying and still can't may need a little help or at least a doctor to talk to so you can rule out that nothing is wrong and he is just being stubborn.

I have three kids one ADD and the other two ADHD and I felt as a parent that I was out of my area of expertise so my doctor tested them, one had to be put on meds. but the other two was able to be taught how to control the problem, and after years of problems, we were able to finally find a way to help them!

Please remember to click the green accept button, so the site pays me for my help!

And,"POSITIVE FEEDBACK only takes a moment and is appreciated!
