How much more can I take..

My son is diagnosed ADHD.

My son is always correct, he will not discuss things, he thinks he is the cleverest boy around, hes active and plays a lot of sports. In other peoples company he is the perfect child, but spending time with us, he can go from being the perfect boy to the worst possible child!

He is Triplet number 1, Triplet number 3 is ADD!

Help!

You don't mention if your son is on any medication?

Who is the Dr. who diagnosed your son's? Was it a Child Psychiatrist?
Medication is only part of the fix - - parenting classes can help you work more effectively with him, and therapy (coping strategies etc...) will help your son learn life-long skills.

A bit more info. would be helpful.
Thanks,
