A child "has" ADHD.

While I've found physical activity to help my son, it does not take the place of medication.

This can even be extended to adults. I have found that running and swimming helps me tremendously, but I still need to take medication.

My son is active and takes hip hop dance even, but it isn't helping. I really don't want to put him on meds though.

No parent wants to give their child medication.

However, not providing treatment often hurts the child much more.

I so agree with this!

When I was diagnosed (as an adult), my husband questioned the need for medication. I also work with children with disabilities. I told my husband and I tell these parents that if the child had a thyroid disorder, seizure disorder, or high blood pressure (I know, a stretch, but stay with me!), that they would likely not question nor hesitate to medicate. ADHD is no different!

I so wish I had been diagnosed as a kid so that I could have taken medication! I could have done some amazing things!
