Why is it that people are telling me that my 8 year old is too young to be diagnosed with bipolar? Can someone let me know how I can get my son the correct diagnosis for my son?

The very best tool you can have for your life and your son's life is to find a top-notch, board certified Child Psychiatrist.

You need to do a lot of research and ask a thousand questions.

My daughter was diagnosed at age 7 with "mood disorder", which is not an uncommon diagnosis for children who may eventually end up with full-blown bipolar. Often times children develop into other diagnosis as they age.
Proper treatment and medication is what is most important for a young child that is suffering.

Take care, and write back anytime!
