Hi
I wish to know why you say he is ADHD? it is your diagnosis or disgnosed by expert like psychiatrist?
The best institute to teach good maner is HOME.
Regarding the medication part if the medicines are not effective we need to reevaluate the child for his condition.
Knowing the family dynamics like, Nuclear/joint, parents educational, occupational, personality, attitute towards his behaviour by all family members, etc.

A child is prescribed Amphetamines to treat his ADD. How is this medication supposed to be taken? Is this medication prescribed at any time to be only taken while the child is in school? Is it alright for the parent to decide the child only has to take the medication when they are in school and cut them off when the child is not in school? What effect would this practice have on the child?
