Need some help with my daughter :(

I have went to doctors before we left El paso, Texas, and he diagnosed her with ADD but my husband and i do not want her to be on medication. We dont believe in that part. So i ordered the Synaptol today and when i receive it will give it a few weeks to see if it takes effect. She has a rough time reading and that is hindering her spellling at school. I have come to my wits end. I want to do more to help her but sometimes i am just stuck. I dont want her to be on medication because of all the side effects. She is a healthy 8 yrs old and i want her to stay that way. If there is ways i change by cooking her different food that help stimulate the mind or other things please feel free to write. I like all the advice i can get while my husband is deployed to Afghanistan. Thank you for reading this.

ADHD or just being kids?

I read this article today about how some kids are being misdiagnosed as ADHD and it really hit home for me. It was mentioned in a report that a possible assesment would be done for my child when he turns 4 years old and I was really thrown back about that. First of all, he is the youngest child in my family and let's not forget that he is 3 YEARS OLD, but it was noticed that he had some difficulty sitting still for too long and he was running around looking at all the cool toys and that automatically says to them "Possible ADHD"?? This article really gave me something to think about and something to watch for.  Kids Might Get Slapped With ADHD Label for Just Being Kids by Tom Henderson (Subscribe to Tom Henderson's posts) http://www.parentdish.com/2010/08/18/kids-might-get-slapped-with-adhd-label-for-just-being-kids/

What's Something Special You Loved As a Kid?

Ultimately, I think most of us enter adulthood with only "snapshots" of our days as children - eating a pecan spinwheel driving down the road with my dad, playing dress up in the attic with my mom's discarded clothing.... It really is the little things that count! A few examples: I have always loved nature - I had a favorite tree on my elementary school playground, a willow tree I would sit underneath and make crowns from it's branches. It's far from the most impressive tree or most scenic place, but it's still one of my favorite spots in the whole world. I would also make "grasshopper houses" by tying bunches of long grass on the hills at the tops, then hollowing them out and I would something creates a soft bed or even a little pebble pathway to them. I would rescue grasshopper from the boys that would try to smash them or bury them in the gravel. My comfort food to this day is plain noodles with butter, garlic salt and parmsean cheese - something my babysitter would make for us kids. My favorite lunch - and not a terribly healthy one so we didn't get it often - was plain fryed egg roll wraps. Now, I am happy to say I'm passing these things on to my own daughter. :) What special things do YOU remember loving as a kid? Could be a special treat, a tradition, a toy, an activity or hobby, a place.... Could be something that still exists or something you wish still did. Have you shared them with YOUR children?
