Parenting ADHD – Facts And Figures The latest report from Consumer Reports on ADHD and parents’ experiences in using drugs makes for some fascinating reading.

They obviously had not tried ADHD homeopathic remedies which have no side effects at all and in many cases are just as effective in keeping kids calm and focused. http
