Parent Puzzler: “Bouncy” Boy

Dr. Meg Meeker

Dr. Meg Meeker

You parents out there with excitable, happy, bouncy children may be able to relate to today’s parent puzzler. Take a look and let me know what you think I recommended to Stephen’s mother…

Stephen is 7 years old and in the second grade. His mother came to me saying that his teacher said he was “bouncy, inattentive and frequently asked to leave class to use the boys’ room.” At home, his mother said that he didn’t want to do his homework (what little he had). She described him as quiet, playful and very active. His older brother was 12, had been diagnosed with ADHD and was on medication.  Stephen’s mother and teacher were concerned that he had ADHD and needed a trial of medication.

What do you think is going on with Stephen?  On Friday, I’ll tell you what I did and what I discovered about Stephen.
