Thanks slmkhoo for the links.

His main issues is his attention span and impulsivity, thus getting into troubles easily. You have guessed it right. He is not taking his diagnosis well and refused to cooperate.

Actually, poor attention span and impulsivity is quite normal for a lot of teens. It's just a matter of degree. So it's not necessary to get him to be completely mature and adult, which would be strange at his age, but to curb some of the excesses. Even for a non-ADHD teen, things like spending less time on screens, getting more sleep, keeping to a schedule, being tidier, getting more exercise, having a better relationship with parents etc will help. So you don't have to make it an "ADHD-thing".

Catch him at a good time and get him to read some of the links below? He needs to accept his ADHD and learn to cope. At the same time, he needs to understand that his ADHD has upsides too, if he learns to harness them. Tell him that you love and appreciate him for what he is, and that you are willing to work with him.

Anyone heard of redox signaling ? My friend who has an autistic kid is taking a redox signaling supplement and he is getting better. It helps to renew,repair and rejuvenate the cells.She shared that kids having ADHD or adults having dementia also working well on them.

Have heard feedback that it helps for autistic kids.

As it helps with cell rejuvenation, DD is using the product for her ecezema.
