This is NOT good. Not good at ALL. My son had *issues* for a few years. (From ages 3-10) I knew that there was something wrong, but I refused to believe that the behavior was the problem. Instead, I took the mindset that the behavior was a symptom of a problem.

I was right. It took me many doctors, many tests, homeschooling, and (finally) a two-year migraine to pin-point the really cause of his hyperactivity and mild Autism-like symptoms. He's a Celiac. He gets drunk on wheat, oats, rye and barley. We stopped feeding him gluten products and I have a normal, sociable, healthy (except for the diabetes), well-adjusted young man.

I don't know what would've happened to him had I relented to the pressure to put him on behavior modifying medications. I'm so glad that he's mine!
