Hi Mrs. T.
One of my twins was put on Ritalin when he was about four years old for 'hyperactivity'. They didn't call it ADD back then. He wasn't destructive, but when we were told we couldn't leave him at our church nursery school anymore because he couldn't sit down...raced all around the room...was too distracted to participate in anything...we took him to the doctor because he was going to be in Kindergarten the following year. I did not like how he reacted on it (even more hyper) so I took him off it. Believe it or not, we worked through his 'distraction' issues with a councelor and thanks to a school system that cut him a break, it turned out fine without the drug.
