Parents of children with ADHD often question whether to medicate their child or not. The answer is mixed. Some children could definitely benefit from medication while some children might just need a few tools to see how they could be performing and learn to not rely on the medication. Regardless all parents need to understand that there is a medication that no doctor is prescribing! And that is exercise.
