Please be nice, I am not trying to offend anyone... Okay, this young boy was visiting us one day and I guess he has ADD. He has all kinds of trouble in school with the teachers and with his mom. He was talking about how hard it was to multiply by 9. So I started showing him the easy way that I learned and before I can get to 9x3 he is chasing the dog! So I tell him if he isn't interested in learning, then I am not interested in teaching him. Then he gets all obsessed with getting me to teach him. Why can't he learn at school? I am just a SAHM, not a teacher. It just seems like a lot of these kids just want or need attention. And maybe self-discipline? It is almost like he uses it as an excuse. I told him I didn't care what he had, and he didn't need to act like that. He tried a couple more times, then stopped. The next day my husband finds out that he stole something from him and sold it to someone else we know for $100. We fixed that and he hasn't been here since. My youngest brother (not the same boy) has ADD pretty bad, but my mother is different to him. She was strict with me. But I have always been pretty mellow and so is my other brother.
