I've recently come to the conclusion that my 10 yo ADD son is very dependant on me for WAY too many things getting done. Basically unless I'm there to "motivate" him he doesn't get much accomplished - getting dressed, cleaning his room, doing his homework, doing his chores - I'm always there "don't forget...." "if you want to......then you must ........" and so forth. I have two kids with ADD/ADHD and I feel DRAINED. I'm not sure if he needs to change meds - he's on Stattera (we tried the stimulants and he develped tics and moody behavior from them). It's taking him 2 hours to do 30 minutes of homework! My 6yo ADHD son is more on top of things than him.

Is this typical for an ADD child? Are there any good books that help with this sort of stuff? - I think I might need a more formal routine/system in place for him that my non-ADD 11 yo daughter. This just occured to me recently I have been doing this for so long it's become second nature to me, and it's a habit that I want to stop.
