Quote:As for the whole ADHD: food adjustments can really help.  They say some food additives can make it worse.  Sugar and other things do too.  Oddly, caffeine can help.  How that works I have no idea.

Diet regulation was one of the things we implemented. Cutting back on processed food seems to help the boys' focus and overall behavior, and in Circus Boy's case we especially restrict red beverages. I don't know why, but he can drink orange Hi-C or Fanta and be fine. He drinks red Hi-C or Fanta at a picnic, and he'll be going bat-poop crazy for a good 48 hours.

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil

Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads. - Thoreau, Walden
