I have very exciting news for My Little Villagers’ followers!

I will be interviewing Dr. Ann Childress, who is the president of the Center for Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine in Las Vegas, NV, about the common challenges parents experience in getting their child to maintain ADHD symptom control into the evening (and through homework time). Dr. Childress can offer practical insights, tips, and strategies for parents to address this challenge. For more information about Dr. Childress and her amazing work, click here.

Since I appreciate my followers so much, I asked Dr. Childress if it would be okay if my readers asked the questions, so I want you (yes, YOU) to post questions in the comments below that you would like Dr. Childress to answer in the interview. I will choose eight of the questions (I wish I could use them all, but Dr. Childress is a busy woman). I will post Dr. Childress’ answers in a separate post, so make sure you’re subscribed to the blog so you don’t miss it.

Thank you!

    Hi,

    When doing a task with my boy he will most times lose interest very quickly and want to move onto something else. He is only 4yrs old now but I am trying to expand his concentration along with his Occupational Therapist.

    What can I do to help him stay interested in a task/homework exercise instead of having to move to the next one at hand and leaving it unfinished?

    Thanks!

    My son is 10 and is diagnosed with ADHD,ODD and LD as well as Elimination Disorder with bowel and bladder. My question is his Doctor has given us Miralax and I have given it to him daily but he has loose stools the way it is and he will will go in his pants and smear it everywhere. Is this a part of ADHD or is this another issue I need to get a doctor to look more into? He can go all day at school and not have an accident but when he gets home he just acts like he does not care and will use anything and everything to wipe with. How can I break him of this? I have tried a toilet schedule but he will argue he doesn’t need to go. It’s very embarrassing to admit to this and ask for advice but I am tired of cleaning it up.
