A while back we shared the story of Kid Four, and there was a lot of interest in an extended video about Kid Three (Mr. Low/No Sugar). The story of Kid Three has deep roots in awful behavior and a misdiagnosis of ADHD. He was quite a violent child, and to call him a handful would be quite the understatement. We had considered military school (and still do sometimes), tried all sorts of parenting “tips”, gone through the ADHD diagnosis process, and a lot more.
In the end, it was one radical moment that changed his life (and ours) forever. If this resonates with you, or perhaps you have a friend or family member going thru something similar, be sure to share this with them.
Always remember, however, no two people are the same. If you’re able to find a good doctor to work with, be sure to do that. In our case, Kid Two had a fabulous doctor, yet Kid Three seemed to slip thru the cracks. Medical professionals are trained in a particular way for years on end, and food & nutrition are minimally covered. I say that to say this: you are your child’s best advocate. If you sense that something isn’t right, don’t give up until you find an answer.

This doesn’t mean that food will be the issue in every case. However, it’s not uncommon in today’s modern society to have a diet that’s void of critical vitamins, nutrients, and balance.
