I originally signed on so that I could learn firsthand what may be going through my son's head because sometimes he is very un-communicative. Because of this contact, I learned a great deal and became a better parent. My son is more or less happy and thriving thanks in large part to this community. ...

My son had sleep disturbances all through his childhood, and he woke up a lot. He was also fatigued much of the time and that, I believe, contributed to or made worse his inattentativeness.
