How do you make a child take his meds when he refuses?


My grandson will not take his meds for ADHD OCD. He is violent without them and flatly refuses to take them at all. When my daughter tries to make him take them he threatens to call the Childrens Aid on her. What can we do to get him to take them?

    Please tell me that ADHD kids outgrow the violent behavior. My grandson bodyslams his baby sis on the couch & is cruel to animals. But, its wierd because he doesn't even know why. He is such an amazing boy but its like he has two personalities

    Drs are saying there is nothing they can do. She has been trying for years to get Dyl into councelling and has been getting no help even yet. He has a lot of stress pent up and he lashes out at his siblings.

    Thank you. I will let my daughter know, maybe she hasn't tried this option yet.
