Perhaps I should be a teacher. Actually I know I am far too impatient for the job. Students do not like when you shove them out of the way grumbling "WTF are you a moron" and type in the right answer. My son JMan has some learning issues. He has Dyslexia and ADHD according to the powers that be. I think in part he has these issues but I also worry that people are giving him excuses to fail. As part of this problem he apparently has trouble telling his left from his right. I actually had this problem when I was a child too. Luckily I cut the fuck out of my right wrist and had a scar to help. The wife was complaining about how he was having problems and I came up with a brilliant idea I was sure would work. I came home and I said "Hit me boy". He gleefully agreed and threw a right hook at me. I then said "Your punching hand is the right". So far it seems to have worked.

adhd and dislexia are quite common. In your case, I'm sure it comes from upbringing.

However, don't let the fuckers feed him any pills.

And you shouldn't have hit you. you should be hitting him. A'la FULL METAL JACKET.

"Get the FUCK off my obstacle!!!"

"Your punching hand is the right." OK, that's genius.

Way better than that stupid "The left hand makes an 'L'" one, since you can make both hands do that shit.

Agree with Riggs - don't let them feed him pills. That's the lazy way to deal with it.

Yeah -- don't let him take any medication if he truly has ADHD. While you are at it, tell him to tough it out if he gets an infection. If he needs surgery, try prayer and positive thinking.

Dyslexia is a learning disability. ADHD is a neurobehavioral disorder. They need to be properly diagnosed and treated as such.
