Before I became a mom, whenever I heard a child throwing a temper tantrum, I would scoff and think, “When I have kids, I will never let them act like that. She must be a bad mother.” 

I can’t believe how arrogant and inconsiderate I was.. Here’s why… 

4 years ago, when I had Ben, I really thought I was grooming him to be a well behaved kid. But, this year, things started to change, (and I started losing control).

Ben was acting out, refusing to do what I asked, and he couldn’t sit still, (at lunch, at the mall, you name it). Worst of all, I was getting daily calls from his school because he was “disrupting class” and other parents didn’t want to schedule play dates with us because of Ben’s “attitude.” He was completely out of control!

It started getting so bad, I felt as if I had completely failed my son. 

I felt like a failure as a mom.

I would never, ever, EVER purposefully hurt my Ben, but that day, I felt like I just… did.

To make matters worse, even Ben’s teachers and other parents were telling me that I needed to put him on medication. I couldn’t believe it. My Ben?

So, I started obsessively searching anywhere and everywhere for guidance. When I was researching the protocol medications, like Adderall and Ritalin, I was petrified of their terrible side effects. I refused to put Ben on harmful medications. Not to mention, I wasn’t completely convinced that the benefits of these medications outweighed the risks.

I didn’t know what was wrong, or how I was going to fix this, but I knew I had to do something.

So I searched and I searched and eventually, I found Brillia. At first, I was skeptical. After all, there are countless supplements out there with bad reviews… But, people online were absolutely raving about Brillia. I was so intrigued that I had to see the results for myself. 

Brillia is a safe, non-prescription medication without harmful side effects (clinical studies here). It helps to reduce hyperactivity & anxiety. It took a few months, but for the first time, I saw my son’s personality shining bright.  

He started calming down, he listens, he stays seated when asked, and no longer acts out at school (best of all: I don’t get calls in the middle of the day at work). My son is finally back to his playful, sweet self. Even his teachers have noticed the improvement and other parents are (finally) inviting us on play dates thanks to Brillia! 

That’s all I ever wanted. I just want what’s best for Ben.
