ADHD in Girls
10 year old Daughter: ADHD/Tics/Anger
I have posted on here in the recent past. I am at my wits end as to what I must do. My daughter doesn’t want my help or my husbands help with school work. She gets extremely frustrated if either one of us looks in her take home folder. She yells, screams, and gets very angry. I am only trying to help. We have both explained that we are more concerned by how she is acting then whether she completes her homework or not. She must not yell at us. She has been yelling a lot in other areas of her life as well. She also acted up on a field trip that she told me she wanted me to go on. While riding in one of the school vans, she kept pushing me over so she could have more space without considering I would be on top of the other mom sitting next to me. She has not been showing any regard for other peoples feelings, or where we are at the time of her anger. It seems she doesn’t care at all about what other people think. She still is on 1mg/day of Guanfacine since July 27th. One whole pill in the morning and 1/2 pill at night. She takes a daily multi children’s vitamin as well. Please help! Any suggestions? Losing my mind and growing more gray!
