Parents of ADHD Children
Adhd preteen and inattentive
I am married with three children. My oldest (12years) was diagnosed with adhd, the inattentive part. I knew there was a problem with her attention years ago but everyone around me said she will grow out of it. But, I’m still waiting!
She use to do well in school but for the last 2 years, her grades started to fall. She is an active member of a local team and does well.
All her teacher love her but agree she has difficulty focusing. She is very chatty and social able in class and it has become a problem.
I love my daughter soooooo much. I want to help her but don’t know what else to do. I’ve tried, behavioral therapy, diet change, punishment, behavior charts, conduct cards, tutoring, siting in her classes, spending quality time more often, etc. any ideas? Trying to avoid medicating her.
