ADHD in Girls
Any concrete middle school tips? I'm at wit's end.
My 12 year daughter is failing out of middle school. She attends a charter school, as the public middle schools here are pretty rough. If she continues to fail classes, she will be asked to leave.
The thing is, I can’t seem to help her to care at all. The only sign that she does care is frustration, and as soon as it kicks in, she just gives up. With her, it’s always been as soon as something is at all challenging, uncomfortable, or just not fun for her, she won’t bother. I don’t know how to motivate her. There’s nothing to give or take away that seems to work, and I have ADHD myself, so I’m not the best at coming up with organization ideas or plans to keep her on track. HELP, I’m about to lose it.
