Parents of ADHD Children
Daughter, 6 years old: why am I so frustrated?
My daughter is 6 1/2 and my son is 5. Both have ADHD. My daughter takes 4 mL daily of Quillivant. Even though both have ADHD, my daughter is so much more frustrating for me! She is more hyperactive and cannot play calmly for more than 2 minutes. She is jeopardizing play dates in this way Bc the other girls want to color or play Barbies and my daughter is not interested.
Is anyone in a similar situation? I feel so guilty, and I just want to understand why it’s my daughter who “gets to me” so much. I am a 36 year old married woman.
