Disciplining a child with ADHD and Anxiety
I am at my wits end with our 8th grade daughter. My husband and I work full time jobs and our daughter gets off school 2 hours before we get home. By the time we get home, her homework should be done but no one is at home to police her actions but our teenage son. Her medication usually wears off by 6pm at the latest so getting her to concentrate on homework and getting things ready for the next day is nearly impossible. We are having a hard time keeping her organized and the work that she does do is never turned in on time. We want to punish her for lack of effort but not sure if our punishment is too extreme. Any suggestions on what is fair punishment?
