Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Gifted with ADHD and ODD?
My 13-year old ADHD daughter is intellectually brilliant, her school is great, she’s in lots of advanced classes and making mostly As, she’s on medication, but she is still so DISRUPTIVE IN CERTAIN CLASSES and she is extremely disrespectful to me at home. She especially dislikes a certain teacher and does very deliberate things, like calling him by his first name in response to a “reigning in” comment he made to her. We just had a weekend with multiple incidences of lying and deceitfulness to ignore rules she didn’t like. I already work with psychiatrists and a counselor. I’m thinking about military school but think she’ll just run away. Do I add yet another medication for ODD and/or anxiety or try the military boarding school?
