Just Diagnosed With ADHD (Children)
My son has just been diagnosed less than 3 weeks ago. He is 7 and will be turning 8. My husband and are overwhelmed and we don’t know where to turn for help. We have totally lost control over our son and we are so tired of the temper tantrums, yelling, the angry words spoken by our son.
We don’t even know where to begin. Nothing seems to work. Timeouts don’t work, taking privileges away don’t help either. This is all new to us. My husband blames me for our sons behavior and under minds my discipline in front of our son. He and I are not on the same page anymore. Our son knows and sees it so he acts out because he (son) knows that dad will start under minding my efforts. Our home is in total disharmony.
