Meltdowns of 6 year old granddaughter....
I live with my daughter and her 6 yr. old girl that has ADHD. My granddaughter is on Daytrana patches and is fine most of the time but she also has scary meltdowns at home and in public. How do you handle the child and keep people from thinking that she is being abused….. We’ve had individuals call police and report the incidents! How do we get her to settle down and not hurt herself or others? This situation is causing a lot of stress and depression to my daughter due to the fact that she is a single Mom and does not know where to turn for help! Any suggestions??? We have been searching for local support groups for ADHD but have had no luck finding one. HELP!!!
