Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
Parents of 14u Daughter - Attitude/behavior/not caring
We are new to group and in need of advice. Our daughter has been diagnosed wit ADD/ODD and undying other issues- Her doctor says to early to diagnose her. It’s a battle every night with homework grades, attitude, talking back. She is not scared of my husband and will go toe to toe with me (step mom) and now doesn’t back down to my husband. Her biological mom has some mental illness so we are very concerned that our daughter may have some other issues. Is anyone else experiencing with their teens- 1) no sense of consequence 2) keeps repeating same behavior - not learning from mistakes/actions 3) doesn’t care….. 4) hygiene issues. 5) indifferent attitude at school 5) doesn’t seem to have empathy…
We don’t have insurance that covers mental heatlh anymore so if anyone know of a So Counselor with sliding scale in AV or San Fernando area - please advice- Also camps maybe?
