Parents of ADHD Teens and Young Adults
We need help
I have posted on here several times with some great responses and feedback. My husband and I are at our wits end. Our 13 year old son with ADHD/ODD cannot go more than 3 days in a row without getting into a fight or getting in trouble at school. 2 weeks ago he got into a fist fight at school and was happy because he thought he broke the kids nose. Yesterday he got kicked out of 2 of his classes, 1 of which he had to be escorted out of class by a police officer. He is on 60 MG Vyvanse, and sees a therapist. We have tried the positive reinforcement, we have tried taking away his privileges. He just doesn’t seem to care. As summer comes closer we are distraught as to what to do with him. We have been told not to leave him home alone because he cannot be trusted. We have no family or friends that can watch him. I was hoping to find an ADHD camp he could attend, but cannot find anything we can afford. We cannot seem to reach our son and feel like we are out of options. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
