I give up! I.GIVE.UP! My daughter is 7 and has been diagnosed with ADHD, she takes medication to help her get through school hours, but I just don't know what to do with her anymore when she is at home. She doesn't listen EVER, I seriously repeat myself for 4 hours and 30 minutes until bed time. She obviously has ODD (Oppositional Defiance Disorder) as well, but I just don't know what to do anymore! And her new thing is telling me to "not yell at her" I yell after I have asked her to do something 999 times and she is still ignoring me.
I came across this post on Facebook and there are hundreds more just like it. Parenting ADHD children is really tough and just when we think we have mastered one aspect and things are trundling along nicely another bombshell hits us.
A second discussion on Facebook has been about whether to medicate after school, on weekends and during the holidays.
