I'm not a mom. I'm the dad. Can anyone shed some light on how to deal with our 7 year old daughter with ADHD? We have tried multiple medications, all of which work for the 1st couple weeks and them stop working. The biggest problem we are dealing with right now is bowel issues. She just doesn't seem to care about it at all. She comes across as lazy, but we know it has to have something to do with the ADHD. She goes to the bathroom in her pants far more often than in the toilet. She is in the 2nd grade and has only ever had 4 "accidents" at school. We've tried all kinds of award and discipline systems and nothing has any affect on the problem. Please help.
