I'll try to make this short. We just got custody of my 2 step children ages 5 and 6. We hadn't seen or talked 2 them for 2 years. Their mom lives in another state and had moved alot so we had no address and no phone for them. long story short we have them now and no nothing about them other than what their mom has said (which 1/2 u can't believe) both were diagnosed with adhd. What i really want 2 know is how do you get thru 2 them when they do something wrong. We've tried EVERYTHING. and they don't get it. they continue 2 do the same things over and over again. they get into trouble for one thing over 5 times a day everyday. I no we are all going thru alot and trying to adjust. What can I do 2 help all of us adjust and deal with their condition.
