I have a 14 year old boy who is ADHD. Not only is he going through puberty but he's just a jerk to me. He is disrespectful, walks away when I'm talking to him, and is nasty aside from being completely scattered, disorganized, forgetful and did I mention nasty!! He and I just don't see eye to eye - it is a constant battle in my house. I really don't like him and I'm sure he doesn't like me either. Half the time one of us winds up in tears - this is not a good relationship. I find myself avoiding him just to avoid the "attitude". I know kids w/ADHD need positive reinforcement but there is very little I can be positive about with him. Is anyone else experiencing these issues or am I just losing it???
I would appreciate any feedback to help me with this ongoing situation.
