Hi Moms! I have an almost 7 year old daughter who was diagnosed with ADD this past summer. We are not currently medicating other than Omega 3's and vitamins, and she is doing GREAT in school! My question is, is it normal for an ADD child to have constant meltdowns once she gets home, after keeping it together all day at school? She will come home, have some TV/ relax time and then start homework without any complaints. But as soon as something doesn't go her way, so immediately loses it and is then out of control emotionally the rest of the night! I am trying really hard to not over-react to her meltdowns, but it is really affecting our family, which also includes a little sister with Sensory Issues! Any help would really be appreciated! Thanks ahead of time!
