I have a 12 year old daughter that was DX with ADHD about 6 years ago. I think the thing that I worry about the most right now is her lack of social skills. I see kids her age having parties and inviting friends over, but my Katie is never invited. I watch parents at the gym where she cheers hand out invitations to parties and get togethers, And its so sad not to see my daughter get an invite. But I totally understand why they don't. Katie can be very irritating to other kids, its almost like she is overwhelming them. But then sometimes I will see her sit away from them and not make an effort to try and be friends. How do you teach a child how to be social?? Especially if the kids don't like her. UGHHH Its so hard. But I feel like she is missing out on soo much. She seems to be very selfish, has anybody found that with their kids. I will ask her other kids names and who she was talking to, and she will have no idea. Like she just doesnt care. Has anybody else had issues with social skills???
