I have a 5 yr old daughter with ADHD. We are trying to figure out punishment ideas for her. Nothing seems to work. I have taken her toys, tv, ipod, ect. away. She doesn't care. Make her stand in a corner, time out, ect. she doesn't care. Spank her.She doesn't care. I'm running out of ideas here. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know!!! Some of the things she does is backtalking, purposly defiant behavior ( tell her not to do something, she will look at you smile and immediatly do it again.), sticking her tongue out, crying when told no ( no she doesn't get her way when she does, so I don't know why she continues to do this,) Very difficult in the morning to get dressed, ready for school and out the door. We follow a routine. We do the same thing daily. She is very hyper, bouncy, running about, yelling, screaming for NO reason at all. Constantly yelling to get your attention, even if you have told her to wait. Running off when we are out in public, running out of my office after her class is out when I've told her to stay there........... And the list goes on and on and on and on and on............. I know no all of it she can control. She is on meds and sees a therapist. Thanks ahead of time for any ideas.
