I am a single mother with for children. My 10 yr old has been diagnosed with adhd, bi-polar and odd. My 3 yr old has epileptic seizures and also has adhd and is in early childhood education. Im sure you can imagine my stress is pretty high and to add to it my 10 yr old still throws temper tantrums and whines about EVERYTHING! Every time she does not get her way or she is asked to do something, anything, such as put her shoes on, brush her teeth, etc, the whining and crying begins. She is currently on Intuniv and vivance. I have not noticed any improvement. She also acts out at school. She has an IEP and they are aware of her behaviors at home as well. At school she shuts down and refuses to do what they tell her to do and even throws things, oh and lets not forget the whining! I feel like i have tried everything, i dont know what to do!!!!! i believe as a result of her behavior my depression is also out of control. Someone please give me some ideas, thank you!
