I'm at my wits end trying to help my daughter make friends properly. She has ADHD and I suspect some other stuff going on. She has a nuerophysche evaluation soon and a psychiatrist appointment next week. I am ready to start some medication.
She behaves younger than her years socially. She follows and stalks other children because she thinks they are playing with her or would if they would stop. They are just trying to get away from her. She's always trying to be the leader and always trying to pick the game. I feel like every girl her age and even a year or two younger is so much more savvy than her. It's painful to do things we used to do as the years go on and this becomes more apparent and her age makes it more inappropriate. I did have her on intuniv for a bit and saw an improvement, but we took her off to try brain training (didn't get much out of it). Any words of wisdom or encouragement. I feel so bad for her and selfishly I feel very isolated too (esp. compared to my days of playdates with my very well liked older child).
