Hello everyone, I am new here and hope that there is some help out there or some advise to get me through this. I have an 11 year old step-daughter that acts out and yells, breaks things, tells me that she hates me , her biological mom has nothing to do with her so I am the only mother figure she has and have been there through everything with and for her. I have her in counciling, she sees 2 councelors. She was even hospitalized due to threatening to hurt herself. I believe she has aspergers and adhd. I have never had a child try my patients like she does. I just feel like I am at my witts end. There are 2 other young children in the house that have to listen to her throw her fits and scream and holler and it just isn't fair to the rest of the family because she will tell you that to make her stop all you have to do is let her out of her room or not punish her. Any advise would be much appreciated. I am sure that I am not the only mom out there going through this but I sure do feel all alone somethimes.
