My daughter is in the fifth grade, 10 years old and she has ADD. I don't want to put her on medicine. I tried the meds before, it seemed like it made her worse and she would keep repeating herself so I stopped. I'm getting more and more stressed out. Her grades continue to slip and I don't know what to do. She continues to lose things, lie and for her to do anything such as chores I have to repeat myself over and over again. My son is 7 and has to do more things than her because she just can't get the task done in a timely manner. She sneaks things and it seems like I'm wasting my time disciplining her because she will keep doing it. I'm screaming in the inside and I need help and suggestions on what to do?
