my 5 year old step daughter is having behavioral issues.
She is smart,, acts like she dumb.. shes knows how to write every letter in the alphabet, and recite them as well... also knows how to write and spell her name. Bu
But when you ask her to, she puts on the dumb act until she gets in trouble for it. She refuses to do her school work, which also gets her in trouble.. shes reverted to soiling her underwear.
We've tried time outs, taking toys, tv,and outside playtime away from her...
and it seems she would rather be punished than correcting her intentional mistake.
We've tried therapy, and medication as well for ADHD..
nothing is helping,, someone please help.. its driving me crazy
