I look after my niece who is 4.5 years old. I've had her since she was 10 months old and right from the beginning, she was a handful. She never stopped crying, it was more like a screaming cry. About 7 months ago she was diagnosed with adhd with a combination of fasd. Now her tantrums last for hours, she won't go to bed. It's a constant battle to get her to get into bed at bedtime. Now she's having accidents all day. She's also starting getting mean with my baby, who just turned one. Argh! She's not on any meds because she's on the waiting list to get prescribed something. In the meantime does anyone know of any herbal remedies that I could try with her? Oh ya and she's constantly on the go. I stopped taking her into public settings because of her behavior. I stopped having company over because of her behavior. I'm on the verge of signing her back to Social Services because she's too difficult and hard to handle.
