Girl age 6 with ADHD/ODD boy age 8 with ADHD/OCD. I have spanked, taken away all their toys, kept them from going outside and I have done the time out thing. Spanking they laugh at me, not going outside cause they wont stay in the yard they just destroy this inside, and time outs they scream punch walls stomp the floor slam the doors and I have had to carry them to the time out spot with them kicking a screaming at me the whole time. My children do no respond to any form of punishment or meds for ADHD. My daughter has gone as far as kicking her grandmother, hitting and kicking one of her teachers, hitting me, and last year got kicked off the bus for fighting. I have taken parenting classes and none of that works with them. I have used suggestions from DFACS, teacher and their doctor with no luck at all. doing the gluten free diet is hard because we live in a small town and that stuff is very hard to find and when I do it costs to much to do that. I am at my wits end with it. I spend personal time with each one every day, so does their dad and we spend time with them together as well. I NEED HELP AS WELL!!!!
