Ok moms I need some help here. My 9yr old step daughter comes to stay with us on the weekends and 1 day during the week and latly she has been having the worst temper tantrums. She does have ADHD and is on Concerta for it she also was on Intuitive but her mom took her off of it. Most of the time she does really well but the last couple of weeks if she doesnt get her way she stomps and yells and cries. Her dad gives her ime to "cool off" before he talks to her and then she blames the other kids and nothing is her fault. She doesn't not get in any kind of trouble or have a punishment for the way she acts so she keeps doing it. We have 4 kids between the 2 of us and 3 have ADHD and none of the other 2 act like this ever. Any suggestions on how to deal with this behavior?

Has her weight changed recently? She may need her meds adjusted. She still needs consequences for her actions. She's entirely too old to be throwing temper tantrums. If she keeps getting away with it, your other children will think they can do it too.
