Jackie I also deal with a son with adhd and mood disorder I understand how u and your daughter feel! School and friends are very difficult for my son! And home can be even harder because this is his safe haven! My son has had so much thrapy that he no longer has it! We have found that a consisted schedule works the best! u know a routine everyday! And very clear rules and what we expect from him so far its ok somedays are better than others! Friends are a whole other issue he really doesn't have any! we are hopeing that him being involved in sports will change that. I try to keep him very busy because if I don't all hell breaks loose! u should know a child with adhd is very hard to keep focused! and when u throw in mood issues its even harder! But stay strong mom thats all we can do! We are there heroes!
