kids with adhd

Sherita - posted on 07/13/2015 ( 1 mom has responded )




Is there any moms out there who can help me deal with my daughter who is twelve and have ADHD. She lies, steals, sneak food, talks to boys that are much older than her. It is very frustrating. I'm a newlywed, and it takes a toll on our marriage . she takes concerta once a day, and it seems to help with schoolwork, but nothing else. Any tips?

Some of this (talking to boys older than herself, for example) isn't the ADHD, it's your daughter being a typical kid her age. So is the lying, stealing, and sneaking food. None of these are adhd related. If they were, NO teen or preteen would EVER lie, cheat, or steal...and yet it seems that every kid tries to push that boundary in some ways. For example: My 17 YO tries to lie...and has all his life. Not because he's ADHD, but because he's a kid, and he saw his friend get away with lying all the time.
