My 13 yr old daughter has ADHD and is not hyper all the time , she plays with her baby brother alot and he loves her, i wanted to know why she is so moody all the time and, why she argues with me constantly and if i take stuff away from her like her xbox or phone it makes it even worse what should i do?

Because she is 13. Keep up a consistent approach to discipline. Make her boundaries and your expectations very clear, as well as the consequences. This has nothing to do with her ADHD, believe me. She's an adolescent. This is normal. I teach kids this age. If they understand the boundaries and consequences, and they are consistent, they will generally pull themselves up with a gentle reminder. (Just for the record, I've also had kids this age too).
