Would anyone be willing to share with me their stories about their ADHD/Defiant Teen so I know that I am not alone in my pain. I have a 15 year old who has been a handful since she was in my womb. There are too many stories to tell but right now she is going through a stage where she doesn't respect authority. Rules don't apply to her and all the rules at her school are "stupid" and teachers are "out to get her." She makes mistakes but will not acknowledge them because someone else is always the cause. She is irritable, angry, and impulsive. She is embarrassed of us as parents, espcially me as her mom. She doensn't learn from her mistakes and consequences mean nothing to her. She has no concept of time or directions. Everything is about her and she only needs us when has needs that she wants fulfilled. She seems to lack empathy and compassion along with social skills. I am truly mortified and feel like we have done something wrong as parents and I am not sure how to cope anymore. I don't even know if I can expect things to ever get better or if I can ever hope for a decent relationship with my daughter in the future. Your feedback would be SO welcomed.
