Hello you wonderful patient and UNDERSTANDING moms and dads and grandparents (and who ever else...) out there. My name is Stephanie and I have 3 wonderful daughters. The younger two are biologically linked to my husband. Where as the oldest is not. He came into my life when she was a little under 2 years old. She hasn't known anyone else as her father and is more or less unaware that he "isn't." The Bio was a lustful stupid teenage mistake and has since past away. (actually he passed away while I was pregnant with her.) OKAY With all that said... I'm going to end up killing her!!!! AHHHHHHH She is 7 years old, I was told when she was THREE MONTHS OLD! That she was "strong-willed" I laughed. (like the pediatrician could REALLY TELL at 3 months old. ) Baby Dae has been a headache from the get go. She was recently diagnosis'ed with ADHD. We tried Focalin XR for a month and then switched to Daytrana Patches, now at 15 mg. With 0.1 mg of Clonidine at night to help her sleep. This isn't helping. She's so ANGRY and DEFIANT! Her father has decided to let her CRUSH CANS when she's mad. but I think this is the wrong way to handle anger. I have called the MD this morning, because there was such a melt down this morning I seriously almost got in the car and drove away until i ran out of road or gas- witch ever came first. She was an hour late for school. she WOKE UP screaming and yelling and throwing her clothes. I made her lay down until she was calm. ANY advice would be helpful. I don't even know what my questions are. just HELP...(sob sob) HELP! PLEASE!
