Hi! I'm relatively new here. I have an adopted 6 year old daughter who was recently diagnosed ADHD. She is also defiant, can be aggressive, has major meltdowns, etc. (which all started recently). My question is about sleep. My daughter slept normally until age 3- at which point she took about 2 hours to fall asleep and was up about 6 times per night. More recently, she goes to sleep in her own bed, and then comes to sleep on our floor sometime in the middle of the night. I'm not sure how much she actually sleeps because we have taught her not to wake us up unless she needs something (otherwise no one would sleep). I know she has trouble falling asleep and wakes up several times each night . We give her 3ml of melatonin each night- not sure if it helps or not. Last night she had a major meltdown. This morning she slept until 8 (very rare, usually up at 6). I think maybe her meltdown was related to being tired. How big a factor is sleep? She is going through a scared phase right now, doesn't like to be alone, afraid of dark, etc. Is there anything I can do to help her?
