Hi, I've never posted much here, but have read a lot. My situation is when I first joined this group I had one AHDH child. Well, I now have 2 ADHD children, with my 11 year old daughter being recently diagnosed, and presently on Concerta. It has been of much help with her academics, which were becoming an increasing problem. I wish I could say the same about my DDs social problems. She has virtually no friends in school, hasn't for much of her school history. We have tried to have parties for her, but with very few attendees. She has never been invited over to any classmate's house or to a party. My current problem involves a class trip which is supposed to take place in April. daughter never brought the papers home in November for parents to send in a down payment. I have asked her over and over again if she wants to go on this trip (it would involve 3 days away from home). She has said yes, but never brings home information about the trip, never discusses it unless I ask. I am not even sure if she can go now because of the down payment not being made, but I have asked if she would like me to contact the school to see what could be done. Very non-commital responses. Talked to husband last night; I said I think I will contact the teacher myself. He said if you want to that's fine, but if it were up to me I'd do nothing. I am not thrilled with the idea of daughter being away from home for 3 days with people who don't even want to spend 2 hours with her (birthday party). Besides, if she had really wanted to go on this trip don't you think you'd have known about it before now? I got to thinking, why am I spending 300 dollars for my daughter to be a social outcast? At least I am not charged for it during regular school days. Has anyone else ever had a similar situation? How did you deal with it? Thanks.
