Hi All, I'm just wondering what to do next and am at the end of my tether. I have an 11 yr old daughter who suffers with ADHD and anxiety disorder who hits me. She's on medications for it and depression. It really can be over anything, usually when I do or don't do something that upsets her like taking away her computer if she has been on it too long. It'll start with pushing then the next thing I know she has a baseball bat and is beating the **** out of me. She hits me and swears at me until I get to the point where I lose my temper and have hit her back in the past.. She'll also throw things at me and try to break my stuff. Just anything that she thinks will get to me. For instance, a few weeks ago she was standing on my work macbook which was several thousand dollars. I need to figure out how to stop her from escalating to the point where she is hitting me. Do I leave the house? no amount of talking will work so I have given up on that a long time ago. It's terrible, her poor little sister go's and hides in her closet while it is going on. I'm at the point where I am going to call the police next time - it's that bad. She's quite big now and it's really starting to hurt. Of course, I am the worst person in the world and Mom just has to know if I hit her back. But what if I do call the police, are they going to take her away - what if the neighbors see? To be honest, I don't care any more, this has got to stop. Sometimes, I feeI that I really don't want to be around her any more, it makes me feel terrible and like a bad dad, but she just abuses me all of the time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
