My daughter and I have both recently been diagnosed with adhd inattentive type. She is eager to learn and eager to please but quick to forget rules and resort to vandalism if not kept occupied and in check all the time. Reward systems work really well to increase positive behavior but I struggle with how to deal with negative behavior. It's hard to get my husband to really "get it" and stick with the system.

I keep wondering if it's normal to be so tired. I will get 8ish hours of sleep but...if I set an alarm and don't sleep till my body wakes me up naturally, I just feel like I'm so spacey and dragging myself along.

Aug 21, 2014 - 5:57 AM - by Jacksper
Hello there!

Yesterday I watched the movie "the fault in our stars" and I hate to admit it, but I had some tears . I never cry, not about "real life" anyways, which can be quite tough at times. In a strange way it actually felt good to experience this emotion and I though it would be good to express my emotions more often - especially my negative... [Read More]

Tying up toys?
Aug 19, 2014 - 2:03 PM - by Cecily
Anyone aware of the psychology behind tying toys up? Our 6-year-old daughter with ADHD has liked tying up her toys for a couple years now. We're always finding her dolls and stuffies tied up and hanging from things.
