proud to say we took her car away for awhile http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189963&goto=newpost Mon, 15 Jan 2018 08:41:00 GMT Of course this is Becca the almost 18 year old.

She spent the night at a friends and asked if she could hang the next day and we gave her until 10. 10 came and she wasnt home. We went through this once before with her so husband said he would wait for her so I could go to sleep cause all three kids and I had psyche appts saturday morning. I woke up and she wasnt there. Husband called over and over and she answered she was so sorry she fell asleep and he told her to get her butt home pronto. She came in crying she was so sorry she knew I was worried but we had to go I said we would discuss it later. It was a log while out with 4 appts and then the pharmacy and I had plans with the youngest at 2. We got back from that and Mark and I talked. We sat her down that night and told her. No driving for at least a week (more really but we do not owe her a timeline). The ironic thing is of all the shennanigans she has been involved in I really believe she fell alseep but it doesnt matter she needs consequences. I wish I was able to take a pic of her face.

She thought she would slide though. She said:"but I start my new job this week"
{Ill drive you}
"You will pick me up at 10?"
{yep}
"but I drive Ella and I to school"
{Ill be doing that }
"but I get done early from school, Ella takes the bus home"
{Ill be there in front of the school waiting-unless Im tied up in which case you will have to wait in the office}
"How long?"
{we will continuously reevaluate}We told her that her job and the rest of the world wont care if she oversleeps and she needs to be responsible enough to let us know what shes up to, doing and how she plans on making it home on time.
Is it wrong that the devil on my shoulder was grinning that big 'gotcha' grin? He face was priceless because she really thought some tears and apologies were going to get her out of this one.
We are damn proud of this.
My mom used to say" punishing you hurts me more than it hurts you" I believe her now. Its going to be a PITA to pick her up and drive her but its what has to be done.

Not only does she need to show responsibility but she is operating a machine that can be a weapon, its not something to sneeze at.

So did we do good? ]]>

I left my son at home this morning without a ride to school http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189893&goto=newpost Thu, 04 Jan 2018 16:28:13 GMT My son is 11 with ADD. I can never get him going in the morning. The typical morning is me waking him up with an "I love you, good morning" and after about an hour I am screaming about being late because he is still in bed.

This morning I just left because I was going to be late for work. He is at home probably still sleeping (no worries, I let my neighbor know and she will be home all day).

This has been going on for a while but has gotten worse the past 2 years. So, what can I do?? I have bought him an alarm clock of his own, tried waking him up to his favorite song, made pancakes (his favorite), did all my chores in the morning so that there was noise in the house. I just do not know what to do anymore.

Thoughts or suggestions? ]]>

Need some help with my ADHD Child. http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189880&goto=newpost Wed, 03 Jan 2018 17:45:55 GMT This is more for me than my kid. Hence where I'm posting this.

I have ADD, however my son has ADHD, with pretty severe on the hyperactivity and impulse controls.

He has 3 brothers who are struggling wanting to even play with him. Like last night, he was having more fun being completely out of control, than playing basketball like the rest. Everyone got mad at him, and he then assumes they are all making fun of him.

I have been pushing him pretty hard about being in control. That the way he is acting is pushing people around him away. Or causing them to make fun of him.

He jumps off the deep end at times saying "no one likes him". or will say "I don't care what others think of me, but if they call me dumb I'm going to punch them in the face"

He has such a sweet spirit. Always trying to help others, opening doors for people. Will go out of his way to help his brothers. but when it comes to playing with them it usually ends with them being frustrated and him getting his feelings hurt.

I don't know what to do. He's on meds. I try reasoning with him but it never goes anywhere. I'm at an utter loss... :( ]]>

<![CDATA[Handling someone's opinion]]> http://www.addforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=189861&goto=newpost Tue, 02 Jan 2018 03:27:07 GMT How do you explain to your child the place someone else's opinion has in their life? How much value should someone place on the opinion of someone else? Does it take precedent over your child's own opinion? Does it not?

How do you explain to your child so they don't consume themselves with thoughts of over others or forsake their own? ]]>
