Hi, it sounds like there is definetely something going on, but she is so young an ADHD diagnosis may be out of reach until she is a bit older.


It IS entirely possible she has more than one issue, it is called a comorbid.


Set FIRM limits and rules, and stick by them. DO NOT GIVE IN for any reason,she will figure it out sooner or later.


Is it possible she has been thru alot in her young life? Alot of kids who end up with grandparents or other relatives suffer from PTSD.


I would really suggest having her seen by a Neuropsychologist, asap.

A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
