I'm new here. My 6.5 yo daughter was recently diagnosed with ADHD. She holds it together at school, but loses it mostly with me at home, not my husband so much. It has gotten worse recently, holidays, I suppose. It can be around turning tv off, getting ready for bed, anything she doesn't want to do. She starts yelling, hitting, throwing things. Time outs don't work because she will not stay in her room. She doesn't care if we take away privileges. She is really out of control. She is in therapy, we have tried lots of things, OT for sensory, parenting group, reward charts. Sometimes we have to hold her to protect her and us. She is not on meds, but we have recently started melatonin to get her to sleep. It has worked a few nights, but didn't last night. We also give her omega 3's.
I am really sad because I miss my sweet girl. She seems so out of control. Anyone had experience with this and what has worked for you?
