How do I know when her mouth and being obnoxious is because of her age and not the ADHD? Her doctor increased her dosage a little over a week ago and I noticed an improvement in her behavior after she started them but we are back to her being mouthy and out of control with it. I do see a a change in her and she is easier to get along with now but she still runs at the mouth and will say things that are just nasty and if I don't respond she puts words out there that she thinks I am saying cause I am not responding to her. I refuse to let her drag me into any arguments or fights so she will accuse me of things that are just mean to even think of a mom would treat or say to their kids. So for her to accuse me of even thinking those this upsets me but I refuse get into it with her. Is all this her age? She is 12 going on 16.
She is seeing a counselor but I am starting to think she needs to see one with me and she needs to work stuff out with me. She sees things so skewed because of the years she was in constant trouble. (We just finally found out about her diagnoses after I suspected it for a long time.)
