You know--DENIAL!!! I am so frustrated with my DD right now, it's been several weeks since my grandson was officially dx'd, but only confirming what we "knew" for months. This poor child is having such a rough time of it at school--coming home saying he's bad and stupid (this from a child who normally tests in the 90th percentile and above on standard tests) and that he should kill himself--all at age 6. DD doesn't take it serious and is letting her mistrust of therapy, in general, to cloud her judgement in this--I've tried talking to her and she just flies off the handle, tells me he's not my son and to stay out of it. If I thought they'd do anything, I'm to the point of hotlining her, but they're so slow to do anything on actual abuse calls I'm sure not getting a child therapy isn't going to rank very high on their list. I'm doing all I can to reassure him, but his pain is so palpable at times. I'm hoping to talk with my younger sister (whose son also has ADHD) later this week and hope she can convince DD to get him into the therapist ASAP. In the meantime, anybody have any other ideas?
