I am losing my mind.. I have three children.. My daughter *the oldest* has ADHD with the hyperactivity/implusive. she is on Ritalin and it works during school but it wears off at home.. and she is bouncing off the walls and on top of that I'm beginning to wonder if my 4 year old has it.. because he is starting to behave very badly.. I don't know what to do.. I just want to crawl into a hole and have some time without the craziness...I am married but my dh is at work until 6 these last two weeks then he's starting a new shift he'll be working 3 to midnight.. so that means It will be all me with 3 kids *the baby is not hard but does require my attention* I just don't know what to do anymore.. I feel like pulling all of my hair out..
ETA: that with my daughter the meds do control here behavior in school but I've still noticed she's not learning much.. I need to talk to the teacher as we just moved to a new school.. but it doesn't even last long enough for her to get home to do homework anymore.. and she is on the max dosage of ritalin she can take in a day.. 20 mg long acting.
