I have seen that any toys we buy for her normally only lasted about 36 hours before being tossed aside. So much for the lovely pink kitchen we got her for her birthday! Plus, when we do ignore her tantrums and bad behavior, she calms down eventually. She will say excuse me and then ask "may I .....". If she does indeed have ADHD, then that explains so much to us and kind of makes it easier for us to cope with her behavior in a positive manner. However, the psychologist was a piece of work himself, but that's another story. We will be returning in 2 weeks to kind of assess the situation. I am doing it more for our understanding on how to handle Aidan and her moods. Compared to my oldest son (now 18) she can be challenging at times and not an easy person to get along with. Though, that does not change just how much we love her and everything about her! She is a lovely person when she decides to be and very intelligent and a fast learner.
So, I reckon I am looking for opinions and feedback on the "right" things to do for our DD (more like discipline, parenting, etc...). I am not trying to label Aidan to early or un-label her for that matter. She does attend preschool 3 half days a week in the 3's class (she has a January birthday, so will always be the oldest). DH wonders why her preschool teacher or babysitter did not pick up on the indicators. I feel that preschool teachers and babysitters for children this age are not looking for the signs and clues of ADHD and most are afraid of "labeling" them early on. I don't know - what are your thoughts on that as well. Thank you for reading!
