Hello everyone, I am new here and new to ADHD. I have a 6 yr old son and a 7 yr old daughter just diagnosed with ADHD in August. I am trying to adjust their food intake which is extremely hard since they are picky eaters to begin with. I have tried behavior therapy before they were diagnosed but didn't seem to do much. Would work until they didn't get what they wanted. I try my hardest to adhere to them and help them just seems nothing works. I have them on medications now but I would still like to help them and teach them how to try and control their issues if they can because of the loss in appetite I do not have them taking it when they are not in school. I am just struggling right now on how to help them effectively and my husband is from the military which he is strict and that's that. So he isn't much help in this department so it is just me doing this. Any advise would be appreciated. They have temper tantrums like a 3 year old, consequences don't so anything, they could care less no matter what it is. They are very defiant, I refuse to take them to the store with me due to this. I try to help tgem with tasks and they don't want my help. My daughter states she can't do it and most of the time breaks into tears instantly and then won't even try and sobs for an hour or more. I need help. We are going thru therapy but they sent me here to maybe get some advise. I am willing to try anything. This is all new to me. I understand it just don't know how to help them.
