I have known now for two years my daughter who is now 8 that she has ADHD. I am having such a difficult time understanding or finding ways to help her be successful. I get frustrated I myself am dealing with add, anxiety & depression and I am not sure where to start. I try to implement rules, healthy diet and a routine but it seem to still be a battle with her. She cannot focus, I cannot get her attention for longer than a minute and everything I ask her to do is a fight and I can’t get through to her. I’ve been trying to research and read about how to deal and help your child with adhd but I’m still at a loss. If there is anyone that can give me some pointers or can help guide me in the right direction I would really appreciate it. My daughter in failing in school and she has no friends and I cry at times because I feel so bad and I don’t know how to help her. I go back and forth with the school to make sure they are doing everything for her to help her succeed but she’s still having so many issues. I feel so alone at times because I can’t seem to meet anyone dealing with the same things.
