Hello, my name is Christina and I’m new to this support group- looking for some help. my 8 year old son has ADHD, anxiety, depression and ODD. He’s currently on Vyvanse and Prozac. I feel the meds help him but first thing in the morning he struggles to get dressed and brush his teeth. Every answer is always “no” and he hates me. Later he’ll apologize for his behavior.. Completing homework is always a challenge and is frustrating for both of us. He seems to be very lazy with doing his homework- something that should take 15-20 minutes takes over an hour. I’ve tried the “reward” system but he seems to not care about being rewarded. I’m starting to feel overwhelmed with his behavior and attitude towards everything. I think he’s starting to have this “I don’t care about anything” behavior. The only thing I can say for sure he “cares about” is video games which is all he wants to do and makes him happy. I have taken the video games away during the week and limited his use to 1 hour on the weekends. He has a very difficult time going to bed. It usually takes him an hour to an hour and half to go to bed. Has anyone experience any of my issues and if so any suggestions? I’d appreciate any comments/suggestions. Thank you!
