My 8 yo daughter is in the process of officially being diagnosed adhd, mainly inattentive (pediatrician did computer test and diagnosed her, but working with a psychologist to begin indepth testing for adhd and rule out learning disabilities). She has a huge set back in 2nd grade, especially with reading. She comes home every weekend with 8-10 sheets of classwork she hasn't finished in class. The teacher says she just daydreams most of the day instead of doing her classwork. Weekends are painfully hard trying to get this work done. My husband has finally admitted she has a "focus" issue, but feels she isn't doing her homework just "to show him she doesn't want to do it". He feels this is just her being stubborn. I disagree. I can no longer stand the screaming at her, the threatening her with punishment, it's so stressful! The pediatrician wanted to put her on meds, but I don't feel I know enough yet to agree to it and my husband is against meds completely.
Sorry, I guess this is mostly a rant, rather than a question. Anyone else out there that has a spouse you are not on the same page with?
