My daughter is 7, she has been seeing a psychiatrist for two years because of bad conduct and behavior. The psych. has said he thought she had bipolar disorder, but her pediatrician thinks it is the APD. That sounds more likely, given the things she does. She is constantly lying, stealing, and well, she doesn't care. I guess the worst has been stealing $400 from her aunt the other day... and she's seven! Her behavior has gotten so out of control, despite different discipline techniques, that my husband is ready to leave and move out... he wants to take our youngest daughter and get her away from her sister so she doesn't pick up the same kind of bad traits and habits. The pediatrician is also sending us for an EEG this week because it's all SO bad, they think something might be wrong in her brain. I'm at a loss and don't know what to do anymore... nothing works. Please, any advice is much appreciated!Answer Question
I don't have any experience on the situation but please don't give up on her and don't let your Husband. Don't EVER give up on figuring out what is truly the cause and always get a second opinion.
