My 7yr old still has the problem of talking too much and not listening but it has now gotten worse. She can't go 2 days without getting in trouble and it has escalated to non acceptable levels. To make matter worse she has taken to lying and trying to cover it up so she won't get in trouble, but as we all know, Moms will find out. I have talked to her repeatedly about honesty is the best ploicy and that if she lies that the punishment for anything will be increasingly worse than if she tells the truth and accepts her fate. I am at my wits end here. She has not been tested for ADHD but we are going tomorrow. I feel like a failure for drugging my kid but I know it helps some kids. I have to explore all avenues. Please tell me it gets better, or my sanity will be gone.Answer Question
