My daughter is on an I.E.P. she was diagnosed with ADHD. I sometimes feel like we are missing something in the dianoses.
Anyway,she struggles with friendships as well as dealing with everyday kids.Comments are always made.She comes home upset.
It started when I allowed a boy to come over and hang out,They were always in my vision. She video taped him doing something silly. The next day she went to school and told kids she had a "boyfriend".I know why she did.To feel excepted.But the terrible part was she showed a friend the video and someone over heard(it's a boy that does not like my daughter) Then within days there were rumors.Ex: she was pregnant,she made a sex video,she was raped. These things were horrible.I went right to the principal.Who said it was taken care of.Well rumors are still flying around and the few friends she had aren't allowed to play with her. Please understand though she is 12 I believe internally I believ she is about 8or9. She doesn't like sports for fear of being picked on.She has anxiety about many things now.Yes, she is in therapy.With little progress.I just want my child to be happy.It shouldn't be a daily struggle.She comes home almost every day with some type of rude comment made by the boy that started it all.She also has a hard time standing up for herself,she doesn't know how to answer back from an insult.Any ideas??
