Daughter has bipolar and is so disrespectful

My daughter who will be 8 soon. Gets down right nasty with me. I 90% of the time can breathe and get thru it but then there are times where she pushes me to far and I snap and start screaming and then bad things get said. I love my daughter but feel no bond with her and feel like I am the worst mom I could be for her.

Have you talked with your daughter's therapist about these things?

Has she been diagnosed? 8 is awfully young, not many psychiatrists would label her at that age. What kind of treatments is she in? Do you understand what her diagnosis means?

Has she seen a therapist?

Is she medicated?

Do have you tried other treatments?

Do you understand her diagnosis?

It can be hard having a child with a mental disorder. What does her therapist say? Bipolar isn't usually diagnosed until they are in their teens. Does she have other issues along with it? Does her doctor suggest any types of behavioral therapies?

She has been seen and she is a meds but can only be treated as ADHD until a teenager so meds only taken school days. When a bad day hits it is a bad day.

Quoting amonkeymom:

Get counseling for yourself,  even if it is from her doctor or from a support group. Don't let her illness make you into someone you don't want to be.
