Does anyone deal with this? I know ADHD kids are impulsive, and dont think about consequences. I have preached consequences so much that my SD really does. She tells me all the time she does, and she can tell you what the pumishment will be, but the problem is after she thinks about it, she always tells herself she wont get caught, this time, i asked her if she thinks about how often she gets away with stuff and she says never, but i always think its gonna work "this time" OMG this is maddening to me!!!!! She is basing her behavior on unrealistic expectatarions!!!! She does have eternal hope i will give her that. When she has homework, she guesses at the answers and hopes to get a 100. She has a chore to do, she wont do it, and hopes i dont notice, she has clothes to put away and she throws them in the closet and hopes i dont see it. She gets her stuff taken away beause of all the afore memtioned behavior, and she just walks in and takes back what she wants and hopes i dont see that she tOok it back!!! How do u deal with this kind of Attitude??!!!! She cant make the right decisions cause shes holdin on to eternal hope whether it makes sense or not!!!!! Shes 9 medicated, currently vyvsase and intuniv, 2 nd change with no results. Shes in theripy, shes journaling, shes talking about her anger. We even put a punching bag in her room for christs sake!!! I have done everything i can do for her. Just wondering if this is an attitude is Adhd related can it be changed. Or will she alwYs live just outside reality???!! Insight please!!!' we need advise!!!
