Amanda has been in therapy of almost 2 years now. We've been through 4 therapists now and I feel like we've moved forward 1 step and back about 20. I admit it, with this child I am in over my head. She has been diagnosed with ADHD and takes meds daily. I guess they are working because her grades are getting better and she is participating in class which is more than she used to do. However, now the real behavior problems have begun. I guess that goes along with the ODD diagnosis. I won't go into too many details, but let's just say if this keeps up she may be suspended from the 4th grade. Her new therapist seems to be pretty good at communicating with her in terms that are on her level, so I am hopeful the we may see some sort of improvement. My friend Kristin is babysitting for Ben and Caitlyn this weekend so I can have some time alone with just Amanda. I am hoping that it helps adjust her attitude when she has some one on one time with me. We'll see.....
