You’re definitely not alone. Many families with ADHD have family members who just don’t understand at the level we need them to. Can you sit down together and try to write up a parenting plan that you’ll both follow? Consistency is key with raising kids with ADHD, so maybe approach it with her from that angle. Having a concrete plan will help both of you, but it will also help your kids a great deal, especially those with ADHD.
