That’s a tough situation. Unless their minds are open to accepting the information and changing their viewpoint, nothing you do will make much of a difference. Hopefully, as your daughter gets older and has more self-awareness and self-regulation, it will be “easier” for them to be around her and more understanding.

They simply don’t understand what they don’t know. Until you’ve raised a child with ADHD, you just don’t get it.
