CatalogK9 – what a tense-full situation it sounds like! I don’t have children, but I’ve been in your shoes as the child. What I mean is, in a way, I would act out if I felt I was being treated differently or talked down to…possibly no different than how you were with your parents at some point?
Could there be a link there? Regardless, the important thing to remember is you obviously care – and so do your parents. But I notice a lot of similarity in how my parents struggle with me – is also the same way in which they struggle with their parents (my grandparents).
Regarding medication, the best way would be to work together on finding a specialist everyone trusts to give an honest and reliable outside perspective on this matter.
Good news is, you already have a loyal teammate by your side who cares equally 👍
