I completely understand how you feel. I was taught not to disrespect my parents. I have adhd myself and it was a battle and as I got older I had to write sentences was grounded. I have had to learn to shut up and listen. I have a 7 year old daughter and it is a constant battle with her. I have to repeat myself, I scold and yell and get frustrated. I try to make it up by telling her I love her and I understand the struggles. I am having to learn to walk away when I’m breaking point. There has been times where she will not want me around, and I struggle to calm her down and I want to be there but she’s so angry and hurt with me. Any tips for me as well.
