    Hey there,
    My daughter has ADHD and aggression issues and does not always think about the consequences of her actions. She is now charged with assault with a weapon and breaching her conditions. I’m really worried about her, as any mother would be. My daughter does not have any criminal record. I don’t know how to defend against assault and I’m really depressed. My father recommended me to hire a criminal defence lawyer so they would guide how to move forward with the case. So, I’m considering to hire a lawyer.
    Can anyone guide me some tips to control my child’s anger and emotions?

    There is always a triggering reason behind every behavior. It could be lack of emotional regulation, poor self-awareness, poor frustration tolerance, feeling like she doesn’t have control of her life, feeling unheard or misunderstood, etc.

    At this level, you definitely need some help from professionals. But, it would help a lot for you to begin to understand why this behavior and anger is happening.
