Thanks for the reply, ADHDmomma. I believe you may be right about her trying to meet mainstream expectations. It’s something I have been trying to tell her isn’t really important to a greater extent. Other than though, communication has been tougher. We can talk about light and trivial topics and have a good time, but whenever I challenge her views or engage her in any form of debate, she assumes that something is wrong and tries to placate. like you said though, confidence should come with time.
