    Try giving your child melotnin at night. My 7 year old hated bed time it would be so many behaviors and sometimes wouldn’t be u til midnight, than she wake up screaming in my face that she’s tired. I started to give melatonin liquid at night around 8ish. She has started to really calm down and relax and falls asleep very quickly. As well as not waking up screaming in my face, she’s sleepy more soundly. I get her up at 6 am as well. She just started adderall a few weeks ago and I give it to her right away in the morning before we leave the house. Hope this suggestion helps good luck

    Hi I have a 7 year old girl and we just got tested last week at the nuero pysch. She was diagnosed with dyslexia as well and she has adhd. I was reading that sometimes they come together. My daughter writes backwards and has a hard time learning to read. She will be speech therapy soon, so I’m hoping that will help as well and were going to try to get her I to a learning center for dyslexia.

    Thanks. She goes back to her dads today for a week. I’ll let him know that if he wants to try it at bedtime he can. Are there any other side effects to be concern about. I haven’t noticed a big change yet and she has behaviors with me.

    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.

    Also like I said I do not know how old your daughter is, but when I was a teenager I was in jail and I had to commit. myself to chapter and was in the mental hospital and had to agree to meds, therapy. Like I said my daughter is 7 but I am terrified as she gets to be older and a teenager.

    I am not sure how old your daughter is, but I have a 7 year-old and she has a lot of anger issues. Dad and I are divorced and she witnessed abuse at 3 before we split when she was 3 and half. I also struggling with my own mental health, but my daughter has made self threat and threats to others. She can not handle her anger, does not accept consequences or criticism. Her dad just agreed to start meds, since he does not co parent with me at all. I am hoping this will help. My daughter has done a day treatment program with other kids more her age. Does your daughter see a therapist, you could try seeing if there’s programs in your area that similar.
