I am in a situation which is almost the same, I have a ten year old who has ADD/ADHD, have done everything I can think of you name I have done it, it is a constant battle and I understand the crying at night it's completely draining in all aspects of life, I miss out on events outings and visiting friends. I am not sure I have a great deal of advice as I am still learning and understand, I don't have any other children to have to worry about, but I have looked after my son by myself.
I have the defiancy and lying at the moment which is horrible,.
If you want to chat via email my email is as follows, I never thought of ever going on a forum until today, as people with "normal " children just think you have a naughty child, or you are not parenting correctly which is not the case.
