I am wondering if anyone has advice on how to handle grandparents actions differing toward child without add and child with? We just got diagnosed and have not told grandparents, but have been dealing with the difference in how our children are treated for a while. We don't want to make the situation worse. I don't want to deny my oldest daughter a relationship with my mother, but at the same time she almost doesn't want to be bothered with my youngest. My youngest is starting to notice. I have kept from telling my mother the issue we are finding since our youngest started kindergarten, thankfully she hasn't asked how she is doing. I don't think there is a problem with her, she just learns differently and we will have to help her in different ways. I can't change how my mother acts, but I am afraid if I allow continued exposure and hide issues from her I will inadvertantly give my youngest a complex and make her feel there is something wrong. Any advice?

I am having the same problem. My 7 year old daughter kathleena was just daignoised about a month ago. When we told her grandmother, we had a lot of negative feedback, especially when me and my husband decided to have kathleena put on medication. I was also very worried about my daughter getting a complex about her adhd. i didnt want her to feel bad for having it or that it ment something was wrong with her. I simply told her adhd didn't define her as a person, it made her the special person that she is.

if you are thinking of medication i would recomend starting with strattera. it is non narcotic based and it is really working for my daughter in as soon as 4 days we saw results in her.

I don't know if this helps but i would love to hear from you. my e-mail is : [email protected]
