I found this site today. I am very depressed. I have an 11 year old daughter who is adhd. She is currently taking Concerta. Anyhow, the meds have helped a lot, but we still have an occasional outburst of uncontrollable anger. This last episode took place while I was at work. My husband was left to deal with it. She tends to be very violent. Breaking things, screaming, crying, ect. This last time, she attacked my husband. He cried. She laughed. He put her in her room. She got angrier and tried to run away. He prevented her from running off by carrying her back into the house. She struggled and ended up scrapping her shoulder on the door jam. The next day, she told her school that we abuse her! Now Child Services are involved. I am scared. I live for my kids. Now, they are all at risk of being removed. The police interviewed us and determined that there was no criminal activity, or whatever. But, Child Services want to interview each child alone and then the parents. Has anyone ever gone through this?

Desperate Mom.

She may have ODD which takes behavioral therapy. While she's having these outbursts it's hard to talk with her. But after she's calmed down, give her examples of ways she can respond. Also, extremely important is not reacting with a lot of emotion in your voice/tone. Get a doctor to check out this aspect and re-evaluate the meds. A doctor's evaluatioion should also help you out with Child Services as well.
