ADHD and rude behavior/back talking/lying
I just joined the site and I am having some problems with my 12 year old son. His big ADHD symptom is impulse control, and I am just trying to figure out how some of his behaviors fit in with this. He has been on Vyvanse for the past 6 months and this has helped with focus in school. He is very smart, athletic and social so we are not having to deal with a lot of the issues that many other families are working with. He is definitely not meeting his potential in school, but is not doing horribly either. We have a lot of problems with late assignments and missing papers. My two main concerns right now are the issues of honesty and rudeness. He has had problems with lying and taking candy for years. I know that might sound silly, but we almost can't keep candy in our home. He will just take it whenever he can and then lies about it. I try to watch his diet extra carefully because of his ADHD. We are also having some problems with rudeness and back talking. He has to argue with everything that is said. I think this is becoming a problem with teachers and worry about him going to middle school. My husband thinks that this is something that he should be able to control and is unrelated to his ADHD. He wants to take away his sports because of some back talking to teachers. I need advice about any of these problems. I will try anything that might help. Thanks

My 15 yr old son received a punishment which he thinks is unfair. He now is intending to stay in his room anot not participate in life. Not sure what to do as I am a highly anxious parent, hate confrontations and he has taken off in the past. I'm at my wits end.
I feel like I'm just not good enough. I'm not a good enough daughter, sister, or friend. Whatever I do is wrong. My parents favor my sister. Whatever she does is perfect. I do everything wrong or whatever I do is not good enough. I'm so tired of trying. I just want to go to sleep and never wake up.
