Is stealing common in children with ADHD? My daughter has ADHD and is almost 11 years old. Her attention and hyperactivity issues are fairly well managed by her medication (36-mg of concerta) but she still seems to have a hard time with her impulse control when it comes to taking things and lying. Now don\'t get my wrong 99% of the lying is about the stealing so I know that is the real issue. Do I need to bring it up with her DR to have her evaluated for other things? The stealing has gone beyond things from our house, she has now stolen from our friends. She is always punished pretty severely when she steals, so she knows there are consequences, but it is as if she doesn\'t know or care. Any help, advice, or similar stories would be great...thanks.

I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
