Hi, I am new here. My husband and I have been married for 2 years. A 2nd marriage for both. He has a son, I have a daughter, both 10. My stepson was diagnosed with ADHD about 6 months ago. I knew something was wrong the first time I ever met his son. Husband just told me he was really shy. This year he has had problems with school work and his teacher said he needed to be tested. My thing is, I think he has some other problems too. For instance, out in public or in school, he is quiet, shy, will not speak when spoken to by someone he doesn't know very well and clings to his dad. When we are home, he is rude, irritable, angry, has a smart mouth, won't share. I hate to say it, but I look forward to him going back to his mom's after he has stayed with us for a weekend. He cries at the least little thing, slams doors. It's awful. My daughter doesn't understand why he acts the way he does and it is hard for me to explain it to her. I don't think his medicine is working and isn't there something else he needs other than just medicine? Therapy or something? My husband and his ex-wife are not on good terms and will not work together to fix this situation. All this is taking a toll on our marriage. He does not discipline his son at all and I know it is because he thinks that his son can't help that he has ADHD. When I try to offer suggestions, I am just butting in. Anyone have any advice for me?
