My step-daughter is 12 and has lived with us for the past five years. She is a wonderful young lady very full of love and very bright. The problem is, we always seem to butt heads. I love her very much and have been there with her through all the doctor's visits and trials of medication and have essentially been her mom for the past five years. Yet she still chooses her mom over me. Her mom doesn't agree that she should be on meds and constantly interferes with her treatment by telling her to throw her meds away and not take them. When she spends every other weekend with her mom she doesn't take meds over there. Her mom is not invovled in her day to day life nor does she get involved with school or other activites. The problem is that her mom lets her do whatever she wants when she is over there and constanly undermines our authority. But what is really tough is this friction that has grown between my step-daughter and I. She is very jealous of her younger sister who is me and her dad's kid. I didn't know if other people who have kids with ADHD are going through the same thing. Does your kid constantly class with their siblings? Does your throw a fit everytime you ask them to take a shower or brush their teeth or do anything? I didn't know if it is because of the ADHD or if it is because of me. I am just overwhelmed at times because I am the disciplinarian in the house most of the time because I don't work. I hate it. Is this just an age where she is rebelling normally? I am at a loss.
