So can I do to get through my day . The stress of dealing w/ this Foster child is getting really hard to live with. He is on meds that help control his ADHD but he just doesn't 'get' living w/ others . He wants what he wants when he wants and if I tell him no then the acting out starts . Lieing to workers about things happening in the house , about his peers , chores not completed , et al . My partner & I are at our wits end as to what more we can do to support each other . We have applied for a respit worker so we can get away for some quality time together but we still need some support to get through our day with the daily fight caused by this child ! Anybody ? Please !
