Need help with 12 year old daughter who is defiant
My daughter is 12 and fits the description of ODD. She can be the sweetest girl but if you make her mad or she doesn't get her way it's like a switch is flipped and she acts out. The last couple of weeks have been awful. When she gets in trouble I ask her to go to her room, of course she doesn't listen the 1st time. It has gotten physical recently, she doesn't think she has to respect adults. I was holding her down by her arms & she spit in my face. That was the last straw for me, I sent her to stay at my moms for 2 days. She is back home but it still continues. I have a 5 year old son & I feel like a referree when I get home from work, she is constantly picking on him. I am at the end of my rope and not quite sure what to do or where to start. She was diagnosed as ADHD a few years ago, she was on meds but I took her off of them because I didn't believe she was ADHD. She has been to a psychologist but she does not speak to anyone to let out her feeling or to explain why she is doing the things she does. She gets in trouble at school but always has an excuse as to why she did what she did. I have noticed a pattern at school, if it's a 1st or 2nd year teacher, she misbehaves or doesn't respect them. If it's a teacher that has been teaching for several years, she doesn't misbehave & the teacher has no trouble with her. I don't understand it at all!! Just looking for advice and support, not quite sure what to do.

I'm new here. I haven't read enough posts to know everyone's story, nor do I have it in me to explain the breadth of mine at the moment. But, I could write a very long and extensive book on my experiences. My son is 17 and today I'm feeling the last 17 years of parenting him. He's in his senior year and I had to take away Homecoming today, he deserved that punishment ten times over, but still I...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
