My five year old daughter was diagnosed with ADHD, TS and Dysthmic Disorder last summer. She has low self-esteem which we are working on through behavioral therapy. She gets VERY agitated when she cant get something done right the first time and she just gives up! She will destroy whatever it was she was working on and call herself stupid. It breaks my heart to see her this way because I know she is actually very smart. When she was diagnosed with ADHD her psychologist gave her an IQ test and stated that she actually rated high above normal for her age. How do I get her to realize that? Is low self-esteem related to ADHD? Anybody else have a child with the same problem?
