My daughter is 9 soon to be 10 and she has had behaviour problems for as long as I can remember. She was an early talker and I think right at that point I knew something was up..by the time she was 15 months she would talk rapid fire from sun rise to sunset. She is extremely smart and capable of so much but at the same time she could care less and freaks out when she is asked to do anything. I asked her to help clean out the back of the car last night so that I could vacuum and clean the windows...hmmm you would think that I was asking her to clean the entire house,make supper,and do all the laundry. She lost it. Her behaviour is ridiculous sometimes...I counted three major tantrums yesterday over things that were not a big deal in my opinion. She was put on Concerta in grade 3 for a trial period and it did improve her behaviour but only temporarily for about a two week period. She hasnt been on any meds since that time. I just don't know what to do anymmore. I feel like I am a huge failure as a parent and that my child will never have a happy life....it seems she is tortured inside and no matter what I do I cannot help her. I have always been a happy,positive,joy of life person and I have endured ALOT of my own garbage through the years and have been able to go forward because I believe that life is so precious and beautiful.... but dealing with this is making me feel soooo sad and hopeless. I love her more then anything but there are times that I don't even want to be near her because she drives me crazy! It's so sad.
