7 Year Old Screaming

by Megen
(Kennewick, WA USA)

I have a 7 year old ADHD daughter, I have noticed that in the morning she will be perfectly fine but if I don't give her exactly what she wants for Breakfast, this begins a HORRIABLE morning with her following me around my house screaming at me!!! PLEASE HELP ME I am getting worn out with the fighting and arguing everyday. I just want my daughter to enjoy her life and I am trying to find ways that I can help her naturally. If anyone can help me I would be forever in your debt..


Thank you for your time!

Routine and structure NEW
by: Grace Cross

Routine and structure are crucial for ADHD kids. They need a structured routine in order to feel comfortable, empowered.

I would suggest you see that your children gets the breakfast she expects. You can try to introduce her to alternatives by making them additional to the meal, rather than the foundation. It will at least ease up your mornings while you work with her therapists to come up with alternatives.
