Daughter was diagnosed with ADD
Can anybody give me some advice, my daughter was diagnosed with ADD amongst other problems, she has low muscle tone and is well below average for her age. She absolutely adores her sister who is older than her by 2yrs4months but my eldest daughter has no time for her. She is also struggling to fit in with her step brothers and although I have tried to explain to them that she is a little slower and they must try and understand it is a lot for them to grasp. How do I handle the situation? She is also on Ritalin but tends to not want to eat when she is on it so I don't use it over weekends as it scares me, am I doing the right thing?
