You and your wife should get off the meds and take in what is really going on with your daughter. Then you can begin to actually fix the problem instead if just covering up the issue by giving the girl drugs.

You asked for advice so don't be upset by that either.

If both you and her mother are on meds for similar reasons it's very possible she obviously has been passed down some of those same genes. It's hard to diagnose at that young of an age however. Good luck to you and your family.

Are her days structured and predictible? Some young children need a lot of structure, set activities and boundaries in order to feel secure. The frustration and acting out may be because her environment is too unpredictible. There are also things along the autism spectrum that could account for it. Is she of above average intelligence for her age? I have heard of simple things like reflux problems causing behavioral stuff or allergies. There are just too many factors without knowing the child. A pediatrician is your best start. Start keeping a journal now of her behaviors to report to the doctor. Also, see if you can isolate anything that may trigger outbursts from her. Good luck and let me know how things go.

my wife does this for a living.. in all seriousness seek a professional please

little off topic but....
what she see's with a lot of kids are:
drug parents
parents using drugs in-front of kids (yeas she has kids testing positive too)
bad diets, for god sakes people... give your kids REAL food
SLEEP, proper sleep is essential
kids should NOT be on energy drinks (backs up proper diet)
parents need to be parents, for god sakes.. when are we gonna enforce a parental license???? the most important job in the world... yet unlicensed/educated/etc..

natural remedies...
a good diet
good sleep
get the kids active, NO video games/computer time is NOT active...
have blood work done, could be a vitamin deficiency
eat fish high in OMEGA3, take some omega3 tablets (yes i know not cheap)
eat foods like blueberries, grapes, oatmeal, (back to a balanced diet)
these methods should be THOROUGHLY exhausted before drugs of any kind are used

however... as she sees, some of these kids from drug fested parents really have no chance... so sad...
BUT.. We LOVE meth.... lol... it's great for bizdnez as they say....
really great for the economy too, sad but true...

Seems obvious the apple dint fall far from the tree! I would advise against medication for anything that can be dealt with differently or worked around. Especially at the young age of 5. it will grow with years to come and become out of your scope to keep up on. Be the best parent you can and you are already doing the right thing by going to the doctor. Try a behavioral psychologist, they have insight you will find valuable.

She may be suffering from a disorder and really can't help herself. A pediatrician is a good place to start, but you may need more help than that.

There is testing (even at five) that can tell a lot about a child.

Don't just accept pills from the doctor with the "let's try this and see what happens".

Ask the pediatrician for a recommendation for someone to evaluate your child.

Best of luck,

To begin with if you give the child any sweets, candy, cookies, Kool-Aid, etc. Stop this now. A child with ADD or other mental issues can NOT take sweets. We have a grand daughter with ADD and just 2 days after cutting her from any sweets, she is as calm as a normal kid. Give her a piece of candy and she turns into a Tazmanian Devil.

My grandson is 4. He has autisum/ mosaic downs syn. appox. 10% genes affected. You would never know it to look at him. When he was younger you had no idea. Gene testing had to be done to find out. It affects him in his speech, acting out and a few other things. His tongue is slightly posterior tongue tied and ears canals are affected also. It all depends on what genes were affected. Several possibilities with your situation. Stay with it and get her checked out . Your ped. should have some ideas for you. Best of luck. Ps... he's not on any drugs for it....

Why is it wrong to want to ask if others have dealt with similar situations? Sometimes the best advice you get is not from a doctor, but from the parents who deal with it every day.

Kids want attention from their parents--even BAD attention.
Do you and your wife both work?
Do you get home at 6 o'clock, figure out dinner, empty the dishwasher, throw in a load of laundry, then sit on the couch with a glass of wine to relax or go out into the shop to work on the car, then spend 15 or 20 minutes with the girl getting her ready for bed and reading her a story? If that sounds familiar, then the rest of the attention you're giving her is telling her to stop getting in trouble, stop being underfoot, go play quietly with your toys, go watch TV, stop being whiny, stop being fussy, please just leave me alone because Mommy/Daddy had a hard day and needs to relax.

THAT may be why she is always frustrated, has a short temper and why she is always getting in trouble.

Tell the docs you want to put her on Ritalin and when you come home from work, she'll be too stoned and zoned to bother you--which will make her perfectly behaved.

Not trying to be a prick, just have seen it a lot with people i know.

Kids are little people... and the things that piss them off are the same things that piss off big people.
They just handle it differently.

Can't help oneself? Serious bullshit. EVERYONE is in complete control of the choices they make and need to be held accountable for those choices.

My bad, couldn't help myself from posting that. Somebody, hurry up and give me a phucking pill because I'm can't control my own phucking body and mind!
