How old do children need to be to be tested or treated for this (ADHD/ODD)? Four major explosions already today and it's not even noon. Hitting, throwing silverware at me. Can't stop moving, can't stop speaking. Nothing I say penetrates. NOTHING. We go through this every day. She fights evewrything no matter how small. She argues everything. EVERYTHING. Even things that don't matter. Example: I say "I like this song". She says, "NO YOU DON'T, I DO. It's MY SONG." That's for the stuff that doesn't matter. When I make a request of her. Like, "let's go in the bathroom and brush or teeth", or "It's time to brush teeth". She screams hits me, throws things at me. EVERYDAY.Her father has been diagnosed with ADHD. I know it's genetic. We have been trying Gluten free/casein free, supplementation, being firm and loving with her. She seems to just be resentful, hostile and hateful, no matter what. She is going on 4 years old. When can she be tested? I am going crazy. I am at home with her. He father goes to work. It's just me, with all of this, every day.
