I am wondering if anyone can help me or give me food for thought. 


Whenever my DD1 (nearly 7)  has friends over to play, DS (nearly 5)  wants to play with them, but he doesn' t really, he is wild and aggressive in his trying to be part of the game. 

Naturally, the girls don't want that and exclude him, that ends in fights and screaming and generally not a good time. 


He is not really open to doing something with me at that time, so it is really difficult to get him away from the girls. 


I think, it's a normal sibling problem, but the ADHD makes it much h arder (I guess). 


Any thoughts?

Does he have a friend that could come over at the same time? I can see that dd and the novelty of her friends would be way more exciting than playing with mom.
