Needy 8yr old
New to this site, looking for any moms who have experienced this. My 8 yr old is ADHD, my EX, her father, pasted away 12/08. She displays the ongoing many ADHD behaviors, but she is sooooo needy with me, I am a FT single mom, we really have no family/support system to speak of. I have no real life apart from her, I am with her almost always outside school, but she is still so needy,yes I know some of it is from the grief. I have taken her to 2 different counselors over the 3 yrs, no results, felt like a waste of time and money.
I think some of it is a power thing, because she wants me to do things, I know she knows how to do!
So how do I get her UnNeedy?! I have searched the internet for info, but could not find anything.
