Tween Issues... 12 year old daughter
Maybe someone can give me advice. I have a 12 year old daughter, she is a beautiful young lady, smart. But lately she doesn't apply herself with school work, always moody, wants to be alone in her room etc. I took her to our primary doctor and he said she needs tutoring and then wrote a prescription for ritilan. Well that gave her headaches...and besides I sometimes think doctors tend to use medication as a "band aid". So she is not on medication now and I am working with my insurance to get her into therapy. Any other parents have suggestions on how to help. Maybe it's just normal behavior at this age to be distant. Just breaks my heart to see my oldest so sad. I have 9 year old twin daughters also, and I hope they don't go through this.
