Hello everyone. I am new here and wanted to give an introduction. My hubby and I have a beautiful 6 year old. She is my step daughter but we have full custody ad mom isn't in the picture. We have been having some behavior issues at school and home this year. She is in first grade...about to be finished for the year. Teacher states that she is disruptive and very distractable during class. We have huge tantrums at home over very small issues. We have tried the ignoring the fits and it has slightly helped. We have decided that she will not have sugar that isn't fruit for a few weeks and see how that helps. Also this summer we are going to try elimination diet changes to see if we can control some behaviors in that manner. We will also be talking to her pediatrician.
