"Thanks Alex, This is such a valuable advice. I was talking to someone who has been through addiction and he said the same thing; no one could stop him but himself. So I was preparing myself not to be able to do anything but just being there for her…"

"All I can say growing up with MDD and a mom who knew about it, is she needs to be the one to want to stop. You can talk to her as much as you want, send her to whatever mental health professionals you can find, but it'll all be a waste unless…"

"I feel as if I could closely relate to your daughter because I am only 4 years older than her. In the small, small MD community, that's hardly a difference. I do recommend seeing a specialist, but first make sure that they even know what MD is.…"

"Thanks Source,Yes, you are right about the third person. I found it tricky to discuss it with my daughter for the fact that she is not aware of the negative consequence her daydream has (not being able to engage properly in real life). I think she…"

"Thanks, Renee,I didn't know that Radio NZ covered the story. I will contact the speaker and see if she know any specialist available locally.>I would not pressure her too much. MDD does not disappear overnight but with love and support may…"

"Thanks Laura,It helps to know that there is a way to manage it.I believe that daydreaming certainly kept my daughter's days happy and positive overall; considering how sensitive and anxious child she is, it would have been too much to…"

Source replied to A mother of MDer's discussion What can I do to help my daughter?
"In all fairness, this is a much more difficult situation than usual. For starters, it's in third person, which makes things way more complicated. Then there's her age. Children tend to be much more creative and fantasize a lot more than…"

Renee replied to A mother of MDer's discussion What can I do to help my daughter?
"Hello, Here is a link to a NZ radio broadcast about MDD: http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/afternoons/audio/201812192/maladaptive-daydreaming Not certain if this will help, but it may connect you with others in NZ who are aware of this…"

Whitney replied to A mother of MDer's discussion What can I do to help my daughter?
"If the resources are available, I would suggest she gets help from a mental health specialist. This will help both of you better understand her situation, why she does it, and how she can cut back. Have you tried getting her involved in after school…"

What can I do to help my daughter?

Hello,I am a mother of an 11-year-old daughter who daydreams intensely.She was always the intense daydreamer since she was very little. I remember her laughing out loud in her little bed when she was one. Her daydream is very active and she whispers and talks in a way I don't understand (almost like speaking in a different language), looks around, and moves around. Before I said anything about it, I could see that she was feeling guilty about daydreaming as she looks away looking uncomfortable…See More
