i have a 4 yr old daughter who never seems to be able to sit down or concentrate on anything for longer than 5 mins at least...she gets very frusterated when it seems like her mind is goin faster than she can say what she wants to. i know shes only 4...but could she possibly have ADD or ADHD?? my aunt recognized it, as her son had ADD when he was younger...but my daughter will be goin to school for the first time in September & im worried that if somethings wrong she wont settle in class. when she gets in trouble she cant/wont concetrate on me when im talking to her & when i ask what i just said she cant tell me... i dont know what to do...& am very worried its something other than "just being a kid". shes so moody & gets so upset if something isnt the way she wants it. (i.e a toy in the wrong spot) she uses lines & patterns while shes playing...like lining up her toys in a perfect line, or a perfect circle...

I have a DD with ADHD and I refused to believe it until she started school and the teacher was seeing all the symptoms of ADHA and expressed all her feelings to me. I am her parent and was totally against meds an didn't want to believe that my DD had ADHD and of course we were ust to her behavior and did the best we could. So I finally took her to the doctor and explained that I really didn't want to put her on meds but she talked in into the drug concerta and I am grateful for that medicine because it has helped my DD focus in school as well as home. My DD is so much happier now and has change for the better. This medicine didn't make her all drowsy and like a vegetable ( which is why I didn't want her on meds to began with). I would say you need to talk with your doctor about her behavior and set the best treatment plan for your DD. Good luck this can be a hard road. research any meds that they may put her on.
