  • if you mean ADD... honestly every kid has ADD, theyre children. Kids arent supposedto be totally focused, thats part of what makes kids fun. But yes some cases are more serious than others, and those should be treated based on doctor's recommendations.

  • my son had adhd and odd, its hard at times, with him not wanting to listen, i try to ignore as much as i can. I also set limits that i have learned to stick to, if he chooses not to do his home work , then i can chose he don't get on the computer, if he don't want to clean his room , then i will clean it, that means he has nothing in his room... its hard i know hang in there
