  • Lack of impulse control is a huge one for my son. All kids lack it to some extent, but when the kid is wanting to not do wrong but can't seem to help it, that is a clue.

  • I'd try Google and look for reliable resources. Realize that most kids in the preschool age group show some signs of ADHD. It's just part of being preschoolers!. Also, there are other developmental problems that can look similar to ADHD. If you're concerned, talk to your doctor but realize that most dr won't diagnosis ADHD until kids are around 6 or older.

  • Sorry folks, but alot of those reasons sound like regular "kid" behavior. Check with your Doctor and if possible have an evaluation done by a mental health professional. I cringe when I see kids labelled with a disorder they really don't have because it can become a crutch for the rest of their lives. Not to mention that some doctors are begining to link Bi-polar disorder, depression, violent paranoia, suicide and other more complex mental conditions to the medications prescribed for ADHD, Ritalin/Adderall/etc. (You've seen the note on commercials for Zoloft about it causing suicide?)

  • my step-daughter has ADHD and it all started with her not being able to sit for long periods of time. She would only watch like 5 minutes of any show/movie. she doesn't color for long and it also got to the point where she would get angry and the only way to express herself was by biting herself. she has a hard time sleeping at night and is constantly on the go and you have to remind her about the task she is on. what you can do is have your child accessed by a doctor and they can tell you whether or not your child has it but it's definitely worth doing if you strongly believe your child has it.
