Children have their own temperament and it may not match the mother's temperament and that can make life difficult. Rather than diagnosing the child I encourage you to learn some effective parenting skills and stress management for you and your child. Love & Limits by Elizabeth Crary is a great book about parenting toddlers. She has a great web site
My youngest son was difficult and the doctors thought he had ADHD. He was being seen at a children's hospital for a chronic medical condition and they tried to get me to believe he had ADHD. It turned out he has bipolar disorder. He is now 23.
