Possible problems??

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.

also when she gets excited she tenses her whole body up & shakes...and im scared shes gonna hurt herself. she blinks alot too. her biological father is bi-polar, & i (sadly) am borderline with clinical depression. i have patience with her for the mot part but sometimes its just all too much not to notice uts not jsyt part of "being a kid". she cant focus on when im talking to her, & she always goes back to doing what i said not to.

 

im very worried about her...can anyone help me?? or at least put my mind at ease?

 

thank you

Hey there momma. You just described my 4 year old daughter. She is the same exact way. We took her to see a specialist and they said she is beginning to show signs of ADHD. Can you take your dd to see someone? That may be it.
