  •  I would caution parents about ADHD (1+ / 0-)

    it is a terrible thing, but it is over diagnosed. I was diagnosed when I was 10 (who would've guessed a 10 year old would not pay attention and be hyperactive!) and started off on ritalin. My mom stopped giving it to me two weeks later and I haven't taken it since. I graduated college, have a full time job and am in the process of applying for graduate school. Sometimes kids just need to grow into themselves and find what their passionate about.

    Again I want to stress that for people who truly have ADHD it can be awful.
