Adapting to ADHD --- It isn't good or bad, it just is what it is

That's my boy!

Posted 04-15-12 at 12:18 PM by KCTang
My son will be 15 months old in a couple days.

He's an adorable little guy, very well-behaved, and it makes my wife and I wonder whether
our next kid (if/when we have one) is going to be a little hellion to compensate .

Something happens to you though, when you read and think lots about ADHD, and you have
a kid, is you start to wonder just what is a sign of ADHD and what isn't.

Now when I'm spending time with him, I already try to shut off thinking about research. But
he'll do something classic ADHD, like get distracted, and I can't help but think, "At what age
does that shift from just a typical child's behavior to a sign of a full blown disorder?"

Maybe I'm thinking too much about these things --- and I know I am --- but as a parent, I
am worried that I've passed on something rather difficult to deal with, to my son.

I guess all I can hope for is to be the best father I need to be, to support his struggles as
he's growing up, whether they're caused by ADHD or not.

    Thanks guys.

    I do enjoy him, every day. And even so, he's growing up quite fast! It really is true what they say.
