Your son wants to hang out at a friend’s house: he calls your cell to cell to ask.  Your daughter is staying late at school: she sends you a text.

Ask a mother how her day went and you may often hear the word “running” in the answer as in: running errands, running after the kids, running to make an appointment.

Why have we seen so many children, teenagers, and adults diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder?

Symptoms of ADHD include lack of attention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior.  And for parents with teens, ADHD can be a troubling diagnosis on top of an already difficult period in a child's life.  Many teens have trouble following through on instructions and don't seem to listen when spoken to directly, but it's important to know when a teen is just being a teen...or when their condition requires special attention.
