After many wild days- the question has been on my mind if my sweet (extremely wild) child could have ADD. Sometimes when I speak to her, I swear it goes in one ear, and out the other. I was diagnosed with ADD as a kid and other than the fact that the Dr. had over medicated me- it was never a real issue. Yes- the Dr. over medicated me. I never talked (me? I know!) never wanted to go out of my way to play with kids- I felt like a loner (trust me, it was only temporary) Once we got the medication all figured out, it wasn't a real issue. In fact, I only remember taking it in Elementary school. I grew out of the lack of concentration, and did Herbal methods to help me focus. My question is this: Is the lack of attention span age appropriate, or is this an early sign of what is to come? I talked with a friend this morning and she was wondering the same thing about her kiddo. I mean- it goes back to the age old question, is it Nature, or Nurture. I ask myself this question all the time. I know people with kids who are exactly like their kids when it comes to personality, expressions, moods, etc. So if it is nurture- what does my child say about me?
