: I am mom of 6. Ages range from 14 to 4 years old.. I am at my wits end with my kids.. I am as strict with them as possible but they ALL tend to do things that could either endanger their lives, or run in the house when I repeatedly scold them for doing so. Too many symptoms here to write about each one. Is it possible that they have ADD? I don't get alot of time to research.. I try to think about when I was a kid, and they seem to be normal..but if there is something that I could give them to calm them down, I surely would try it. I wouldn't want to "drug" them, but something safe for them, and some safety for me...
: thank you

ADD does not involve hyperactivity. ADHD does involve hyperactivity. Unless they have other symptoms besides the hyperactivity I would not suspect ADHD though as that involves trouble with staying on task and concentrating as well as having a hard time sitting still etc. I would give your Doctor a call and set up an appointment to discuss this with him as he the one best qualified to to help you with each child. Good Luck
