If you think you or your child has ADD, the first thing you should do is go to a doctor or phsychologist, describe your suspicions with examples of the behavior you suuspect. DO SOMETHING, DON'T JUST IGNORE IT!!! If a child has ADD, they can't control the behavior. Believe me, I know, I suffer from it. Diagnose your child as soon as you can, because ADD can interefer with social life and school. It may take a while to find the right med for your child, but don't give up. Doing nothing only hurts them in the long run. There are plenty of options.
