I find that Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a joke. Why? Check out this list here.
The symptoms of ADHD fall into three groups:
Lack of attention (inattentiveness)
Impulsive behavior (impulsivity)
Some children with ADHD primarily have the inattentive type. Others may have a combination of types. Those with the inattentive type are less disruptive and are more likely to not be diagnosed with ADHD.
Fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in schoolwork
Has difficulty keeping attention during tasks or play
Does not seem to listen when spoken to directly
Does not follow through on instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace
Has difficulty organizing tasks and activities
Avoids or dislikes tasks that require sustained mental effort (such as schoolwork)
Often loses toys, assignments, pencils, books, or tools needed for tasks or activities

Is often forgetful in daily activities
Fidgets with hands or feet or squirms in seat

This is exactly what I would expect from kids how do not know how to behave them self. This is not a problem if you teach your kids how to deal with this. Some goes for adults who have this issues. Placing people on drugs because they do not know how to control them is not a solution. It is just delaying the problem indefinitely. For everyone in question.
It is also important fact we are humans. Not robots. As this official government list suggests. Reading this list I have all the symptoms as a adult with ADHD/ADD. But you know what. I it is my opinion that this list is nothing short of a bullshit and not worthy of a attention.
They put it nicely in The Sopranos while ago. I agree with them.
