Should I Tell My Parents They Have ADHD?

Now that I know about my ADHD, I think that my parents, both in their 80s, also have it. I wonder if I should bring this to their attention.

Since they have made do, I wouldn't bring it to their attention. At this stage of their lives, they probably don't need to make life changes or take ADHD medication. However, if you talk about your ADHD, so that they understand your life and behaviors better, they may pick up on their own behaviors. If they do, lend them your favorite book about ADHD, so they can learn more.
