ADHD is not caused by bad parenting. When a child with ADHD blurts things out or gets out of his seat in class, it's because he cannot control his impulses, not because of lack of discipline. Studies reveal that ADHD is a biological condition marked by less activity in areas of the brain that control attention, as well as imbalances in brain neurotransmitters. No single cause of ADHD has been identified; researchers are exploring both genetic and environmental causes. Many children with ADHD have a close relative who also has the disorder.
