Or it could just be puberty. Like regular non—ADD related puberty. One of the hardest things my wife and I have had to figure out (and we’re still working on it) is what is ADD related behavior and what is just normal adolescent behavior. (Our son was diagnosed in 3rd grade. He’s 21 now and still medicated.) You have to ask yourself, if my kid didn’t have ADD, how would I handle this, and then try that first, before looking for ADD related responses.
