You should absolutely talk to your pediatrician about your concerns and the possibility of ADHD. You’re right that he or she can mediate a conversation with your parents if they think ADHD is a possibility as well.

There’s so much misinformation about ADHD that even the most loving and open parents may miss something like ADHD because they just don’t know enough about it.
