      Can ADHD skip a generation? How do the genes work? I am the older sister of a child with severe ADHD, and our father also has ADD. Is it possible for me to not be ADHD when most of my dad’s family is?
      Also, if my sister and my dad have some genetic form of ADD, then does that mean that my future kids could have it? Does that mean I have a dormant gene or something?
      Google hasn’t proved very helpful for understanding this. If anyone has any answers please reply.

      Very, but genetics is all about probability… not certainty.
