ADHD does not exist.

At least not in the majority of kids it is diagnosed in, it is generally use as a cover for a lack of academic ability and/or poor upbringing.
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

I tend to pay attention most of the time, but I'm very over active and have a high inproductivity rate, spending a lot of time doing 4 or more things at once, and I'm really impulsive. Just ask me mum.

Well to clarify, it does depend on how the smacking is used.

Look sorry, I am probably being a prat. I can't say what you do or do not suffer from. You may not have had the best upbring in the world but I am convinced that the incidence of ADHD is severely exaggerated.

Nah, it's mild ADHD. I have the minimal dosage of Straterra for my age.

My brother has ADHD and he's extremely hyperactive without his medication. It drives me insane. This condition is certainly more annoying than it is harmful imo because my brother still gets stuff done in school and such.

ADHD is another name for a lack of self discipline in most cases. In the case of children, this often falls back to a lack of parental guidance because few people naturally have self discipline, it must be learned and developed.

You learn through sitting in classes you don't want to sit in that you have to sit and be quite sometimes so that when you get in the real world and have to sit through meeting that is a waste of your time you can do it. Or when you have to sit and memorize trivial facts for a class you are learning to concentrate when you have to sit and do trivial tasks for a job.

So when that guidance is lacking, a child is going to do what is natural. They disrupt classes and blame it on being bored, they don't study because they can't concentrate, etc.

Instead of ritalin, I would prescribe basketball for your brother.
