It is normal for children to occasionally daydream during class, forget their homework, get fidgety at the dinner table, or act without thinking. But, if a child repetitively shows such behavior, it is a matter of concern. The child may be suffering from ADHD.
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological condition defined by a consistent pattern of inattention, hyperactive, or impulsivity that interferes with the daily functioning of children at home and school. It impacts children and adults, boys and girls, and people of all backgrounds.
The symptoms of ADHD in children typically appear before the age of seven. However, it can be difficult for you to distinguish between ADHD and normal kid behavior. If you spot ADHD symptoms in few situations, it’s probably not ADHD.

Another important thing to remember is that a child can meet all the diagnostic criteria for ADHD without actually having the disorder.

You can also take help of a homeopath in identifying the disease symptoms. A homeopath understands the root cause of the disorder, its triggering factors and gives natural homeopathic medicines to the kids accordingly. The medicines homeopath prescribe to children are made up of natural substances, hence, they are safe and doesn’t have any side-effects.
