How to Recognize ADHD Symptoms in Children

Full Playlist:
Watch more Children's Health & Safety videos:

Is your child high spirited and unfocused -- or suffering from Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder? These ADHD guidelines will help you decide if a checkup is in order.

Step 1: Note their attention span
Note their capacity for concentrating. Most young children have short attention spans, but those with ADHD don't seem to be listening even when they're spoken to. They frequently lose things; have difficult following instructions; and often make careless mistakes.

Step 2: Rate their hyperactivity
Recognize if their energy level seems excessive, even for a child. Are they unable to sit without fidgeting? Do they get in trouble at school for leaving their seat, or running and climbing excessively or inappropriately? Do they talk incessantly? Interrupt constantly?

Some children are more inattentive than hyperactive, and vice versa. Girls are more likely to have more attention problems, while boys more often fall into the hyperactive category.

Step 3: Think how long it's lasted
Consider how long the behavior has been going on. If you've observed symptoms for more than six months, it might be ADHD.

Step 4: Consider where it occurs
Note where their behavior takes place. If it's only at home, or only at school, something other than ADHD may be to blame for their symptoms.

Step 5: Gauge the seriousness
Gauge the seriousness of the problem. Children with ADHD are regularly disruptive at school and at home. Their behavior causes problems in their relationships with both adults and other children.

Step 6: See the doctor
If you recognize any of these symptoms in your child, take them to your pediatrician. It's important that they have a medical checkup to rule out other causes for their behavior before ADHD is diagnosed.

Did You Know?
Children whose mothers had smoked while pregnant were more than twice as likely to have ADHD as children whose mothers did not smoke.

This free audio book was read and recorded by a LibriVox volunteer Ruth Golding.

As the New York Times said in 1903, this lesser-known work by Jerome K. Jerome does not display the wit of Congreve or even the glittering sort Mr. Jerome employs in some of his other books.

It takes the form of imaginary conversations between the writer and a number of un-named characters at the afternoon tea table. The Woman of the World, the Old Maid, the Girton Girl, the Philosopher and the Minor Poet wax lyrical on subjects like marriage, art, society and politics. Frequently they appear to prefer the sound of their own voice to that of others.

Although I couldn't agree with the NY Times that it is the Baedeker guide to conversation, it is certainly an eye-opening glimpse into this now almost extinct art. The participants are already bemoaning the lack of invigorating conversation in society: Conversation has become a chorus; or, as a writer wittily expressed it, the pursuit of the obvious to no conclusion.

Here's Why You Rarely Saw Barron During Trump's Presidency

When Donald Trump gave his final speech as the 45th President of the United States on Wednesday, January 20, his son, Barron Trump, was nowhere to be found. The rest of the family, including Trump's wife Melania, his daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, and his sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, gathered at Joint Base Andrews for his final sendoff. Barron, however, was notably missing in action. Many wondered why the 14-year-old was not in attendance during the momentous event and a firestorm of questions rang out on social media.

One Twitter user posted, Did they leave Barron inside?, giving a nod to the former first son’s former home, The White House. Another user said:

Did Trump just Home Alone Barron Trump? I didn't see him get on [Air Force One]. The Bidens better check the basement.

Barron was also absent from the Trump family's Christmas card in 2017 and, as Eastbay Times reported, many accused his parents of a snub. Years later, it was alleged that Barron was left out of his family's annual Christmas Eve dinner, according to Express.

Another tweet rang out after the Trump family’s 2019 celebration, asking:

So where's the kid? Where's Baron? Does he not spend time with any of his children, when they are teenagers? It's Christmas, and you would think they would've showed off the kid.

From the moment former President Donald Trump won the 2016 election against Hillary Clinton, Barron Trump, just 10 years old at the time, was subject to harsh criticism and downright bullying on social media for his demeanor during his father’s victory speeches.

As The Sun reported, it was 3 in the morning and Barron was obviously exhausted, and likely bored, like any kid his age would be. But the internet trolls, and likely some angry critics of the controversial election, took out their frustrations on the young Barron. According to the outlet, one Twitter user went so far as to comment:

Meanwhile Barron trump looking like Damien the antichrist.

Sadly, it didn't stop there. Even celebrities thought fit to bring Trump's youngest into their political commentary. Most notoriously, in a since deleted video, Rosie O'Donnell, without any prompting, speculated that Barron might have autism. Variety reported that the often outspoken O'Donnell:

shared a seven-minute video compiling clips from the Republican National Convention, the presidential debates, and Trump's acceptance speech that suggested 10-year-old Barron might be showing signs of autism.

At the time she claimed she raised the issue because her own daughter was on the spectrum and she doubled down in a since deleted tweet defending her controversial video, saying:

what an amazing opportunity to bring attention to the AUTISM epidemic

Regardless of O'Donnell's motivation, bringing a minor into the conversation was inappropriate and she was quickly chided for her lapse in judgment.

Chelsea Clinton was one of Barron Trump's most fervent defenders, at the time, and her ability to put aside her partisan alignment and see the potential harm of mocking a child in the media, likely came from first hand experience. In a tweet from August of 2017, Clinton demanded:

It's high time the media & everyone leave Barron Trump alone & let him have the private childhood he deserves.

Melania Trump was obviously well aware of the online bullying and criticism of her only child and she quickly took to Twitter to thank Chelsea Clinton for her support, writing:

Thank you @ChelseaClinton – so important to support all of our children in being themselves!

It was less than a year later that the former FLOTUS launched her Be Best campaign, which would focus on childhood mental health issues and social media bullying.

While the exact reason behind Barron's absences may never be disclosed, they could simply be the result of his parents, especially mom Melania, wishing to shelter him.

As some might recall, Melania was forced to speak out against professor Pamela Karlon in December 2019 after she used Barron to make a point about President Trump not being above the law.

The professor’s attempted zinger did not land, and Melania immediately fired back on Twitter, saying:

A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.

A short time later, Karlon offered a public apology for her comments about Barron, saying:

I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president's son. It was wrong of me to do that. I wish the president would apologize, obviously, for the things that he has done that's wrong, but I do regret having said that.
