What Is Inattentive ADHD? ADD Symptoms, Causes, Treatment 18/06/2022

What Is Inattentive ADHD? ADD Symptoms, Causes, Treatment Inattentive ADHD (often called ADD) manifests as forgetfulness, disengagement, or distractibility, and can be mistaken for anxiety or a mood disorder in adults. In children, it may resemble a learning disorder. Here, we take an in-depth look at inattentive vs. hyperactive symptoms of ADHD.


Medical Research Council and Anna Fried centre would like your child 11-15 to participate in research for which they will receive £10 voucher after each session. Contact : [email protected]

The Social Executive Function Skills That Elude Kids with ADHD 21/05/2022

The Social Executive Function Skills That Elude Kids with ADHD Children and teens with ADHD may lose friends because of deficits in social executive function skills – the underlying processes that are involved in social skills ranging from perspective-taking to reciprocity and cognitive flexibility. Here, learn strategies that help them bolster these skills a...


On my wife’s suggestion, we visited a wildlife refuge yesterday and my 13yo started complaining before we got out of the car. Naturally, I listened to him discuss his hardships in all “I” statements. “I don’t want to be here”, “I don’t want to walk”, “I hate this.”

Eventually he asked me this question: do you want to be here?

“Not really,” I said.

“Then why did you go?” He asked like he’d really found some hole in the plot of my life.

“Because visiting this place isn’t about me. It’s about your mom, and I love her, so I went.”

He gave me this long confused, why would a gown human do anything they didn’t want to do, look.

“Well I think this place is stupid and if I could drive I’d be out of here,” he said.

I thought about laying into him. I thought about telling him to suck it up and be a good sport, but I had a feeling he would just dig in his heels, and act like a martyr, when what I really wanted was for him to understand an important lesson about what love actually looks like.

“Listen, I love mom and she loves these sorts of places, so I go without complaining because that’s what love looks like.”

He rolled his eyes, and said “going to a wildlife refuge has nothing to do with love.”

“Oh son, it totally does. When you love someone, it can’t just be words. It’s got to be actions, too.”

I raised my hands and gestured to the swamp land and the boardwalk, and the signs describing the animals habitats.

“Going to a place like this when you don’t really want to is the purest form of love.”

He clearly didn’t like my answer.

“Listen, love can’t always be about you. Chances are you are going to fall in love some day, and that person might be perfect for you, but you will still be different people. And sometimes being in love with someone means going shopping for something that isn’t for you, or to a restaurant that you don’t really like, but your partner does. And if you want that person to know that you love them, you don’t complain, and you don’t call the thing stupid. You just go because you want to see them be happy. And do you know what happens when you do that?”

“What” he said.

“That person feels appreciated,” I said.

Then I pointed at his mother who was grinning ear to ear as she took a picture of a great white heron.

He thought about what I said. He kicked the dirt. Then he said, “fine.”

It wasn’t an angry “fine” or an I don’t like it “fine” but an “I understand fine.”

And by the time we made it back to the car to go home my wife looked at our son and said, “you’ve been very quiet.” He looked at his mother, and shrugged, and in so many ways what he was really saying was “I love you.”

Go to the crying child. Especially the child under 7. The wrong coloured pencil, the sand in their shoe, the book that they didn’t want to read - it is all a big deal to them.

Think about the life experiences they have had. They haven’t experienced what we have and therefore have no frame of reference for how big their problem objectively is.

Their brain is also still in the egocentric stage of development, where everything is all about them.

Plus, their prefrontal cortex isn’t anywhere near as developed as an adult’s, meaning they do not have the ability to regulate themselves, or are only just beginning to learn this.

Dismissing their feelings (e.g. “you get what you get and you don’t get upset”…) or leaving them to deal with their emotions on their own stays with them. They may not be able to explicitly recall being left to cry on their own, but it will be stored in their brain and body along with other similar experiences (in their implicit memory), and contribute to their core beliefs (schemas), perceptions, and assumptions about the world as they grow up.

Meeting a child’s feelings with shame, ridicule or punishment also puts their nervous system under stress and their brain in a more reactive state, meaning they will remain in a heightened state and be more likely to become upset or triggered again.

There is just too much research and evidence behind this for it to be ignored.⠀

If a child is upset, go to them.

And as always - parents, teachers, anyone caring for children - you won’t get it right 100% of the time. We are all still learning and doing the best we can with the resources we have.
