ADHD is serious issue in the lives of many young people. In this situation, a diagnosis can give hope to children and their parents in the midst of a confusing time.
However, parents must also be aware that it is possible for their kids to be falsely diagnosed with behavioral conditions. Parents must be wise as they look for solutions for behavioral issues and especially as they consider turning to medication.
