Can anyone explain why parents of multiple children can have one that is hyperactive while the others are normal?

Did they just forget to parent, just one of their kids?

Get kid, raise it a bit over 3-4 years, get horny, get another kid, ignore kid no.1 for 3-4 years.
The idea of any hi-fi system is to reproduce the source material as faithfully as possible, and to deliberately add distortion to everything you hear (due to amplifier deficiencies) because it sounds 'nice' is simply not high fidelity. If that is what you want to hear then there is no problem with that, but by adding so much additional material (by way of harmonics and intermodulation) you have a tailored sound system, not a hi-fi. - Rod Elliot, ESP

To your first statement    WRONG

To your second statement.... WAY WRONG

I was diagnosed in at the age of 6 .....   in 1965     Think that thumps the 20 years crap.

My Father is old school English and my Mother was brought up the same way.  Spankings and even a belting from Dad, spankings and a wooden spoon from Mom.
Both had a constant fight with school boards with your beliefs. Disregarding  the tests done by privet and public agency's.
I think that covers your bad parenting
Secobarbital (Seconal), Methylphenidate (Ritalin) for school and SELF control.

Massively misdiagnosed   YES

Err bi-polar depression is completely different from ADD/ADHD.

tl;dr = Shut the fuck up until you know what you're talking about.

Parental discipline has nothing to do with bipolarity.

But wouldn't that be classed as Necro posting?
Or is it allowed as long as you keep to the topic?
Or is that not far enough back into the past to count?

(i think there was a more recent one though, I remember a "ADHD, does it exists" thread a few months back..

Bipolar is real you fucktard. ADD and ADHD is misdiagnosed most of the time. Go learn some psychology and stop looking like zac effron.

My son has ADD; he has high-energy and hyper at school. I believe it is because he doesn't do much at home. He lives with his mom whom is not a very active person. His after school-activity consist of staying inside the house or at church. I explained to her he needs an outlet to burn off some energy, so this year she is signing him up for baseball. So far he is doing pretty well.

lol I read the thread title then skipped to the tl:dr. Didn't even notice he had said bi-polar till you mentioned it.

Yeah sounds like a pretty classic example of what I'd consider a misdiagnosis. If they ever work out a physiological backing for ADD/ADHD I think most parents would have to accept that their kids just lack self control without blaming it on a disorder.

I never realised you were a doctor/scientist Mitch. Did you ever consider that as medical knowledge advances more light is thrown on various conditions and ailments that were previously unrecognised or simply ignored, hence why we have more medical conditions in the medical dictionary nowadays?

People have said the same thing about dyslexia and depression in the past too and to be quite frank it's ignorance of the highest order. Even now we only know the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the complex hormonal and chemical structures of the human body and brain, all it takes is for one hormone or chemical to be out of whack for things to go haywire quite dramatically. I'd like to see you share your opinions so openly with a sufferer of clinical depression or bi-polar disorder.

One thing I will agree with is that teachers, parents and doctors are a little too eager to label kids with these conditions instead of really studying the situation to see if the kid is just a little shit or not.

You know Michael Phelps was diagnosed with ADHD, and instead of taking pills. He decided to put his energy on swimming, and look at him, one of the greatest swimmers of all time.

Edit: You see, the greatest "cure" fot ADHD is not taking pills, but finding an activity to spend that energy on.

Bi polar disorder is also known as manic depression. It is when you are generally normal psychologically but you get episodes of mania (very happy and very active, to the extent where you can be a danger to yourself and others) as well as periods of intense depression.

Its a very odd disorder that i wish i studied in my psychology A2, but we only do unipolar depression .

So many people are getting offended at his jab on people with Bi Polar, anything you guys would like to tell us?

I dunno about Bi Polar, but he's right about ADHD and whatever the other one is. Psychology is like Art, looking for shit that ain't there just for the sake of saying something.

None. They saw a kid who was mis diagnosed because of a retarded doctor and start saying ADHD + all the other stuff = crap.



By the way if ADHD would be fake and a result of parenting shouldn't you be able to teach someone how to have ADHD :p?

Bipolar / manic depression is a real recognised problem, lumping it in the same group as ADD/ADHD makes as much sense as grouping schizophrenia with ADD/ADHD. It's a 'well known' mental illness, some spotlight celebrities such as Stephen Fry very publically suffer from it- he in fact tried very publically to kill himself whilst on a manic depressive swing.

You must've been hitting the pipe these last few days with how much crap you've slinging around these parts, Mitch. Did you also know that there's no such thing as a round earth, and that you'll die if you drive a convertible at 60 MPH? It's all just new age science crap. We knew what the deal was before it came along and started talking shit.
