Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Children

Children’s brains are naturally wired to be distracted easily. This is for a good purpose, that of absorbing as much as possible from the surrounding environment and making new neural connections. But when this brain is flooded with too many stimulating messages, it tends to go into an overdrive of ‘switching gears’ and is unable to cope with the flood.

A child’s brain is designed to absorb, observe and interpret ‘naturally’ occurring phenomena around them with boredom being a healthy necessity for mental development. Sadly, there is hardly any time allowed to be bored and life is a series of switching from one stimulation to another. Especially involving fast paced media on electronic devices.

As if the poor quality of nutrition, an environment full of toxins and parents nearly as distracted as children themselves wasn’t enough, being exposed to unnecessary chemical treatments finishes the job quite efficiently and it is not surprising to see a dramatic increase in the number of children with ADHD in the past few decades.

Some of the important signs and symptoms of ADHD are:

  1. Seeming lost and not paying attention. Often daydreaming, or losing focus and being distracted easily.
  2. Impulsive behavior. The child does not think much before doing something against which they have been warned.
  3. Inability to be still for long. Being fidgety, occupied with some activity all the time, usually with switching from an activity to another.
  4. Not being able to keep track of their stuff like toys, belongings. Forgetting to do things.
  5. Being too talkative, intruding into conversations.
  6. Difficulty waiting their turn.
  7. Giving in to temptations too easily.
  8. Displaying risk-taking behavior.
