3. Cannot be still!

An ADHD affected child shall appear much restless when compared to other kids of his age. He shall not sit at one place. He will either flounder in the chair when forced to stay still, or shall run around the room even when asked to sit down or stay at one place.


4. Incomplete work!

A child whose mind is restless and hyperactive can never take a task to its completion. He shall always leave his homework half done, or shall quit in the middle of a game and start a new one several times. The reason for such a behavior is that ADHD causes the mind to divert its interest quickly most of the time.



5. Careless attitude:

Children are careless most of the time, and its pretty normal. However, the frequency of careless mistakes rises in a child with ADHD. It is certainly a myth that such kids are less intelligent. However, the fact is that it is actually their restless mind that makes them go careless under the impact of haste and confusion.


6. Listens to commands often less:

Imagine a child whose mind keeps telling him to run, do adventures, shout, laugh and cry at the same time, and react at the slightest change of a situation. Now try to think that whether such a child will be able to follow commands efficiently? Obviously no. In comparison to rest of the kids, ADHD children listen to their parents or teachers less often.


7. A normal energetic child and an ADHD child:

You might be wondering how would one differentiate between an ADHD kid and the one who is normal but terribly energetic? Well, it is difficult in most cases, but a single clue might be helpful at times to bring on the differentiation. A normal energetic child displays CONSISTENCY in their work, whereas persistence is absent in the case of an ADHD child.


8. Befriending strangers:

We need to warn children about talking unnecessarily to strangers. However, it is a natural instinct in children that they are shy and cautious upon seeing new faces. ADHD children seem to display lesser cautiousness when befriending with strangers. This is because of their restless brain that doesn’t allow them to listen to their instinct most of the times.



9. Too much courage:

You can expect an ADHD child to jump into dangerous situations too often since they contain lesser fear. That is because they are overwhelmed at emotional situations and cannot think properly about how to react. Hence, one has to be after an ADHD child and keep a watch over their activities.


10. The other side of ADHD symptoms:

A restless, uneasy and loud child is typical of ADHD, but that is not the case always. Too much of day dreaming and being unusually quite is also counted as a symptom of this brain disorder.
