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.
