You may often find yourself feeling tense, never knowing when your child is going to behave disruptively.

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has long been linked to low self-esteem, anxiety, and other emotional and mental health problems. Some research shows that ADHD children are up to four times as likely as other kids to develop symptoms of depression as they grow up. These troubles often stem from the lack of control kids feel over what they experience, said Dr. Steven Kurtz, director of clinical services for the ADHD Institute at the New…

A new study suggests that nearly one million American children may have been misdiagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) simply because they were the youngest ones in their school class, not because they have behavioral problems. The Michigan State University study found that children who are the youngest in their school grades are 60 percent more likely to be diagnosed with ADHD than the oldest children, USA Today reported. Another study by researchers at…

THURSDAY, May 2, 2013 — Kids with disciplinary issues often fail to show empathy for other people, and the brain's reaction to negative images may reflect that, according to a new study published in the journal Current Biology.
