[Video] Does My 2-year-old Have ADHD?

Asked by on with 1 answer:

How do I know if my 2 year old has ADHD? He is not talking. He will not sit still for story time. He is a climber, runner, and so on. Bed time is not easy he thinks it’s time to play. He will say words every once in a while. He will sit still at dinner time. My Husband thinks there is nothing wrong with him. But as mom I am see red light for a problem with him.

Thanks for writing in. Take good care of yourself and your child!
