Children with ADHD may have trouble focusing on tasks at home or school and often feel restless, bored or impulsive. They also tend to make careless mistakes which can lead to low self-esteem and difficulties making friends with other children. The symptoms of ADHD vary from person to person but there are some common signs that your child might have it such as being easily distracted by external stimuli like noises around them or having trouble sitting still for long periods of time without fidgeting around restlessly instead of being able to focus on something else such as reading a book quietly without being distracted by other things happening around them like watching TV while they try reading their books quietly instead of trying reading their books quietly without being distracted by TV shows happening around
