I’ve had ADHD my entire life....
I’m outta here...
That's me. But I think I'll stay and see what else an be stirred up.
A whole toonstrip theme:
"Dennis the Menace"
We all have a touch of ADHD and it rears it head every so often. This study may have some merit, but I wonder if being the youngest could play a role. Parenting by cell phones and iPads are also to blame - “here play a game and be quiet” is not parenting.
These kids are so constantly “entertained” by their cell phones that they can’t go five minutes with out touching them. I am going to conduct a experiment today in class. I will make all cell phone be put on the rail of my white board and see how long they can go without. I have this one kid who can’t go 2 minutes with out checking his phone. He is a total wreck and has OTMOTM (on the mind out the mouth) with no filter, is riddled with ADHD, is the youngest of lots of kids, and can be a complete PITA at times. If he is on his phone we get 100% more accomplished in class, even the other kids love it when he is not there. Worst yet, momma doesn’t think he is a problem. FYI, this is at a premier private HS.
