I've seen kids who really have ADD/ADHD, but I've also seen kids who just had poor parents too.
IMO, there is a fine line. As you are the parent, only you can say for certain whether or not your child actually does have uncontrollable behavior issues. Keep in mind that not all ADD manifests as a kid who just can't control themselves too. I saw at least child who just "got lost" inside her own head. Her parents homeschooled her and her father was a physician. They both knew she had ADD, but they did not want her medicated, hence the homeschool

I would be worried if children weren't hyper and looking for a way to let out that energy. I personally believe that most children are NOT ADHD/ADD. they are children, learning their boundaries in life. Now in some cases im sure its very real, but Ive seen perfectly good kids put on that zombie medication.
