One thought on “ADHD: Nature or Nurture?

    I have five total birth children. Two are from a birth father who passed away. Neither child, now both adults, have or had ANY signs of ADHD. I remarried and had three more children with my new husband. Two boys were diagnosed with ADHD before they were four. Our daughter learned coping skills but complained of focusing issues. Now they are all adults. My new husband, the birth father of our three children, we now find out he was undiagnosed ADHD. He was the contributing DNA. Same birth mother, me, same nothing skills used on all five children.

    There is your study. There is NO doubt in my mind this was inherited with zero to do with nuturing.
