Many of the parents have wrong concepts over adhd because of this wrong concept parents are over restricting their children. This is mainly due to few rumors which are found around us. Parents must understand that over restriction may also lead to adhd. So I request you all parents not to consider the entire rumor and the sayings of all your neighbors instead make clear research on adhd or read a clear article or blog about adhd like this one. Even it is better to consult a doctor nearby.
