I was wondering if there are any parents out there that have children with ADHD or chronic sleep deprivation, and when did they start to notice the signs?

  • There is quite a big difference in those situations, ADHD is usually picked up around the age kids start school

  • My son was diagnosed with ADHD just before he was 5

  • A mum friend of mine only just found out last year ( child aged 6 ) had ADHD. And there is a possibility that her 8 year old does too.

  • My step son was diagnosed at 5

  • my first son has ADD he was six years old when he was diagnosed, paediatrician with him on medication and I can remember staying up with him because he don’t went to sleep this went on for quite some time but eventually you started to sleep well,

  • Yes I have one child with ADHD is on medication and when he was younger he never used to sleep very well because of that medication have also found out. that it stops him from eating, but when it has a rest of the tablets on the weekends and holidays he can eat the house out, i’m not sure Son or daughter is on any medication that maybe cause
