I read a fascinating article today in the New York Times summarizing two studies showing that behavioral problems in young children do not indicate future lack of success. It also confirms what I have suspected–that ADHD is a delay in development rather than a deficit in development. This would be in line with my own experience, where I just grew out of my crazy, hyper and anti-social behaviors by about Jr. High and turned out (almost) normal.
Still can’t pay attention, but think that’s related to other things. In general I can socialize and learn better than ever.
I highly recommend this read to anyone who has or works with kids:
As a sidenote, it is very interesting to analyze one’s life in terms of the percentage of current life events and experiences one is willing to discuss on a public blog. I am running at about 50% right now. Clearly our successes and joys are for the public eye, and our failures and frustrations for the closet. Or in my case, the other journal. 🙂
Anyway, prayers are always welcome…
