Best Answer

* Behaviors can be judged as normal or "problem" ADD by evaluating them in relation to the person's age and developmental maturity. For example, the same behaviors that are acceptable in a 5-year old may be problematic for a 10-year old. * Problem behaviors are also long lasting, tend to occur more often and create more problems as time goes on. Children with ADD/ADHD will have more problems than other children their age experience in the same settings. * It's not worth it to try anyway, since negative labels aren't helpful, especially for children. Instead, focus on correcting certain behaviors.
