Conduct disorders are not exactly the same as "emotional and behavioral disorders" which include ADHD and depression. Check out this site for info about conduct disorders: With ADD or ADD and depression there is a definite relationship between one generation and the next. I have done research on my family and it's medical history and found evidence of depression - Alcoholism and suicides - in every single part of my family tree. Of course, I'm not saying that all of my family members suffer from an emotional or behavioral disorder. It's just that there have turned out to be an alarming number who do or had throughout several generations. ADD/ADHD is a relatively 'new' disorder compared to depression. Yet I have been diagnosed with adult ADD and I acknowledge that I have had to deal with it all of my life. My grandmother has told me of some of my father's behavior when he was young that fit the profile. And now, unfortunately, I am afraid I am seeing it in my son AND my oldest niece. It is genetic. But fortunately, this doesn't mean your children /will/ suffer from it, only that there is a chance of it. And thankfully, there is now help for kids with ADD/ADHD. It truly is miserable for a bright, intelligent, creative child to have to suffer so. And there are new treatments being made available all of the time, thank God.
