One of the most common, I think, is that the parent of a child who seems out of control is a bad parent. Also, one of the best management skills is to keep a structured schedule for the child--as the child grows older it is hard for him/her (and maybe teachers) to recognize that the development and use of the skills is a coping skill and not a reflection of intelligence. Actually, it is a general truism that ADD people are some of the most intelligent people on the planet--not the most stupid.

Yes, there are some people that have ADHD that once they become older grow out of it. However, most individuals with ADHD have symptoms that continue into adulthood.

Some symptoms of ADHD in a child include hyperactivity and trouble concentrating. Some children are thought to have a hot temper while they in fact have ADHD.

The definition of crime in the social context is "that behavior which violates (goes against) societal norms". This can be somewhat misleading as societal views change over time and therefore such a definition is always susceptible to interpretation.
