lisamarie Posted November 11, 2011 Share Posted November 11, 2011 Report cards came home today and my DD's contained a note saying that she is struggling with paying attention, not talking when the teacher is, and sitting still. When we asked DD what the deal was, she said that she always has stuff going on in her head and she can't concentrate. She's constantly distracted. While I am prone to think that she's just a 6 year old who's bored because the work is too easy, a little part of me remembers hearing this exact symptom in reference to ADD (with no H). She's not hyper, she's very obedient for the most part. She is almost always in control of herself. But she has always been a bit spacey. She is my child who will crash into walls, parked cars, and telephone poles because she's not paying attention to where she's going. Just curious if this could be more than just normal bored, 6 year old stuff. I'd hate to discipline her when she really can't help it like she says she can't.
