Re: Emotional Neglect or ADD

We are not born with ADHD, we are born with a more emotionally sensitive temperament.

There are all ways at least two factors involved.

Inherited temperament and individual circumstances. (Paraphrasing Dr. Mate)

Pre-ADHD hypersensitivity (temperament) and Early emotional neglect (circumstances) = ADHD

"When people are suffering mentally, they want to feel betteróthey want to stop having bad emotions and start having good emotions." (-Temple Grandin)
