..help prevent and/or lessen the severity of ADHD

What can we do to help prevent and/or lessen the severity of ADHD, in young children who do not have ADHD yet?

Re: ..help prevent and/or lessen the severity of ADHD

I would help lessen the severity of ADHD in others if i could, of course i would.
I have done a lot of questionable things , broken laws and hurt people. I don't
wish that upon anyone.
I think of this forum of one way of receiving help and support and also giving it back to people in need.

Re: ..help prevent and/or lessen the severity of ADHD

Mostly, just being a role model has been shown to have excellent outcomes for adhd kids.

Mainly though, providing extra time and attention towards helping them understand why and not just the how of life.

People and Kids need to know what they are focusing for. You just can't tell an ADHD person to do x and do y with the expectation that they will if you have not explained why it matters, and why it matters to you, and why it matters for them.

Most people don't take the time to do this for themselves, so it's a challenge, but I do know that this helps.

Good luck to you and I hope you find the answers that you need.

Re: ..help prevent and/or lessen the severity of ADHD

Quote:
In developmental psychology and developmental biology, a critical period is a maturational stage in the lifespan of an organism during which the nervous system is especially sensitive to certain environmental stimuli. If, for some reason, the organism does not receive the appropriate stimulus during this "critical period" to learn a given skill or trait, it may be difficult, ultimately less successful, or even impossible, to develop some functions later in life. Functions that are indispensable to an organism's survival, such as vision, are particularly likely to develop during critical periods.[1]

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_period
*We can learn and promote awareness about the critical period of emotional-self-regulation which occurs during the first few years of life. When young children are "especially sensitive to certain environmental stimuli".

-What environmental stimuli promote development of emotion-self-regulation?

-What environmental stimuli interfere with the development of emotional-self-regulation?

(especially during the early sensitive critical period of development, since most of us have symptoms of a lack of emotional-self-regulation (aka, ADHD) by the age of 7)

There are doctors that have been discussing these topics publicly for at least 15 years.

**We can promote awareness of topics like the critical period of early development here at ADDForums.

just so I'm clear this would be the paternal grandfather that you speak of? Correct? If so could you elaborate on this or show sources to confirm this?

My paternal grandfather was murderedwhen my father was 11. So this is something if it is what you men I would like to learn more about

There are many unintentional types of distresses that may interfere the infant-primary caregiver's attunement relationship essential for neurodevelopmental fine tuning of emotional-self-regulation, during the child's early sensitive critical period.

Distressed early attunement relationships are especially likely to be lacking if the fathers and other primary caregivers "missed out on their own childhoods".

Re: ..help prevent and/or lessen the severity of ADHD

I don't believe that we can prevent true ADHD but I know that the more people are educated about the better off we all are. Parents will recognize it and begin early interventions to help their child cope at school and in life.

There are other situations that can mimic ADHD- such as those listed above.

Whether people have ADHD due to a inherited temperament, and/or, due to abnormally distressful early life experiences, in both cases, they both still experience a critical period of emotional-self-regulation "during which the nervous system is especially sensitive to certain environmental stimuli."
