hi looking for some advice, i have 4 children 5, 4, nearly 2,and 5 months, my concern is my 2 year old, i have noticed for some time that something was wrong, he is so hyper, aggressive, hard to control and just always on the go, ive had normal kiddy tamtrums with my children but his are so much worse, i have been to my healthvisiters and they just said to send him to nursery, ive taken him to playgroups and he is the same with other choldren, my eldest son whos 4 as asd among other ptoblems and it took me 2 years to get the doctors to listen to me, i know there is something wrong and it is so frustrating when they just fob you off, i hve a feeling that it might be adhd, is there anyone who could maybe give some advice? thanks

i am in a similar situation, my 6yo has been diagnosed with adhd and it runs in my husbands side of the family quite strongly. my 4yo doesn't show any signs but my 2yo is already on his way. i was given some great advice when drs started telling me my 6yo had adhd when she was 2yo. the symptoms of adhd (impulsiveness/hyperactivity etc..) are normal behaviours for toddlers but most will grow out of it, when they still exhibit this behaviour at 5+ then there is a problem. i would wait until they start school and see if they identify any problems your child is having then. ADHD is only a problem when it causes a problem. It is when they start to have difficulties with the educational and social requirements of school that you need to start thinking about diagnosing/treating (either medical or non medical) i know how draining a hyperactive toddler can be especially when you have an older child with adhd and there are days when i wish that i had 'normal' children like most other people seem to have. But just think what we would miss out on. The joy, enthusiasm, energy and inquisitiveness of a child with adhd is wonderful, everyday brings laughs and smiles (ok, frustration aswell!) but i would hate to have a child that does nothing but sit in front of the tv or computer all day, how boring!! Hang in there, try to enjoy the positives of having an active toddler and when they start school keep a close eye on how they are progressing. Most children aren't diagnosed until the first 2 years of school and if they do have adhd you know that school is going to be an ordeal for them, so let them enjoy the freedom of preschool years and try not to worry about it too much. hope this helps!

While kids may not be officially diagnosed before the age of 6 yrs. most parents of children with ADHD, will probably say they knew their child was always ADHD. My ped woudln't diagnose children under 6 yrs old, so he sent us to a neurologist who we are working with to get her to a therapeutic level on her medication.

My 17 year old daughter, and my 7 year old son both have ADHD (my 14 year old daughter does not). From the beginning, with both the eldest and youngest, I knew that "something" was wrong... but when I took the oldest to the doctor when she was about 3 (and her sister was born and was soooo obviously different in EVERY way), I was told that she was "normal" and told to basically just "go away". It wasn't until my son was born and the symptoms were soooo much worse than my eldest daughter's that we pursued a solution/diagnosis for him and found out that he had SEVERE adhd. It was then that the light bulb went off and I knew that my eldest had it, and had had it all along (and yes, even at 2 years old). I so badly wish that I had more strongly pursued a diagnosis for my eldest daughter sooner, instead of waiting for her brother to come along and his diagnosis to be what triggered me taking her in. Now, at 17, it is difficult for her to accept the diagnosis, difficult to convince her of the importance of her taking the meds, AND the 'bad habits' are already in place that I think may have been MUCH different had I have known she had this all along and been able to manage it better. I think my son's future looks a LOT brighter because of his earlier diagnosis. Don't give up, you're this child's MOM, you know better than ANYONE if there's something 'not quite right'. Do NOT give up until you find a health care practitioner that will listen and give you advice and help that you need! All the best!

I have 3 children, 6, 3 and almost 2, the first is an absolute dream, so polite and considerate (a boy), the second is a girl who at the start was a dream but now screams and cries constantly (but still sleeps thru the nite), the third who is almost 2 is sooooo hyper, in the last 24 hrs, has cut his head and split his lip from climbing and doing the fool, he is constantly climbing and squirming and just hyper, i thought he was just cute until a week ago my husband was saying maybe he suffers from adhd, is he too young? would love some advice!

My son is now 6. When he was 2 I went from dr. to dr. and received no help. They all said it's just the terrible 2's. I had raised 3 children and knew better. Finally I found a doctor in my area (calhoun ga) who was able to diagnose him and prescribe the proper rx. .We have our ups and downs but overall he does well.

My son is 23 months old and it has been pure hell through most of it. He is uncontrollable, doesn't care if he is spamked or put into time out, nothing works. and to top it all off he has ALREADY started talking back. and has never slept good a night of his life. it has gotten to the point to where we can't go anywhere with him in public b/c he shows out. not even to the store or park or anywhere. i took him to his dr. a few weeks ago for a cold and he was so bad in the dr. waiting room that by the time we got back to the dr.s office i was a nervous wreck and crying my eyes out. the dr. knew then that something was wrong and we've been trying him on different meds but most do reverse effect on him. but we are still trying. i just dont want to be thought of by others as trying to "dope my kid up" so that i won't have to deal with him. thats not the case at all here. i feel like all our lives consists of is yelling and spanking and it seems like it never ends. so in my opinion, yes, a two year old can have adhd. i ran my own daycare for over 3 years and NEVER had anything like this on my hands.

Fancy, I know exactly what you're saying. I have a 2 year old little boy and he is terrible, and thats an understatement. ADHD runs through his dad's side of the family, my sons 2 uncles have/had it when they were younger. My mom is pushing me to get a hold of his doctor for a refferal doctor who can teach us how to deal with him if he does have ADHD. My mom says 'normal' kids do not act the way he does. He just does everything he's not supposed to, he'll pour things out, i.e a whole gallon of milk on the floor, any glass that he can get a hold of that has something in it, is all over the floor, my whole bottle of laundry detergent on the floor. He's such a sweet kid but at the same time he's a terrorizing monster. It's like he knows what he does is bad, and he even thinks its funny and he'll come and tell you what he's done laughing. He'll get in trouble then turn around and do it again or move on to something else he'll get in trouble for. We're just at tied ends with it and don't really know what else to do. I'm ready to call his doctor but like you said it's hard for them to be able to determine or diagnose him with ADHD at such a young age and especially an age where they're gonna act like little devils. Thanks for sharing though, I'm glad I'm not the only one going through this tough time with my son.

i am having a lot of trouble getting my 2 and a half year old to behave she throws unbeleivable temper tantrums at least 5 times a day when she doesnt get her own way, she wont sleep at night im luckyif she is sleeping before midnight, she wont share her toys with friends, hides them everywhere when people are in so they cant get to them, refuses to eat with cutlery has to be her hands, she bites spits and swears at me non stop, does anyone have any suggestions? could this be adhd?

hi my name is tontalana davis and i was wondering if my 2 yr old daughter has adhd or whaty is the syptoms for children that is two year old with adhd 

Name: Serafina | Date: Feb 17th, 2009 3:32 AM
hi fancy-- it's definitely too soon to tell if your 2 year old has adhd. the reason is because all 2 year olds demonstrate the same behavior, it's age appropriate. just discipline your child, offer rewards and phraise and don't worry about it. adhd is usually diagnosed between the ages of 7 and 8. what are you doing for your 7 year old? hope to hear from you soon.

i was told that a child can have ADHD at any age it has nothing to do with how old they are it runs in the family.

We have an adopted granddaughter who will soon be six . Our family doctor has been telling me since she could talk and walk that she has adhd. we have had her since she was 5 weeks old.she cannot sit still or even stand still for more than a couple of minutes and from what im told its a classic symptom.

My daughter is 2 1/2 yrs old, She has seen a neurologist, and a psychologist. and still no luck with diagnosing her behavioral issues. She is very dramatic, which alot of people tell me that two year olds mostly are, very distructive, aggressive, and just recently when we have to put here in time-out she starts beating her head on the wall. The psych told us that she may be showing early signs of ADHD. But I don't know enough to say.
