Hi doctor,

My son is not paying much attention to anything like studies, games, or what other people say. He is 14 years old, and I took him to the doctor, and the doctor confirmed attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Can you explain what it is? Will any tablets help him return to everyday life? As a mother, how should I take care of him? Is it a lifelong condition? Will this condition impact the other one if I plan for another baby too? Please help.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

Your son seems to have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and you have to support him in all activities and arrange special education. This is a condition wherein the brain does not reciprocate to all stimuli, and thoughts are confined to a single stream. A permanent cure is not generally possible, but he can lead an almost normal everyday life with supportive care, special education, and counseling. Still, he may not be able to study heavy subjects or perform highly skilled work. Stay assured your next baby will not be affected.

I hope this helps.
