Yes, your child does have some behavioral problem which can be tackled through parental counseling. Children's behavior develops in response to elder's behaviors because they gradually experience things and grow and learn. So, the way you tackle with your child is the most important thingparental counseling is needed. Regarding the diagnosis of ADHD, children need to be assessed in detail before labeling this diagnosis to them. Do not assume things just because your child is more naughty, it does not mean he has ADHD. Things need to be assessed in detail.
