ADHD load of my arse

Fed up to the back teeth of hearing the term ADHD

I'm 34 and when I was being a little **** I was "hyperactive" or just a kid being a kid or naughty etc.

Now however there's these magical four letters ADHD that get thrown around left right and centre which coincidentally you can get increased benefits for and believe it or not one of my birds mates actually gets carees allowance cos her kids "got ADHD"

Maybe there is the odd genuine case of ADHD I'm not medically trained but **** me it's like it's an epidemic.

IMO it's down to the parenting.
This is going to make me sound like a cnut but here goes.

Either the kid is from a broken family dad ****ed off etc
Parents are piss heads
On the dole sick whatever
Council house (I'm from a council estate myself so nothing against them)
Parents don't give a ****
Swinging the lead for more benefits.

Is my generalisation wrong.

Do you know of anyone with ADHD who's parents really go the extra mile to bring them up well. Quality family time not just plonked in front of telly/computer etc.
Family walks, routines homework done each night etc
Or am I just a miserable cnut that's bitter cos I'm working my arse off when I could just as easily live this lifestyle on benefits

I think your 99% right , I think the condition genuinely exists and have seen a good set of parents with twins 1 had it one didn't , but when there drug pushers (doctors) and drug companies making a killing out of pushing drugs like Ritalin  onto us then there going to be handed out like candy , its a bit like antidepressants , nearly everyone I know has depression..

There's a kid in my son's class who has bullied my son for 6 months...I've kicked off with the parents and also the teachers at the school yet they allow him to bully my son because he has ADHD....He's an horrible little c$@t and I would really love to bully him myself.

I could virtually guarantee to reduce the recorded numbers by at least 90 percent.

1) ADHD does not qualify you for additional benefits
2) someone "suffering" with ADHD is required to undertake an hour a day quality family time with no telly. Sch as walking to park, playing football going fishing etc etc. don't so this lose your benefits as they will be paid to someone else who will give your child the extra attention they need.
And voila suddenly little timmy is an angel again

Steve I would be tempted to chin the parents of the offending child and blame my bipolar/depression/personality disorder and play them at their own game

I don't think it helps Dazz but would blame bad parenting/home set up on the whole rather than solely the diet

I suppose the 2 are probably intertwined , the typical tracksuit family are probably **** parents who eat **** food

There a kid I know who was frankly a little ****! From good parents they tried all sorts to calm him down. He had ADHD treatment and placed on medication 6 months ago he was on the medication for three months. Now he's a different kid lost a load of puppy fat totally calmed down. You wouldn't even recognise him.

IMO part of the problem is our blame culture, it's always someones elses fault or some condition.  No one wants to take responsibility for little Johnny being a little brat.
 
The other part is the, dubious at best, subject of psychology (not psychiatry).  To justify their own exsistance psychologists will come up with term after term for pretty much made up conditions.  Parents, scroungers, professional victims latch onto these terms and milk them like they are something real and not just made up yesterday.  This then validates the psychologists who carry on spouting with the evidence of little Johnny and his parents apparent hardship.  I listened to some of these shysters on All in the Mind on radio four the other week and was amazed by some of the new terminology they came out with for well understood conditions they were trying to repackage.

Didn't the bloke who originally invented/diagnosed/recognised ADHD admit on his death bed that it was a load of crap invented to sell drugs?

I never believe the "he said it on his death bed" thing.

theres so many people who say that about well known athiests etc always suddenly repenting to god on their death bed

I dont think you do. Actually im pretty sure you dont.
 
EDIT
So i just looked at the DLA (Desabled Living Allowance) website. If you child has ADHD AND Learning Difficultys. Then they qualify to apply for DLA. ADHD on its own dosnt qualify you for DLA.

I was diagnosed with it it as a kid. Found it very hard to concentrate and keep motivated on things and generally struggled with school even though I was alleged "genius" level intellect then i found sport around 9/10 years old and that helped focus things never had drugs or anything like that for it. I was never naughty though just hyper active. Guess I still am when i get excited working/talking about things and projects I can skip from A to D without the middle parts makes sense to me but leaves others in the dark lol. 
 
I also think its partly shaped why I behave like I do in terms of a professional capacity and in my personal life.
 
Its a bit like depression at the moment its a culture thing where imo the people who really need help are having their issues dampened.

You may be 50% right, but there are very genuine cases.  My lad has always been 'hard work', but I would like to have thought that, despite relationship break-ups, he's had very good parenting.  Indeed, he is a good, polite lad.  But only 3 years ago he was diagnosed with ADHD (he's 16 now) and, with professional help, it's made things easier.
 
He struggles at school, but now has help so is missing out on less.  He does things like walking around the house while cleaning his teeth.  He has to be told to do things one thing at a time.
 
So, maybe in these cases you refer to the kids are indeed ADHD, but their behaviour is bad due to bad parenting.  You get a hyperactive child with good parenting, he's going to be told right and wrong and be occupied, you have one with bad parenting and he's going to be a little ****.
 
So, my point is, when it comes to criminal behaviour, ADHD is a moot issue.

Ian you're not in the northwest then I can guarantee you that.
Hundred percent certain you get benefits for being diagnosed ADHD . The fact you have ADHD means you can claim as you will find concentrating at school difficult so will not progress as fast. Happy to be taken to task on this I know real life examples not just websites saying xyz
Ian do you mind if I ask the demographics of the school/area you are working in.
Low dem/mid dem:high dem area?

Nowadays anything that deviates from the average the slightest bit is a "condition". It used to be common sense that people aren't all alike, that all kids are different and some are just more energetic than others. Now there is such a thing as "too much energy" and they pump them full of drugs to mellow out.
 
There's also the fact that parents don't take responsibility for their kids any more. When a kid was "hyperactive" and his hyperactivity became annoying to other people, his parents would just smack him to settle him down. Worked like a charm and the kid learned a little thing called impulse control, which is only what separates us from wild animals so no big deal if kids grow up without it. Now irresponsible parents have a free pass to not care, when their child is picking up another customer's bread on a restaurant they can just nod and say "he has ADHD" and apparently that solves everything.
 
Given how eliminating the concept of ADHD would force parents to take the time and effort and properly educate their kids, and hold them responsible for their children's shenanigans, it's only natural so many people would cling to this and want it to be seen as a legitimate medical condition.
 
Also, while not so much in Europe, in the USA it's fairly common for parents to try to get their kids diagnosed with ADHD so they can score ritalin prescriptions (for themselves).
