Perhaps your child has been diagnosed with ADHD.  Hopefully before you let the school district stick a label on him/her, you as a parent did your homework. That label sticks to your child forever, and that's not always a good thing.

A parent should also be concerned about the medications that are used on ADHD children.  Check those out too.

Many children are just shy or nervous or anxious around other people.  Perhaps your child has spent way too much time in front of a video game player or the television set.  Perhaps your child has not been disciplined properly and simply has a difficult time following direction because she hasn't ever had any! Perhaps your child has not had the opportunity to just play with other children in an unstructured environment and so does not have interaction skills that have developed over time.  Perhaps your child is actually very smart and is just bored by what is going on in his classroom. All those things can create symptoms that mimic those of ADHD.
