Lack of interest in reading or cuddling

Affection is often exhibited by children, though an absence of this activity could be indicative of a social problem or, depending on what the child is opting to do instead, could be a sign of ADHD.  If a child is so wrapped up in an activity that there is disinterest in social activity, you may want to contact your doctor.

Difficulty calming down

Yes, most children get excited.  Calming children down after he or she is excited is never easy, but there’s behavior that goes beyond the norm.  Though there is no definitive length of calm-down time that determines whether he or she has ADHD, it may be wise to monitor your child and discuss the findings with your pediatrician.
