Parents of ADHD Children

3 Part Documentary follows 5 kids and families: diagnose ADHD

3 x 1 hour documentary about 5 kids from 4 families being disagnosed and treated for possible adhd with ODD/ anxiety. Title is horrible, stigmatising. It is Australian so hopefully youtube lets you see it.


From the beginning part that I have watched so far, it seems heavily focused on hyper active behaviors.  Which I find quite narrow and disappointing.  Although it doesn’t surprise me that they zero in on that particular aspect.  But still… quite disappointing.  And rather predictable.  Not impressed so far.  But thank you for telling us about this and yes I intend to watch all of them in their entirety.

The sensationalistic title is really annoying. It’s actually a reality show akin to Super Nanny, all but exclusively concentrating on extreme hyperactive behavior and ODD, showcasing the implementation of a behavior program such as the one described in Your Defiant Child. Does a good job emphasizing the importance of consistent quality parenting (and meds) in dealing with oppositional behavior, but doesn’t really even begin to scratch the surface of issues our inattentive, overly emotional kids with low self esteem face every day.
