Parents of ADHD Children

Please take a few minutes to help a child like yours!

I’m a teacher with a terrific student who needs your help. Her family has struggled with many of the same issues I see posted here, and now she is trying to turn her experience into something positive. Please help her out - she is trying to make a difference!!! My name is Guido Garbarino and I teach Science Research at Mamaroneck High School in Westchester County, New York. One of my students is conducting a study in which they are interested in comparing the sibling relationships between siblings with ADHD and the relationships between siblings without ADHD. If you have one non-ADHD child aged 12-18 and one or more additional non-diagnosed children, please help us out by taking my student’s survey. If you click on this link, you will be redirected to her survey on Thank you for your consideration.

CORRECTION: The student research project described in my previous post is looking for parents of one or more ADD/ADHD children and at least one nondiagnosed child. The correct link for the survey is:


My children are too young for your study (5 and 8), but I’ll be interested in the results.  Will your student be publisher her results publicly?  Could you ask her to post to this forum so we can learn from her work?

I just took the survey, my 2 boys have had an absolutely horrible sibling relationship up until just 4-5 months ago when suddenly things changed like flipping a switch. I’m still trying to figure out what changed, part of it is that I think we finally got the ADHD meds right and things are *much* calmer than they were.

So—to parents out there struggling with this, don’t give up!
