I would never think that my 8 year old daughter Jessica has ADD but lately I'm wondering. She seems like a normal child. Active? yeah... too much?? I dont know... I think every 8 year old child is a little bit too active comparing to what their parents would like them to be. I always said kids are kids. Every kid is like that. But now after over a year looking at Jessica's bad grades and seeing her struggling with her homework I'm thinking I might be wrong. Last year she was struggling and had to go to summer school but I blamed that on our recent move and me being so absorbed with my 5 year old who was diagnosed in January with Leukemia.This year they are both in the same school and I thought she would pick up but no. I read and read and I checked the symptoms of ADD and she has almost every one of them. I don't know what to do. My friends and family always told me that I'm tough when my five year old was in and out of the hospital. But now I'm really worry. I feel so bad for Jessie and it breaks my heart to see her try and fail. I know I should take her to the doctor and have checked but I guess I'm just fooling myself by saying shes just a kid and she will grow out of it. I dont know what to do.. PLEASE HELP
