People with ADHD seem to lack self-discipline. In a way, it’s true. The self-regulation or ‘stop’ signal is not strong. The part of the brain that has you stop and consider consequences is not firing properly. Or at all. The result is impulsivity. The ADDer interrupts, gets distracted, misses social cues, gets up and moves, and, ‘doesn’t do what they’re expected to do,’ when that expectation is to sit still, shut-up, pay attention, and listen. No kid wants to do that. ADHD & ADD kids can’t.
