    Nothing to worry about w/his ADHD. There are LOTS of folks w/that. I have a granddaughter & her dad also has it. There are lots of medications available for it & it's nothing to worry about. The medications w/help regulate his thinking & he'll be fine. It's kinda like his mind is speeding & going in a lot of different directions & it's hard to focus on one thing at a time. Not to worry, just have him go see a Dr. & he'll be fine. Best to you both. Everything w/be OK…
