Children with ADHD often have more social and emotional problems than other children. This is true for all subtypes of ADHD and for both boys and girls. Children with ADHD may behave aggressively, have poor conversational and social skills, be anxious or depressed and seem quiet and withdrawn. These “problem” behaviours are not intentional and are part and parcel of the disorder. Children with ADHD often have trouble regulating their emotions, or controlling emotional reactions.
