I have a 4 1/2 yr old great niece I believe has ADHD. How can I know for sure and how do I approach her mother. Andrea

Does the mother herself suspect anything? Is the child in preschool at all or a situation outside of home, where it shows up? Personally if someone else came to me in my family and suggested that, if i didn't think it were true, I might end up a bit mad at the person suggesting it. So you have to be pretty careful with this. What makes you think she's ADHD, and does her mother have concerns as well?
