Why french kids don’t have ADHD

This article examines the difference between American and French educational styles.

Super brief synopsis: When it comes to the treatment of ADHD, French child psychiatrists view ADHD as a medical condition that has psycho-social and situational causes. Instead of treating children’s focusing and behavioral problems with drugs, French doctors prefer to look for the underlying issue that is causing the child distress—not in the child’s brain but in the child’s social context.
