Study: ADHD mothers have children with more problems

The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts has publicised an American study which states that mothers who have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) have children with more problems.

In studying 60 mothers (with a comparison group of mothers without ADHD), the researchers concluded:

Mothers with ADHD monitored their children less than mothers without ADHD, and they were less aware of their children’s activities.

ADHD mothers were less consistent regarding discipline and provided fewer effective possible solutions for their children.

Mothers who were inattentive, as opposed to hyperactive, were even less effective than the ADHD mothers who were hyperactive.

The authors concluded that, “mothers with ADHD were less consistent in their parenting compared with mothers without ADHD. These results suggest that it is difficult to implement consequences for children’s noncompliance in a consistent way when a parent struggles with his or her own impulsive and distractible behavior”
