From time to time all children will exhibit any or all of the above. However, if you feel your child exhibits this behaviour most of the time, rather than by exception, your child may have "inattentive type" ADHD. If you have ruled out other reasons for your child's behaviour, it might be necessary to have your child evaluated by a trained professional.
