Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD

By Marilyn Wedge Ph.D.

In the United States, at least 9 percent of school-aged children have been diagnosed with ADHD, and are taking pharmaceutical medications. In France, the percentage of kids diagnosed and medicated for ADHD is less than .5 percent. How has the epidemic of ADHD—firmly established in the U.S.—almost completely passed over children in France?

Is ADHD a biological-neurological disorder? Surprisingly, the answer to this question depends on whether you live in France or in the U.S. In the United States, child psychiatrists consider ADHD to be a biological disorder with biological causes. The preferred treatment is also biological—psycho stimulant medications such as Ritalin and Adderall.

 It’s easy to feel like your failures are bigger and more permanent than everyone else’s failures.

I would know. As a high school senior, I was rejected by 10 of the 13 colleges I’d applied to—and as I looked around at all my friends, who were heading off to schools like Cornell and Columbia and Yale, I couldn’t help but feel like the least impressive, least intelligent, least promising person ever.

There was a lot of crying and wallowing. But after a couple months, I forced myself to move on so I could focus on enjoying my college experience and getting started on establishing my career.

Two years later, more than 800 of my articles have been published in places like Forbes, Business Insider, Inc., USA TODAY College, and The Daily Muse, and I’ve already gotten a couple job offers for when I graduate next June.
