Bullhockey. My mother had ADD (she had  a pair of earrings--one said IN the
other said OUT), I and my older sister have ADD, my younger sister has ADHD,
my nephew has ADHD (and is about to become an Eagle Scout, go Jesse!) and of
my five boys, three have ADHD. My father doesn't have it, nor do my husband
or either of my BIL.
Interestingly, though, my younger sister was quite a handful at times when
she was little, and neither of her kids have it. Seems a bit unfair.

We're the textbook family for ADD/ADHD being passed on through the maternal
side of the family.

The question that pops into my mind then becomes:  Does the case study
support biochemical/genetic or social learning models of "transmission"?  I
suspect that Okam's Razor leans a bit towards Social Learning in this case.
Still seems to be a lot of support on both sides of the proverbial dinar.
