Serin Center

Children with ADHD and anxiety appear to experience more emotional dysregulation than their peers. While they experience the same emotions as individuals their age, they experience them much more frequently and intensely. They may be more likely to get stuck and caught up in their emotion due to difficulties with executive functioning skills and seeing the bigger picture.

There is a pattern of interaction between siblings that affects family function, is the cause for significant impairment or contributes to symptoms occurring in one or more siblings. Behaviors or symptoms include: recurring arguments and conflicts resulting distraction or preoccupation from daily life, avoiding contact with the individual who is causing the stress, threats of a sibling running away, a pattern of anger towards a sibling which doesn’t resolve because of a lack of conflict resolution strategies and parenting strategies or excessive jealousy between siblings.
