This video brings a very important message that hopefully could make everyone more aware of the present conditions that little children are going through.
It starts with scrolling text that reads, “I asked two children the same questions. Both children are six years old and in the first grade, but only one of them has ADHD. Can you guess which one?”
This video has two interviewees: a confident-looking young boy and little shy girl. The children give identical answers for the first few questions but have different opinions to question regarding school and friendships.
The little boy shares that he likes school because he likes to “play with [his] friends at recess,” while the little girl tells the interviewer otherwise. She timidly shares that she does not have many friends and that it makes her feel “lonely”.
The little boy continues to share that he often gets invited to parties and doesn’t experience bullying at school. Meanwhile, the little girl shares that she is “sometimes” bullied and does “not usually” get invited to parties.
The children are then asked if there’s anything they dislike about themselves. The little boy answers with a solid “no”, but the little girl uncomfortably admits that she can be ‘bad’.
At the end of the video, it is revealed that the little girl is the child with ADHD.
The purpose of the video is to bring awareness about the following: ADHD is a neurological disorder. 5% of children between the ages of 4 and 17 have ADHD. Children with ADHD often have low self-esteem and poor social skills. Children with ADHD are often excluded from social gatherings.
“All children deserve and want to be loved. Please be aware that not all disabilities are visible. Educate your children about ADHD and teach them kindness and compassion.”
