Kids with ADHD more likely to be bullied than be bullies themselves.

So the MSNBC headline screams “Kids with ADHD more likely to bully”. One would think, “Oh, looks like kids with ADHD are the bad guys.” However, upon reading the article, you would find that although kids with ADHD are four times as likely to be bullies, they are 10 times more likely as other kids to be the victim of bullies.

Here’s my suggestion – how about the press focuses more on the fact that kids with ADHD are 10 times more likely to be bullied?
