I so totally disagree with the OP, and I don't believe the OP is such a great parent, and I truly think he should think about how his actions are affecting his childs emotions. (I guess this is the closest I got to flaming someone)
I was a kid with undiagnosed ADHD, and dear Lord my life was no picnic. I used to watch the Brady Bunch when I was little, and I sure wished that my life could be like that. I tried as hard as I could to listen and be good, but I always seemed to fall short. My mom was dysfunctional too, and that didn't help. It's just flat out painful to hear your own mother say "I went through hell and back because of you kids", and nothing you could do could make you be good enough or listen enough. I wish I could at least have tried ritalin when I was little.
