Study shows higher divorce rate in ADHD Families

Posted Nov 17 2008 9:03pm

A new article at GreatDad.com reports that a study by the State University of New York, Buffalo claims to have found a link between having a child with ADHD and higher divorce rates.  The study claims that:

23 percent of these moms and dads had ended their marriage by the time their child had turned eight.

In comparison, among parents who did not have an ADHD child but had similar backgrounds, only 13 percent of marriages had ended in divorce by this point.

It seems that this is a Dad-centric thing.  So apparently more fatehers are ending the realtionship than mothers?  The suggestion is to get more involved with sports and your child….  So cliche.

I wonder if this is an intentional stereotype or if American men are simply conditioned to associate sports and togetherness?
