Individuals with ADHD exhibit behavior that is often seen as impulsive, disorganized, aggressive, overly sensitive, intense, emotional, or disruptive.  Their social interactions with others in their social environment -- parents, siblings, teachers, friends, co-workers, spouses/partners -- are often filled with misunderstanding and mis-communication.

Those with ADHD have a decreased ability to self-regulate their actions and reactions toward others.  This can cause relationships to be overly tense and fragile.

The topics in this section address some of the particular relationship issues faced by individuals with ADHD and others in their lives.
