Photo of sleeping son helps mom see 'red alert' that could cause her bad behavior
Experts have discovered that Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder can be confused with certain behaviors when sleeping.
Childhood is an electric age in which both the mind and the body are truly unstoppable, but when all that energy is out of whack, some problems may arise.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects millions of children around the world, surprising parents who have not the slightest idea that their children suffer from this condition that usually gets them into trouble at school.
Melody Yazdani is a mother who has had to experience the supposed condition with her 8-year-old son, Kian, who since last year has been receiving school reports due to problems with the child's behavior, according to Mirror.

THE TRUTH REVEALED WITH A SIMPLE IMAGE
However, a photograph gave hints of what could actually be happening with Kian; the revelation was so great that she posted it on Facebook to tell the parents that this information would change their lives.
According to Yazdani, her boy had no problems in kindergarten but was very surprised when the teacher told her that her child has problems controlling his body, after having seen him pushing other children.
The red alert for Melody was seeing Kian sleep with his mouth open, meaning he was not breathing through his nose, but through his mouth, which turned out to be the answer to all of his doubts regarding her son's attitude.
"Children should not breathe through their mouths, not while they are awake, not while they sleep, never," Yazdani wrote in her social network media.
"When a child breathes through the mouth, his brain (and his body) does not get enough oxygen." At night, this low oxygen saturation is detrimental to the quality of sleep and the ability of his brain to get enough rest," she added.
THE SOLUTION CAN BE MUCH MORE SIMPLE THAN IT SEEMS
The mother said that some experiments with children with medicated ADHD showed that when the problem of breathing during sleep was solved, they showed an improvement in symptoms and in six months 70% of the children were no longer medicated.
"As in, his 'ADHD' was cured because it was not ADHD, in 70% of the children," Yazdani stated, adding "This means that 70% of those children had been misdiagnosed with ADHD, when they actually had a treatable sleep disorder."
The woman had to diagnose her son herself because according to information from The Stir, Kian was actually suffering from sleep apnea and sinusitis, nothing to do with the supposed disorder that requires constant medication for infants.
So wrong was the diagnosis of ADHD that as soon as the child was operated, immediately his mother began to notice changes in his attitude. No more tantrums, no more compulsive obsessive moment, it was just like another child. It was a 180° change.
"Here's why I'm sharing: Nobody, in my 12 years of being a mother, never told me anything about this," Melody said and concluded: "All the signs were there, right in front of our eyes, and I had no idea".
Doctors have a huge responsibility when treating people, especially children. A wrong diagnosis could be the end of a life.
Terry family suffered a similar heartbreak when their five-year-old daughter, Kycie Jai Terry, was misdiagnosed.
