Attention Deficit Disorder

Author: Paulo Coelho

One of my friends in myspace mentioned that her child has Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD). It is funny because the first time that I heard about it was from Nancy, an American myspace friend who came to Paris to meet me. According to Nancy, you put a child in a room with several toys, and IF the child does not get lost, she does not have ADD.
I can garantee you: I would be immediately diagnosed as a severe case because, being a child (and even as an adult) I pay attention to everything and nothing.
