Social problem that teenager face as a result of dating
Interacting successfully with peers and significant adults is one of the most important aspects of a child’s development, yet 50 to 60 percent of children with ADHD have difficulty with peer relationships.
Over 25 percent of Americans experience chronic loneliness.
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.
Unfortunately, as adults, they often realize “something” is missing but are never quite sure what that “something” may be.At first, these difficulties of children with ADHD were conceptualized as a deficit in appropriate social skills, such that the children had not acquired the appropriate social behaviors.Based upon this model, social skills training, which is commonly conducted with groups of children, became a widely accepted treatment modality.Social acceptance can be viewed as a spiral going up or down.
Individuals who exhibit appropriate social skills are rewarded with more acceptance from those with whom they interact and are encouraged to develop even better social skills.
Such negative interpersonal outcomes cause emotional pain and suffering.
