Your neighbor is a 36-year-old male who has struggled with ADHD his entire life. His wife is pregnant and ultrasound has determined that they are going to have a boy. He is very concerned that his son might have ADHD too. What would you tell him?
a.   He is probably correct to worry, there is a genetic link for ADHD and boys are more likely to have it.
b.   He should worry, almost all children have ADHD today.
c.   He does not need to worry, ADHD skips a generation.
d.   Since his wife does not have ADHD the baby probably will not either.
