Hi there! Honestly, I understand you and your parents. I haven't heard of ADD before, I just read an article about it. I read that there are more different types of ADD. Well we can all recognize ourselves in characteristics like inattention, easy distractibility, disorganization, procrastination, forgetfulness, and lethargy (fatigue), there are also the symptoms of hyperactivity or impulsiveness, do you have all those? Your parents might not understand it because it's a quite "new disease", so they've probably never heard about it. Do you have a psychologist in your school? Maybe you could talk to him first about the problem, maybe he could help you find out the solution, maybe he could help you persuade you parents. Maybe it's not the ADD what's causing it. I read that there's a treatment for the Attention deficit disorder. The therapy consist of medication and behavioral therapy which is recommended to improve organizational skills, study techniques or social functioning. Keep trying, I can only imagine how it feels... Talk to some psychologist about this behavioral therapy. Good luck! :-)
