Genetic if it affects your school see your doctor and see if you can get a prescription for something that will help with it. If not dont worry about it.

Genetics. My father has A.D.D. but he will deny it to this day... I have a few cousins with A.D.D. also on both sides of the family... But I'm the only one out of 10 grandchildren on one side to have it and one of two on the other side with 8. Just the luck of the draw with genetics.

Very sure it's genetic. I think it might even stem off aspergers..my dad shows signs of social deficiency and that is why my parents marriage was a wreck and they got divorced. It's genetic but you can also be born with it. Nobody TRULY knows how you get ADHD but it is NOT caught like a disease or anything. It only really shows though once you're about 3-6ish because before 3 your just a normal hyperactive toddler....doesn't make any difference in you.

Usually hereditary

It is partially genetic, but some of it can be blamed on outside causes. For example, it has been shown that there are links between Pesticides and ADD/ADHD. Therefor, even though I have some ADHD in my family, I blame it on Iowa. I spent almost a year there when I was a baby, and they're water was full of pesticides. So, while genetics to play a part, they're not the only cause.

Both of my parents are adopted but my uncle and one of my cousins (both on the same side) has add too so i suppose its genetic.

Its genetic.

It's usually genetic and has a strong tendency to run in families, though it can also have other causes. Some of the more common causes include smoking or drinking during pregnancy, low birth weight, frontal lobe injury as a child, or exposure to PCBs as a child. That being said, any environmental causes at unlikely to cause ADD in people who are not predisposed genetically to it.

ADHD is normally hereditary. Sometimes it is also due to the circumstances that the mother has been put into while the baby is still in the womb. You can never really tell. Instead of thinking how you caught ADHD, it would be better to think of the ways in which you can alleviate your condition. Music Therapy is one way to heal yourself.
