dc.description.abstractDespite extensive research into attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), parents' constructions of their children's behaviors have received limited attention. This is particularly true outside North American contexts, where ADHD is less established historically. Our research demonstrates how United Kingdom parents made sense of ADHD and their own identities postdiagnosis. Using discourse analysis from interviews with 12 parents, we show that they drew from biological and social environmental repertoires when talking about their child's condition, paralleling repertoires found circulating in the United Kingdom media. However, in the context of parental narratives, both these repertoires were difficult for parents to support and involved problematic subject positions for parental accountability in the child's behavior. In this article we focus on the strategies parents used to negotiate these troublesome identities and construct accounts of moral and legitimate parenting in a context in which uncertainties surrounding ADHD existed and parenting was scrutinized.
