Way too young to jump on the psychological issue boat... sometimes a kid is mean spirited and ill behaved just because of the age, and can't think of the golden rule to treat others as how you want to be treated yet. I'm personally strongly against psychological diagnosis to be set in stone for so young. So many kids at school and at my workplace are drugged up and they really don't need to be...

Not saying that you can't take someone so young to a psychologist, but usually the case is you have to keep it up and nothing's all that confirmed until they're an older age anyway (like 8-10). You just keep it in mind that psychological issues *may* be a possible reason why a kid misbehaves... but 5 is just too young to blame it solely on ADHD.
