For kids of good parenting to have ADHD its just an easy excuse for Why am i a good parent yet my child is still naughty?
I was thinking about whether a parent has good parenting skills from an objective view, not subjective. That is, if the opinion of those who are 'removed' from the family, i.e. health professionals, teachers etc can say 'the child comes from a family where there is good parenting going on' then it is less likely that the child has ADHD because of a fault with the parenting.

And you can never fully recover from a mental illness as lapses are far more likely to happen again and again.
Again, I disagree. I know on quite a few older people who have totally recovered from their depressions - and again, health professionals will disagree with you when you say that people can never fully recover - so my view is not only anecdotal but it is corroborated by fact.
