What exactly is risk-taking behavior?

Recognizing risk-taking behavior

Risk-taking is more than just dangerous behavior like underage drinking or driving too fast. For a kid with ADD/ADHD, any behavior that shakes things up can qualify. Starting an argument, excessive lying, or getting into fights are all examples of risk-taking behavior, as is purposely getting caught doing something wrong. The punishment later is well worth the thrill now.
