Q:

My 4 year old son has ADD, he is not on any medication and loves p[laying video games.  Is this bad for him?

Could this be the reason he has problems holding a eating utensil? He holds it with his palm down and entire hand around it.?

What the Expert Says:

four year olds should have a limited time on digital media regardless of the condition.  Children with ADD like video because of the constant scene changes every few seconds--it keeps them focused but does not teach them skills. Try reading a few pages at a time with him or working personal skills.Wayne Yankus, MD, FAAP
