1.)Psyciatrists are not (and never were) the brightest doctors. They were the dregs of the medical schools assigned to the asylums to keep the patients quiet and out of sight (so as not to embaress the patient's respectable and powerful relatives) and sign the death certificate at the apropriate time.
5.)Psyciatry that treats a minor without taking a good, long, hard look at his or her parents (because the adults are paying the bill) is prostituting itsself.
If you want to read some real horror stories about this prostitution, Google "Teen Gulag". (From the Utah location of many of these teen "boot camps" and the activities (pushing hand carts through the desert [Think of the Mormon Pushcart Migration]
I suspect that the Mormon church is involved at some level.)

Seriously though, a doctor RX'd ritalyn to my son when he was a fairly hyper 5 year old boy. My now X wife had it filled and wanted to give them to him but I through a fit and dumped them down the toilet.
Over the past decade, European chemists have been documenting widespread pharmaceutical contamination of their lakes, streams, and groundwater. In San Francisco this week, U.S. and Canadian scientists offered preliminary confirmation that traces of drugs, excreted by people and livestock, similarly pollute American waters.
Actually the reports claim that meds get into lakes and streams through excretion by humans and animals.
And this is how prescription drugs get into our water supply. Another reason not to drink, use or shower with tap water.
I hope I never meet a teenager who isn't rebelling against the status quo, or a child who doesn't have the energy of a hummingbird.
it's very likely that bright lights will be put out before they have a chance to change our world for the better.

I gotta say though that I hear a lot of complaining about pills being the problem and that doctors (especially shrinks) being stupid, school teachers being the chaff from the university wheat and so forth. I think some people really need to take some responsibility in their lives.

i believe that one cannot truly focus on something and divert all their energy to it untill they figure out what that certain something is. Since not everyone has the same exposure to eveything growing up it is understandable that some people may be restless if their energy isn't focused untill they have found what it is they are seeking.
