I work with a lot of kids on drugs, I see it everyday, I see how it is prescribed, I talk with counselors, I can only say the whole drugging your kids
up is BS.
THE SOURCE ... parents, not all of them, but most of them suck. a lot of the kids i come across are single parent kids, and for most of the kids life
he/she has gotten exactly what they wanted because they have learned to manipulate the single parent, the problem starts when they start school and
they don't get things the way they want them so they act out. one thing leads to another and you have the school your child attends asking if you the
single parent have considered putting your child on this drug or that drug to help them.
THE PROBLEM ... do you realize that a lot of these drugs were meant to be prescribed by a psychologist? the problem is doctors are not psychologist
are they, yet they prescribe this junk like candy. i can give you a wonderful example of just how sad this situation is, a couple of weeks ago i took
a kid to the DR, the DR asked if what he had prescribed was working and the child said no, the child stated I think I should start taking this and we
need to increase what I'm taking now...the DR went along with it no questions asked. I was speaking with the child at a later time and he stated to
me, you know I could have told that DR anything and he would have prescribed it.
THE SOLUTION ... maybe people should learn how to be parents before they have children, that could help. Did children in the 50's have adhd? hell no
they didn't ...why? Maybe the answer starts with the home, unfortunately some homes today are ran by children and not the parents or parent.
THE TEST... I spoke with a psychologist about a four year old on adhd drugs, he stated that's kind of young, i said yes i know and i told him that i
have never had any problems with the child. and his reply was that the child is not adhd, and that adhd kids show some adhd traits all the time, it's
not just turned off. so i did some test when my child had friends stay the night, three of the children's parents had spoken to me in regards to
having there child put on adhd drugs because they know i work with children. i stated well let's try an experiment. when the child would come to my
home i would clearly expalin the rules, what was allowed and what was not allowed, i never had any problems out of any of the three children that came
here on three different occasions. why is that? did i give them structure? did i make sure they knew what they could get away with? did i let them be
kids and get a little wild from time to time (kids are hyper are they not?). the parents were shocked that i did not have any problems.
