Allow me to clarify, many response's are suggesting that Im cruel, and haven't identified this this kid has issues ( ADD). As I have stated on a
And btw, ADD is a psychological disorder, just curious what else may be compounding that issue~
Take note in the last part of that sentence; " just curious what else may be compounding that issue".
that would further suggest that I believe that there might be some deeper issue, that has yet to be identified.
Further, I firmly disagree that the police had any grounds to intervene. Its not a crime to draw a picture, this is granted to us by the First
Amendment, which I stated earlier.
This child has a diagnosis of ADHD
I clearly identified that I acknowledged the pre-existing condition of the child. I'm not saying, nor have I said that he didnt have this
Nobody said this child was normal in the sense that you are proposing. However, he is not abnormal in the sense that you are proposing either.
I haven't noted anything in regards to this child being normal or abnormal. I suggested that his behavior, which is entirely different as being
questionable at best. Further, I suggested that maybe there were some deep routed issues, that may require his " sanity " tested. But I never
specifically called this kid out, or labeled him a "retard".
believe you may be conflicted.
Not all, I have been stating the same thing repeatedly. If you must, please feel free to review my posts.
ecause of your comments I do not think you are not an educator and have never worked with students with diagnoses, IEP's, shadows and the
therapeutic/ psychiatric community or CPS. If I am wrong, forgive me.
Actually, I taught children from ages 5-9 for many years. Not as a teacher in a classroom, but a side program for about 6 years. And currently, my
g/friends youngest son whom is 5, and clinically diagnosed with ADHD, I think with actual hands on experience on a daily basis, would suggest I have
knowledge in this category. ( No offense taken, I appreciate your insight )
but also cruelty
Not cruelty, by any means......as I have said over and over, i hope the parents can identify the child in questions issues, and he can live a long and
happy life, but I don't believe this child should have been arrested. It wasn't the place of the LEO's to take " command ", nor was it the place
of the educators to pose their " will " either.
As a side note, reflecting back in my younger years, I honestly don't recall drawing pictures of this type...I was too busy chasing girls~
