As far as ADHD goes, I am not convinced it is as much of a problem as they say it is, it seems more like an excuse more than anything. However, that
does not mean the problem does not exist to a much smaller degree.
I have ADHD to, by definition that is. My child did/does too.
When I was growing up, my ass got grounded, sent to my room, went to bed without dinner, no tv, no atari 400. What ever my parents felt the situation
called for is what I got. I learned very quickly that I am not allowed to throw a temper tantrum in the store when mommy would not get me a snickers
bar. I did not get a snickers bar for 6 months after that little stunt, and my ass was on fire.
Fast forward to today. My child was diagnosed with ADHD by, get this, his teacher. Who the hell gives teachers the ability to make medical decisions?
But, I took my child to the doc, and he informed me that my child did have ADHD to a degree. The doc told me to use discipline before we tried turning
him into a zombie. The discipline worked, I only had to get the teachers to do their job when he, as the teachers would say was "being difficult".
