I can't believe people would rather throw pills at their kids for having ADHD etc, rather than explore the issue.
My brother is 23, and when he was in primary school, the teachers all thought he was a trouble maker because they couldn't get him to sit still,
couldn't get him to stop talking to the other children during directed learning time etc. Turns out he was just vastly under-stimulated. In Year 2,
he was finishing his work before all the other children, leaving him bored, so they made him start doing maths work for older children. It was
challenging him and thats what he needed.
No pills, no counselling, no therapy.
We've come to an age where people are putting their children in pre-school or nursery, or leaving them with child care providers as soon as they are
able. In the UK, some places take children from less than 6 months old.
Parents are just strangers to their children these days, so when they try to discipline them, the kids are like "WTF, who are you to tell me off?"
and so the parents are walked all over.
It used to be that a family could comfortably live on one parents wage, and one parent would stay at home for the kids. Now both parents need to work
to be able to cover their mortgage or rent and bills. And so people are palming their kids off on strangers.
Strangers aren't allowed to discipline kids, so who's doing the parenting?
