Reminds me of this Dribbleglass billboard.

Or as I heard a guy say on a talk-show, "ADD is 'absence of discipline disorder', and the Nuns at the school I went to could generally cure it a just a few weeks".

For a kid to have lots of energy is no longer considered normal but he is now hyper-active and naturally needs to be “medicated” to calm him down.


I seem to recall how that was dealt with when I was growing up, we had something called recess.

LOVE IT! LMAO

I agree, 95 percent of it can be cured with a good ass kicking! When I was in 6th grade we had 2 classes of 25 kids each ONE was on Ritalin and he came from a bad family environment

It seems like parents nowadays are just looking for some kind of medical/emotional condition to be wrong with their child. Then of course they are very trusting and will follow any advice given to them by school officials and their pediatrician, filling and changing prescriptions and doses as recommended.

When I was a kid, I knew to respect my elders, behave in school (or the nuns would give you a slap or wrap on the knuckles with the ruler), I even remember kids being taken out of the class to the spanking room and coming back crying.

I never needed to be physically disciplined by my teachers, or put on medications. My mother's attitude was, that if I ever did get a physical discipline in school, then I deserved it, and I would get another once I got home...worked for me!

There were high energy kids in my classes, but as you say, they burned some energy off at recess or in gym class.

I remember when I first went to first grade (We didn't all go to kindergarten back then), my dad told me if I got in trouble at school I would be in trouble at home. The first day of school, my teacher showed the class her paddle. If a kid got too far out of line, the teacher took them outside the classroom, closed the door and "paddled the child." Not "beat," but gave the child two or three "whacks." The most common problems were talking to our neighbors and chewing gum. I don't remember one child being on meds for ADD, ADHD, etc.

Oh, and about what my dad told me. He meant it and I never got in trouble, except very minor things, at school.

Discipline and being taught respect really does work.

Lightbulb But wait, there's more.....................

Quote:
Fortunately, the Swiss National Advisory Commission on Biomedical Ethics (NEK, President: Otfried Höffe) critically commented on the use of the ADHD drug Ritalin in its opinion of 22 November 2011 titled Human enhancement by means of pharmacological agents: The consumption of pharmacological agents altered the child’s behavior without any contribution on his or her part.That amounted to interference in the child’s freedom and personal rights, because pharmacological agents induced behavioral changes but failed to educate the child on how to achieve these behavioral changes independently. The child was thus deprived of an essential learning experience to act autonomously and emphatically which “considerably curtails children’s freedom and impairs their personality development”, the NEK criticized.
The alarmed critics of the Ritalin disaster are now getting support from an entirely different side. The German weekly Der Spiegel quoted in its cover story on 2 February 2012 the US American psychiatrist Leon Eisenberg, born in 1922 as the son of Russian Jewish immigrants, who was the “scientific father of ADHD” and who said at the age of 87, seven months before his death in his last interview: “ADHD is a prime example of a fictitious disease”

I have absolutely no faith in the psychotherapy profession. I think there are a lot of made up diseases and ADHD is just one of them. I've read quite a bit about side effects of many of the drugs patients are treated with and from what I've read, the drugs can bring on more of the same "symptoms" as the condition they are supposed to be treating in some people.

I taught Head Start for a while and had one boy whose behavior was quite disruptive. He was diagnosed with ADHD and given Ritalin. His mom hated what it did to him and so did I. He was well behaved alright, but seemed totally "Out of it." His mom came to me one day to ask how his behavior was and I told her. She said it was the same at home, so she only gave the drug to him when he came to school. I told her it was up to her, but I would be happy to deal with his non-drugged behavior rather than have him the way he had become. She seemed very grateful and took him off the drug.

I think everyone could be diagnosed with a psychological disorder at one time or another during their lifetimes.

My brother was diagnosed with ADD at age of 14... my family was shocked at how quickly Adderall was prescribed with very little investigation at all. Thank god my parents didn't agree with this and instead took the much, much harder road of cleaning up the diet, and eliminating processed foods, and other junk. This actually WORKED! But believe me, in this modern society, it is difficult to clean up a teenage boy's diet. You almost have to take him off-grid! But, in my opinion, the FIRST option should be to eat clean food, however difficult that may be these days.

My son had a very violent behavior when he got mad he would bite and fight everyone. I done some research and found that there where allergies that would cause this. We done a pulse test to look for allergies and could not find any. Then I came across a list of mineral deficiencies and found that deficiencies in chromium can cause ADD/ADHD, anxiety, depression, diabetes, fatigue, hyperactivity and learning disability. I gave my son this mineral and the change was dramatic he now is still a energetic boy but not vicious

I believe that it has to do with the chemicals in the food ,the chemicals in the atmosphere, and the amount of vaccinations children are given these days,as well as mineral deficiencies.
We have a grandchild with Autism and one with Aspergers, and their problems are real, thankfully their parents dont believe in treating their kids with drugs ,and are getting specialised teaching they both have decent parents.
The childrens problems started to appear after vaccinations and the parents are doing everything possible to minimise the effects.
I would like to know why the government subsidises help for children with these problems if it is not chemical poisoning by vaccinations, 1 in 50 children are suffering with an Autism spectrum disorder
here in Australia.

You can tell the difference between children with a spectrum disorder and normal children.
children with a spectrum disorder will always speak the truth, take averything you say litterally,
notice things and talk about things that normal children wouldn'even give a second thought about,a lot of them cant stand loud noises,hate having their routines changed,and get very frustrated and angry,because people can't understand their way of thinking, which is totally different to normal people hence the violence, they also have,sensitivities to certain things like clothing and, food.
You may notice when you go shopping somtimes some infants crying their eyes out ,it is most likely the noises in the shopping centres and the lighting.
our grand son hated to go to the toiletsin sbopping centres as he couldn't stand the noise of the hand dryers,hates having his hair cut because of the noise of the scissors and clippers.
I ask you th o think about these things when you go shopping and see what you think is a child being naughty for no reason.
