: Our middle grandson, 6, is becoming increasingly angry with siblings, and recently with parents and us - blatant defiance, spitting and kicking during any activity wherein he is asked to conform (eg. bedtime, etc.). His parents divorce is in process, but we have seen the progression since long before that. Lately, he seems comfortable talking about 'killing people' - usually younger brother, but occasionally adults too. Too much Pokemon exposure ? If ADD is diagnosed (he concentrates well, but seldom on his schoolwork), can Ritalin help the misbehavior, too ?
There are many different things that can cause behavior problems in children. Do not be quick to place your grandson on Ritalin which is a Cocaine derivative.
I recently became aware of how widespread the use of Ritalin on Children with behavior problems has become. There are other ways to treat this naturally. I would
be glad to share with you what I know if you e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I would be glad to share the information with you for
alternative treatment, that does not put the child on drugs. No charge for information.
