DId you read the very first post?I did . This is about choices. If you get upset over other peoples posts,then theres something wrong,or is it that you feel guilty about your putting a pill in you childs mouth.In this life time there are to many kids on ritalin.That is a fact! That also means something is very wrong.Grandparent,have been around longer than we have,they are more wise they see changes taking place that they know are way off base.Your parents do they want to see there children giving there grand child,a pill for something they as parents were able to deal with.Wake up ! This is all about choices,no doctor tells you you must treat ADD or ADHD with meds.My child has ADHD.I have used meds on him.I felt there had to be a better way.I think our parents would have been able to deal with kids like ours.Im sure they have in most cases at least one parent has it.The child was born with it,they got it from one of us. Look at that 14 year old boy hes gone now ,god bless his sole.That boy had no choice.10 years from now the truth about Ritalin and other meds will all come out.I did not want my to end up like that poor boy.Get the facts on what you put in your childs mouth,I did.I feel I made the right choice.
