Yeah, but “immature” just doesn’t bring in the big bucks.
I’ve had ADHD my entire life....
I’m outta here...
“I don’t know what to do, doctor. My boy acts like such a child!”
Toss in excess sugar in the diet of most kids as well.
A lot of them are just kids!!!!
“ADHD is vastly overdiagnosed and many children are just immature, say scientists”
They need more extracurricular access beyond futbol.
I wanted to do something to help kids with ADD but I lost interest.
Uh oh. This will cause panic in the liberal crowd. Unmedicated children?? They might have to actually be PARENTS and work at raising civilized, educated, disciplined children...
If you can't handle your kids, don't make them. People walk their dogs every day--at least the responsible ones do...
Uh no. Kids are locked in prison cells all day learning how they are destroying the planet from homos.
And that medicine physically alters their brains for the rest of their lives. It is pure evil.
Kids need discipline and some butt whooping, NOT drugs.
How about bringing back recess and letting boys be boys, instead of forcing them to be girls?
NO ####ING ####!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
really!!!! restless boys!?!?!?!?!?!?!?
we were were all @@@@@ing angels when we were kids.
except for lighting a fire in my garage, ripping knobs off of doors and seeing the neighbors curse..i’ll stop there.
Modern day boys are often fidgety and distracted because genetically they need a lot of activity. Not many of them live on farms or ranches where they have chores and other lively activities and spend too much sitting in school and at home in front of computers and TVs.
Lack of exercise often causes lack of ability to concentrate and thus they get this diagnosis.
Naysayer. It may be an over used diagnosis but there are medical and psychological tests that confirm this condition. If you have raised add or adhd kid you know the hallmarks. My question—are add or adhd adults birthing autistic children? A further mutation.
Adult laziness and incompetence followed by faux-educated denial. There are kids more easily driven to distraction, some physiologically, most by a plainly mad culture of over-stimulation, spiritual neglect and the horrible triumph of “progressive education” experimentalism.
I am glad I didn’t grow up today. They would have had me medicated so fast it would make your head spin.
Sigh. Some kids are smart. Some kids are dumb. Some kids are quirky. Some kids are weird.
Some kids are all of those rolled into one. But everyone has to be categorized in some way. There is an excuse for everything.
