Schools pushing for kids to be put on ADD/ADHD meds
Last year I took my 7yr old son to get tasted because of his school.The 1st docter who had never seen my son before stayed in the room for about 10 min, than percribed my son ADD/ADHD medicine. The next day I took him to his regular docter and he said NO WAY !!! I never told the school I didnt put my son on any medicine. Two weeks later I got a letter in the mail from the school telling me how much improvement they see in my son sence he got on his medicine.The rest of the school year was fine. In the begining of this school year everything was fine.I told someone who worked at this school I thought I could trust this story. Then the next thing I know, here comes the notes from the teacher telling me how my son acts up in class, wont do his work, wont set still. You know, all the signs that say my son has ADD/ADHD . So now there doing the SST on him again. In April we have our conference meeting and Im wondering what there going to say when I refuse to medicate my son. Because I know that is what there going to want me to do. I wonder how many other parents have had this happen to them. Parents read up on ADD/ADHD and its meds before you num your childs brain just so the teacher can be happy. Did you know that alot of the meds we are giving our kids for ADD/ADHD kills the parts of there brain that makes them creative . Thats SAD. Get second oppinions . Isent your child worth that ? Mine is and Im so glad I did.
