Free Northerner commented regarding drugged children – vis-à-vis attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
We went bowling with another couple and their three kids this past Saturday; we brought our two children along as well. The experience was less than perfect, as are all experiences with five children in tow, but it went about as well as could be expected. Among things discussed was their decision to place their eldest child, a girl, on Adderall to combat the effects of her behavior attributed to attention deficit disorder. My thoughts were exactly those of Free Northerner, plus one more: the parents chose to ease their lives rather than ease the life of their child.
