I ran across this discussion regarding ADHD on Yahoo Answers and was encouraged. To tell you the truth, I have had a lot of children brought to me who were diagnosed with "ADHD", but I have never seen them manifest the symptoms required to meet the diagnostic criteria. I'm truly starting to question whether the disease even exists.
We, as a culture, seem to have a strong need to label our children as mentally ill and medicate them. This is a disturbing trend. I'm sure many will disagree with me but I have to say what I see, or don't see.
