You have probably heard horror stories of kids that are drugged to the point of being zombies because some teacher said they had ADHD and couldn’t come to school unless they were on medication. The child was too busy, too loud, disruptive in the classroom. The child was unable to learn even the most basic life skills, so how could he possibly be expected to tackle academics?
But how does medication help a child to settle and to focus? Is it possible?
And why on earth would a doctor prescribe stimulant drugs for a child who is already hyperactive?
What does it feel like to be that child? What must those children think of their parents, years later when it’s their choice to make about taking medication or not?
If you are interested in hearing the answer to that question, watch this video made by an adult woman whose mother put her on ADHD drugs when she was a child.
