Don’t Dose Your Toddler!

This is something I’ve known for a while.  Hyperactive kids turn out just fine, so long as you don’t drag them to a child psychologist while doping them up with Ritalin, Prozac, or a host of other personality-control drugs.

A small percentage of those diagnosed with ADHD actually need the drugs.  I’ve seen adult cases of ADHD and the drugs do wonders.  But I knew one child who was about 12 who was “depressed” so he was taking a few perscription drugs to even out his moods.

A depressed teenager!  If we didn’t have depressed teenagers, we’d never have the Goth movement!

And a recent study supports this idea.  Kids who are spazzes eventually stop being spazzes.  Anyone who remembers their friends in 2nd grade and compares them with their adult form, they’ll discover this is true.

It’s called maturation.  And it’s better than any drug.

Here’s a hint.  If you’re kid’s a spaz, spend some time with them.  Don’t ship them off to the shrink, ok?  You’ll discover they aren’t as mental as you though they were.
