Day 26, Sunday: Something you read online. Leave a link and discuss, if you’d like.
I found this super interesting. Let me start this out by saying I don’t want kids – I am not parent material. I do not have the patience for children. So I am by no means an expert on parenting but I am a keen observer. I definitely think that Americans are very quick to label things (ADHD, ADD, “fibromyalgia”, etc.) and I think they want the label so they can get a drug to “fix” it. I also think that the junk kids (and even adults) consume is a HUGE contributer to behavioral and health problems in America. I would just encourage parents to look into other options before they give their children medication for behavior issues – unfortunately medications often have side effect that require more medications.
