Personally I don't feel half the children on meds for it really have it. I'm not saying that they are not real conditions and I know that medication is necessary in SOME situations.. but these days every time I turn around I see another child being drugged. So a child likes to run around like crazy.. how about trying to find activities to let them run off that energy. So they don't pay enough attention in school and don't grasp the concepts as easy and fast as others... why not try tutors or one of the million programs they have to help. I know a couple mothers who IMO have their children medicated simply cause it makes them easier to deal with. Am I alone in this way of thinking?

I think pediatricians can be very irresponsible when prescribing medication. They should never prescribe meds after one office visit and a parents description of the child's behavior, yet I see it all the time. Then the medication isn't monitored properly. When you see a doctor handle it correctly it's a very extensive process.
