Or for a teacher in school to ask the parent's to put their child on medication so that they won't have to work as hard to teach the child?
My friend just put her daughter on a pretty strong drug so that she wouldn't have to watch her in the backyard and so she could get somebody to babysit her so she could go out drinking (her daughter is 5 and autistic, but not low functioning).
My brother's son's teacher (he is 6 and in kindergarten) has suggested/requested that they put him on ridalin because he "talks over her" in class.
As far as I am concerned, my friend is a ass to give dangerous drugs with nasty side effects to her 5 year old just so she can have a social life. And my brother's son's teacher just doesn't want to do her job. When did a normal, healthy, talkative child become a mental illness that needs to be drugged?
It would be so much easier to parent kids if they were given benadryl all day and were so groggy they fell asleep in their food. It would be so much easier to get through the day as a teacher if your pupils were drooling over their desks. WHY does it have to be easy? A parent knows (or should) that their children will be difficult sometimes. A teacher knows (or should) that a room full of 5-6 year olds is going to get rowdy sometimes.....When did it become a "throw a pill at it " issue???
