when parents use behavioral meds for their kids?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

what do you think about parents putting their grade school kids on behavioral medication. i personally think that too many times kids are being put on medication that aren't needed; and too many kids are being diagnosed with things they don't necessarily have. MIND YOU I DO THINK SOME KIDS NEED THEM AND HAVE LAGITAMET PROBLEMS! JUST NOT AS MANY AS PEOPLE THINK.

Don't judge parents when your not living their life and have no clue!

I don't think people should give their kids drugs to make them pay attention, or sit still.

I think first I have a headache trying to read that. And second, I am not here to judge what someone else goes through. Sure, Things are grossly overdiagnosed. And sadly, that puts a negative look on those who truly have problems and need the helpl. Spend a day in my house....you will see how my 10 year old is and how much he wishes he were a "normal kid" as he says.

 My youngest son is 9 years old. I have had to make him an appointment with his pedi because he can be a very angry child. He doesn't listen, screams his head off, will throw things, says he wishes he was dead, wishes he could run away, wishes he had different parents. On the flip side, when he has a good day, he's loving, affectionate, and helpful. Never gives me any trouble. He has trouble in school. His teachers say he's a good kid, but won't do anything. No punishments work. Even here at home. Now, are you going to tell me that's normal 9 year old behavior? I don't think so. I'm going to have him evaluated and if medication is in his future, we will definitely take it into consideration and give it to him if we feel it would be benefical to him.
