Do you agree with giving kids drugs for things such as ADHD or bi-polar etc.

Why do you agree or disagree?

If they need it, yes, but only after non-pharmacological therapies have been tried, and only if the child truly needs it, not just for mom and dad or teachers comfort.

Sure I do. I also believe in giving Tylenol for pain and chemo for cancer. It's a medical condition and should be treated as one.

Ehhhh. Yes, I believe it is fine but I am not too crazy about stimulants for children regarding the ADHD part.

You think that ADHD and its drugs are on the same level as a cancer patient and their treatment?
