I heard about it, but I'm kind of skeptical about things like this. I feel these days most people are too quick to diagnose and medicate, and only treat symptoms instead of causes. It's a sad and slippery slope. The doc 'The Medicated Child' is really good, and I recommend anyone watching it.

i dont think its actual DEPRESSION so much as its sadness for some children that they cant be with mommy you know?

I'm skeptical of it too. That's why I posted it on here. I get the NY Times on my phone and just skim read the article. I agree that we are too eager to medicate and not find the real problem. That a quick fix is all anyone needs.

True... I can already see my DS give fits about going to school, he's almost 5 months and already hates me leaving for work.
