I know your intentions are obviously sincere but some of what you are saying unfortunately I don't agree with. To have an opinion that poohbaby has ADHD just by the way she types is ludicrous....maybe that is how she has been taught or learnt how to type?
I have no problem with people wanting to put their children on drugs and really believe that there is a time and a place for these, but it is just becoming too easy to say a child has ADHD and they need medication. To the point where teachers have now become experts and are putting pressure on parents to have their child medicated when they are not qualified to do so.
What I also have a problem with, is that everyone claims to be an expert on what is the best for 100% of children. If we were all the same, then this would be true, but we aren't.
I believe that if there were proper processes in place to have a child fully examined and checked for any existing medical conditions (heart and other organs), before the treatment begins and again prior to a repeat prescription being given, then feel that a proper informed decision can be made.
With regards to "diet" that you refer to, are you then saying that if a child eats sweets and fizzy drinks everyday of his life, that this in some way is not going to have an affect on the childs energy level?
