we are a race, people, generation that is poisoning our youth! Recently I was reading children as young as 2 are being prescribed Ritalin! W.T.F? At 2!? Children are not being allowed to be children - the moment they act out - by that I mean being a kid! The are labeled difficult and prescribed a dumbing down medication ! Medications that cause serious side effects- long term addiction - and even death. Take one hour and educate yourself by watching either Doc. - The Marketing of Madness or Generation Rx < can be seen on Netflix. Illegal drugs get all the attention as prescribed medications abuse goes un-noticed and casually given to our children. SHAME on teachers, parents and Doctors! Is your child out of control or perhaps they just need some attention. It is a fact that 20 years ago they got more attention naturally - why- because we did not have the internet! Well we did - just not as rampant as now. Life over all is busier but now we have to twitter and Fb and surf and blog. I know how much time it takes me daily and realize if Storm was little I would not have enough time for 1/2 of what I do on the computer.
I have a friend with 3 young kids all under 6, and I have noticed that she posts all day - posts her game levels- pot farm accomplishments, plans for the evening.. all the while I wonder what are the kids doing? How much attention can you possibly be giving your kids. FULL attention. Instead many parents choose to medicate their children - plop them in front of the T.V. and go about their busy lives. You may think that's fine now. Wait 15 years.
Teachers who suggest - stick to teaching!! Unless you are going to care for the child 24/7- how dare a teacher make such a suggestion that will affect a child on such a level for the rest of his/her life! Dr.s who prescribe for children - KNOW the facts. Perents who think it would be easier for them if their child was on Ritalin -
EASIER FOR WHO? (see toon below)
BEFORE you try a prescribed medication - TRY LOVE - LOTS of LOVE and attention! YOU brought them into this world! LIVE UP to their expectations! These little miracles of life need our love and attention and others to speak up against such crimes!
IT is a CRIME . Please share.
