ADD

:shock: This is so retarded when you have msn.com tell you three signs u're child might have ADD. Inattention all kids are inattentive..why do you think the teachers stress to us..please give so and so u're undivided attention :!: Impulsiveness Kids are learning the world through trial and error, and sometimes have to learn the hard way the consequences..just because they don't tell you what they plan on doing doens't mean it's impulsive, they've pretty much thought it out at one point. Hyperactivity All kids are hyper!...its all that sugar and caffeince they're parents give them, thats why the candy is always marketed towards kids!...if you have ants in u're pants...then stop playing atop the ant hill.

The most obvious cure for this, is more attention from the parents, help their kids lead an active life wether it be sports, hobby, or art...just something to look forward too. And discipline, i guarantee you if you punish a kid right, they would think three times before they act impulsive again :shock:

Societal net-weaving

Yeah Bob, I hear ya. Unfortunately it's kinda like the trend that repeats itself too. Back in the early 1800's there was a "cure-all" around every corner with men & wagons to follow, and all too quick to prescribe their snake-oil regime for everything from headaches to broken legs. Oh wait, it's still like that today. Just this era they have changed from wagons to corporations, and the men are hired guns from pharmaceutical companies with books open to pages and pages of "studies & clinical trials" which support their claims. The problem is, they need illnesses to cure, and the easiest way to create them is to change the name of one that already exists, or take a common behavior and make it unpopular.

Anyway, that's how I see it.

Yah basically, they've just given up on our generation, we're all bad kids in the eyes of the media, teens never amount to anything, only sometiems valued when they reach adulthood. So instead they just contrapt a disorder for everything, so it will allow for their parents to just basically give up on their kids siblings, and resort to medication...when...other natural methods could be used.

Well....

Maybe we could stage a "healthfest," ya know..make all the popular attributes of todays behavioral trends kinda like a Lalapalooza or something. Yeah, see...a bunch of kids, and I mean a bunch...get together under the guise of a concert and instead sit around and talk politely, open doors for each other, pass the salt & pepper to the left, use napkins, say "excuse me," do homework, etc....

After that, every red-blooded American parent will support future concerts...and we'll reintroduce the "real virtues" back into the kids a little at a time. Maybe it would thwart medical fixes long enough to break the fad.

I forgot what it was like to feel as though I identified with an entire generation. Wait till you get a bit older Bob. Thats when you begin to feel a self that is seperate from every one and everything. Hopefully that time is sooner than later. cause believe me: there are soem f'd up people in your/our generation.
