    But many doctors are allowed by parents to over medicate their kids.

    I like to call it "babysittter in a bottle"

    Guess what, Medicaid pays for a lot of these drugs for kids, like 100% if the family qualifies....


    A lot of parents are manipulated by teachers and doctors into allowing their kids to be medicated. The schools are not always subtle about energetic kids-instead of sending them down to the janitor to help him for a bit (like they did with unruly boys in my day), they tell parents that unless they have a doctor see the kid and assess him for medication, the school will evaluate him for special education and give him that stigma.
