If you dont have a child with adhd dont judge those of us who do. My son is 8 and has been on adhd meds since he started school. I dont want him on stimulants but this isnt about me. He has tried numerous non stimulant adhd meds and goes to behavior therapy. In school he still wasnt able to focus and do his work, he was constantly in trouble. He had to go on stimulants because that is what he needed. He now makes straight A's and is making friends. It isnt about me wanting him to be perfect, im not that selfish but i do want him to fulfill his potential and his medication allows him to do that. How dare you condemn us for putting our children on meds like this for ourselves or blindly listening to a shrink. We all try to do the best for our children and should not be condemned by someone who doesnt understand our childs needs.
