OK so we went to the kids parent teacher meetings last week. I was wondering has anyone else heard of this. Or is it that schools are trying to medicate everyone in them. First, to start off every child learn the same right, NOT! wrong.
Let me tell you about my youngest child.She can read some of my 6 graders things and shes also a child that can, Go to her room and read for hours. She'll practice her flash cards to the point it makes my middle child sick.Well because the middle child still needs to count her fingers when adding or subtracting. So my youngest has a lot of conduct problems at school.
Basically i think when she does her work she gets cranky and start doing anything.The teacher and I talk often about different ways we can manage this. However this is the email she sent me after conferences. She told me that she spoke with the school counselor and believe that my daughter has ODD(Oppositional Defiant Disorder) and she could benefit from some medication. What how crazy! what are your thoughts about this issue.
