Many parents panic when they are told that their children need Ritalin or some other form of medication. They don't have the knowledge or confidence to challenge those in the white suits!
In this 3 hour talk you will arm yourself with all the information you need to make an informed decision as to the best course of action for YOUR child. You will find out why so many children are being medicated and what other options are available.
Are you aware of the number of children now on severely mind-altering drugs? Did you know that the fastest growing market for both Ritalin and Prozac is pre-school aged children? Why is nobody looking into the underlying causes before medicating? How can we possibly be diagnosing preschoolers with ADHD? Do you even know what the actual criteria for diagnosing a child with ADHD are? Would you like to know? Would you like to know why 3 times as many boys as girls are prescribed Ritalin?
In a quick-fix world we need to be careful about the messages we are giving to our children about what is normal and what is not. It is not normal for a preschooler, or even one in early Primary school to be able to sit still for long periods of time and concentrate on things that they have absolutely no interest in. It is normal for kids to be enthusiastic and energetic and driven to fulfilling their own highest priorities (namely play).
I’m not saying that there are no kids with genuine disorders in their brain chemistry who may benefit from some assistance, but we have to exhaust all alternatives before reaching for pills.
Before you drug your children, investigate the side effects and dangers, and find out about the alternatives. Before deciding that your child is definitely one of the few who genuinely needs medication, start by researching the alternatives.
We’re talking about serious, scheduled drugs here – on the same level as Cocaine. You would not just give your child cocaine because someone with a white coat told you to. There is absolutely no way that the number of kids now on Schedule 7 drugs really have a disorder. Think about it.
Go and do your research, or save yourself some time and come to this talk. I have spent months now looking into causes, alternatives and solutions for hyperactive kids. I feel passionately about this subject and the fate of our children. Let me broaden your perspective; let me shed some light on some issues that your healthcare provider may not want you to know; let me offer you some hope.
