here`s a song for everyone,society by eddie vedder

Yeah and sticking labels on adults is just as wrong. Psychiatrists have personal biases that affect the way they diagnose the patient and unfortunately this diagnosis sticks with the patient wherever they receive treatment. And trust me, when a nurse or doctor sees "ADHD" or "bipolar" they automatically suspect a problem patient and the care they receive will not equal another patients care. <br />
<br />
Just because something is not our society's "norm" (which is really quite abnormal) doesn't mean it's a disorder. SHEESH. I agree with you guys. It's messed up!

I'm With You! Slap a label on the child, then put him/her on drugs! It's an abuse on children that should cause every parent/guardian to become incensed over.<br />
<br />
Please, go on amazon.com and buy this book called "Who Shut Off My Brain" by: Dr. Caroline Leaf <br />
<br />
Here is a small excerpt from her book-<br />
<br />
"Next, the information pours into an almond-shaped structure in your brain called the amygdala, which stores the emotional perceptions that occur each time memory is built. In other words, every time you build a memory, you activate emotions, because the endocrine system has to release the chemicals necessary for building of memory (toxic or otherwise). Memory and emotions, like body and mind, are inseperable. The inside of the amygdala is like a huge library that stores all emotional perceptions you have developed while building memory from the time in the womb until today as you read this information.<br />
<br />
'An example of this in practice: if you had a math teacher who shouted at you and said you would never be able to do math, you would have stored that memory in a part of your brain called the cerebrum. Thereafter, every time you do math or anything related to the subject, you will re-experience the negative feelings of shame, hurt and fear because all "math" information first passes through the amygdala, activating the "library" of negative toxic "math" feelings. It would be as if you picked up the book that says "I can't do math; I am scared of math..." This makes the math experience a negative one. Not surprisingly, thereafter you will struggle to learn anything new about math, because the negative feelings inside the amygdala literally block the learning process. <br />
<br />
The emotion you feel from the amygdala is reactive and strong enough to control and even override any inherent positive elements that there may be in a thought. There are more connections going from the amygdala to the cortex than from the cortex to the amygdala. This ensures that the amygdala dominates and controls the cortex, preventing your natural reasoning from exerting its influence. <br />
<br />
Therefore one of the coping mechanisms you can develope to detoxify your brain invoolves not responding immediately to emotions you may feel strongly. Rather, acknowledge what you feel, and if it becomes clear an emotion is toxic, you can begin a process of learning to let it go.<br />
<br />
The worst thing you can do for your health is to deny, block or suppress emotions, whether they are good or bad. This makes them extremely toxic. The process of detoxifying your thoughts can be likened to "putting the library book back on the shelf." If it happens to be a life-threatening book, you may want to get rid of it altogether, building a new and healthy memory over an old, sick one.<br />
<br />
Just as toxic chemicals are released when the amygdala reacts to a memory negatively, so are positive chemicals released when a memory is positive. <br />
<br />
In general, the purpose of the amygdala reaction is to prepare the release of chemicals for memory-building.<br />
<br />
There is far more in Dr. Leaf's book - than my brief excerpts can afford you as a means to fully undersatnd and grasp what I'm trying to tell you here.<br />
<br />
Please, the book is under ten bucks, get it, and read it. You will not regret having done so. <br />
Teachers have got to stop labeling and drugging children.<br />
