Let the flaming begin...


No flaming from me, either. I have 5 grandkids who are active/creative/imaginative/on-the-go. The 3 in the Public School System have been deemed ADHD and are on drugs. The two who attend a Parochial School are kept challenged and active and have been taught to mind their manners. They are NOT on drugs. These 5 are my "posse" and as Chief Grandma In Charge - I can assure you - they're all equally frisky and fun. I just run them hard, is all Wink

But I have noticed that the vast majority of kids' TV programs/movies race along at a frenetic pace. Something loud/funny/crazy happens about every 15 seconds - and I think kids get used to this pace?? So "regular life" probably seems painfully slow and boring....

I heard on a radio talk show, that the rate of ADHD in Amish children is ZERO.

Pretty much. DSM originated as a diagnostic tool, and it's become a diagnostic bible, and it's definitions have become broader and broader.

To a choleric melancholy, sanguines are mentally ill and should be medicated.

To a choleric sanguine, choleric melancholies are mentally ill and need psychotherapy.
