When my son was 4, he was “diagnosed” with ADHD and the Quack wanted to put him on Zoloft. This caused some friction within the family. The outlaws were all for it :) I was against drugs and wanted to take a more holistic approach first. We began to watch his diet and started him on “fish oil” DHA and a herbal supplement for children with ADHD. He is now 8 and has improved tremendously over the last 4 years (not my opinion, the schools). He is not perfect and still has moments. But these moments do not justify putting him on an anti-psychotic medication. The one incident that will always stick out in my mind is the time that my ex-wife gave my son at a deck of presidential cards ( he was about 5). Two days later, he had memorized every president. You could ask him, who was the 15th president, and he would immediately answer. he could name the presidents in order forwards backwards and alphabetically..

Sometimes just TLC can go a long way to solving problems.

The outlaws were vehemently opposed to my decision to homeschool. They were wrong, naturally.

They're your children after all.
