Pharma does their job and collect their handsome salaries.

And today thanks to the giant supplement industry, parents can work with supplements for their children with these ants.
Kids have been medicated for ADD since at least the 1970s. The article by Barton Schmitt that the OP posted was from 1975.

Every word ever used for the mentally handicapped has become a pejorative, e.g. "idiot", "moron", "imbecile", etc. Look up the original meaning of those words.

Why does only America drug so many school children ?

Because Social Services will come after you if you give them booze.

Dairy Farm Boarding school can help reduce need for 'calming / focusing' drugs...

Of course there are legitimate medical needs, but... ACTIVITY to the point of exhaustion (24x7) worked pretty well for me. (I have never been a 'long sleeper' (Thank Goodness... )

4:30 AM and 4:30 PM 7 days / week, you knew precisely what you would be doing and where! Consistency / predictability is a good thing for those whose mind is ahead of their maturity.

LARGE animals that don't like to be disturbed and can crush you in a second... tend to tweak your 'attitude' real fast. After about your 300th one each morning you seem to 'learn' to comply . You always remember.. 4:30 is coming... TWICE a day you deal with these BEASTS!

Teachers seem to LOVE kids on drugs - doctors LOVE to diagnose them, and drug companies LOVE to have the RX's for TOXIC SUBSTANCES filled.

And parents who drug their kids are guilty of child abuse, in my book. I understand why they do it - cuz there is so much pressure - but it's just wrong.

You nailed it.
