Are you completely against drugs like speed, and thing’s to that nature? If you are why are you giving them to your child? You’re probably thinking that is nonsense but in reality it’s not. If a doctor diagnoses your child with ADHD it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re child needs to be put on medication. I say this because it is a proven fact. Kids are affected by this because it haves many side effects like sleeping disorders, lose of appetite, makes you eat more, and some even have suicide reactions. Over, 60,000 people have died from ADHD, and anti depressions over the years. My point is that you are giving your child drugs and possibly creating more problems for your child. Make a change and take your child off of medication and try something new, anything but drugs. After a month or two and things still aren’t working and you ran out of options then decide if you want to put your child back on any medications. Don’t get your child hooked on to ADHD or ANTI DEPRESSION pills because you can’t afford it meaning you can’t give back a life. I say that because these pills are slowly killing people and they don’t even know it. Make a good change it might be a decision you won’t regret
