So this has been a hard topic for me. I don't know how or who to turn to. I have some mixed feelings on this subject. So, lets start at the beginning! My daughter's new counselor diagnosed her with ADHD. Now, I'm not saying that adhd doesn't exist okay. I just think its too easy nowadays to say oh its this, give them pills. What happened to good ole' fashion parenting? Its too easy for kids to get away with shit nowadays! And now they say oh its because they have this disease. When really its because they're spoiled with no consequences to speak of since the system has given them the power and taken it away from the parents. Now, don't get me wrong. I know that there are real dirt bag parents out there and that's why we need the system, but damn all's a kid has to do nowadays is cry abuse and BAM you have the system on your ass telling you what you can and cannot do! How to live, shit, eat and sleep! I mean for crying out loud, get a damn clue. Anyhow, sorry, now I'm off topic. 

So her counselor wanted to give her meds and of course I said no because I know that there are other options out there. She hesitated, then admitted that as their diets are not proven it could help, but that to give her coffee to sip on throughout the day. lol Yep, you read that right. Coffee! Well, hell to me that's WAY better than giving her meds. So we are on day 3. Haven't really seen a change. So I've written a letter to all of her teachers asking them to once a week at least, to email me any changes if any. Since that is where she is for most of her day. 

Honestly, though, it's her just using the fear and the system to get her way. I don't know. Any advice?
