We just had the most positive parent/teacher conference EVER! I didn’t cry once this time! I was convinced my son was going to be held back or, even worse, “LABELED” with ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder or some other disorder that would be a struggle for us every day, including his ability at school. I was ALMOST convinced my son had ADHD or a learning disability... TODAY my son is MEETING EXPECTATIONS in every subject.
In the 1960s, giving six-year-old children psycho-stimulant drugs would have appalled society. Now, it’s as regular as taking a child to the park.
