Are too many kids medicated?
Today kids receive medicine as if it was lollypops. Parents and teachers are looking for the quick fix – something that will keep their children quiet, focused and controlled. The doctors are more into prescribing rather than researching – none are considering the common sense solution that is NOT a chemical solution.
Who is the big winner – the Drug companies! We can clearly see that their advertising works cause we all enslaved to the media.
Giving medicine to a child makes us feels as if we care for our child, as If we are doing something to support him, we put a lot of money in medicine for our children – is it real support? Do we even start to understand the manifested system design that took over our life and our children lives?
It is not a secret that psychiatric drugs can be dangerous and cause harm to a person. The side effects are vest. It is not unlikely that one would abuse the drugs as they are easily prescribed nowadays by doctors and psychiatrics.
So what is wrong with us? We are those that allow our children to experience stress and pressure, we are the ones that fear letting them express themselves, we are the ones that tie their hands as we limit their play time and wanting them to be more indoors than outdoors – all we want from them is to be good at school, to achieve good grades to ensure their future success, to get married and bring children of their own. When they have done all of that, we feel that we did our share in life. how screwed up is that?!
Stop and smell the coffee – the medicine exists not because it is supporting you or your child but because someone can make money out of it. You eat the shit the media feeds you, Instead of taking responsibility and investigate the education system, the world system the family system, to investigate whether it is supporting your children.
Why are you so easily drug your child? You drug them so that the teacher won’t call you at work and ask you to take your child home because he is making a mess in class. When your child is sick, you give them antibiotics. Why? Is it because you truly believe that it what’s best for the child or it is your own self interest as you want to go back to work?
