1 in 10 US kids are ADHD

I know the issue is real but is it this real or is it just the easy way to parent?

We have a some friends that have a child that is supposedly ADHD. The kid bounces off the wall even after being medicated. He takes something in the morning to control the ADHD and then takes another pill in the evening to sleep. He can't sit in class and walks the class room and hall. He is always disruptive and looking for attention. If we have them over for dinner we always make it an adult's night so they don't bring this kid.......

That is up until hunting season. This kid knows he has to sit quietly in the stand or his dad will not let him come on the next trip. He has no problem what so ever sitting in the stand for 6 - 8 hours.

I know this is a case of poor parenting.....I am just curious how many more are out there.



1 in 10 kids in U.S. has ADHD, new study says - Health - Kids and parenting - msnbc.com

ATLANTA ó Nearly 1 in 10 U.S. children has ADHD, a sizable increase from a few years earlier that government scientists think might be explained by growing awareness and better screening.

ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, makes it hard for kids to pay attention and control impulsive behavior. It's often treated with drugs, behavioral therapy, or both.

Re: 1 in 10 US kids are ADHD

There aren't any ADHD children that can't be cured.............. with a severe beating with a belt.



And yes, I'm being very facetious. Let's see how many people jump in and agree though.

Re: 1 in 10 US kids are ADHD

There is a very distinct difference between ADD/ADHD and bad parenting.

I was a full time martial arts instructor for years, and taught hundreds and hundreds of kids from ages 5 and up. It seemed like 1 out of every 3 parents that brought their kids to me for the first time would tell me their child was ADD/ADHD, and some of them were medicated.

I took courses to learn about ADD/ADHD and how to recognize it, and how to teach children who suffered from it. Out of all those students I had over the years, probably 2 or 3 were truly ADD/ADHD. The rest were a result of piss-poor parenting.

My ADD/ADHD students were actually very good kids, and excelled in martial arts.... although at times they struggled on memorization of forms (patterns) and certain skills. But overall they were very well mannered, and enjoyed getting some of that energy out in a way that was constructive for them.

As for the other kids, they had terrible attitudes, had problems with authority, and were very undisciplined. I also had many opportunities to observe the parents and how they interacted with their bastard children, and it was obvious that they just let the kids run their lives. Those parents used the ADD/ADHD excuse to get out of proper discipline.

It's actually fairly easy to distinguish between a kid who has ADD/ADHD, and one who simply lacks parental discipline. Honestly I think that ADD/ADHD is overly diagnosed in too many cases, and too many kids are medicated when they really just need a good spanking every now and then. It sucks for the kids, because the ones who don't suffer actually are very sluggish and hard to get any mental stimulation going. The kids who actually do suffer from ADD/ADHD and take medication, behave normal for the most part, and still have their wits sharp and ready to go.

I still agree with you but I prefer a wooden paddle. And perhaps I'd want to change it to "almost every".

If only those who knew what they were talking about replied, this thread would still be on page one.
