We are so quick to jump on the easy ADHD diagnosis. I, too, did it. My
husband also is very quick to blame PMS whenever I am angry with him for not
doing what he had promised to do for several YEARS!
How about just ending all these "labels" and deal with each kid as needed. I
still believe in "spare the rod, spoil the child."
I am sure I will get "killed" on this, but, be that as it may, I am tired of
all this newfangled parenthood while 12 yr olds are getting pregnant, doing
drugs and murdering people. What those kids needed was a good stiff kick in
As an aside, does "reasoning" really work? My sister and her husband tried
that angle with their first-born, only to discover that he was 50% deaf!
Speaking only for myself (before my tongue is pulled from my mouth),
