Focusing on the general (not the individual - because it is not my place to judge whether individual children need medication)

 

Why do so many children and teens need medication????


There is a battle of two wolves inside us.  One is good and the other is evil.  The wolf that wins is the one you feed.

 

Book and herb loving mama to 1 preteen and 2 teens (when did that happen?).  We travel, go to school, homeschool, live rurally, eat our veggies, spend too much time...

The link worked for me.

I am a big believer in taking a hard look at the possible side effects before taking a medication.
