>>>do you guys really think it's healthy to put pre-adolescent children on drugs that alter brain chemistry?>>>

Hey Jon, if you go up to a thread called, "Ritalin to treat depression"(around November 14) and read my post,"Re:Ritalin to treat depression(to SB)" you will find my specific response to using Ritalin. If you can't find it, let me know and I'll rewrite it for you.

As for your 2nd question, no I don't think it is a good idea to give this type of thing to kids. I keep reading stuff about how no one knows what the long term effects are happening in all those brains which are still developing. Also, alot of parents have kids, who don't really need it, on Ritalin. Instead of accepting the fact that a child might just have a very energetic personality and needs consistent disciplin(not punishment) these parents use drugs to keep there child sedated enough to toe the line. I would have to be facing very extreme hyper-activity if I were going to even *consider* putting my daughter on Ritalin. Hope your test went well! CarolAnn:)
