Hi PN

Although stimulants may be very helpful for some children, it is the exceptionally high useage of stimulants in certain parts of the US which concerns me. I find it bizarre that such a large number of young children are prescribed psychiatric medications.

>my 11-year-old nephew's class of 25 kids, I know there were about 4 on psych meds.

When I was at school, I never even heard of anyone taking a stimulant! Weird how things are so different. By the time I was about 15, I knew a couple of people who took SSRIs (as well as me), both of them had serious problems.

>When I was a kid, we had 15 minutes in the morning, 30 minutes in the afternoon, and most of 30 minutes at lunchtime to go outside and run around and yell.

We had 15 mins in the morning, 60 mins at lunchtime, and another 15 mins in the afternoon. At high school we had 60 minutes lunch but no other breaks.

Regards

Eddy
