by: Warren Whitfield – Most people today are forced to put their children on Ritalin in order to keep them in school. Schools threaten parents with expulsion if they do not put their kids on the drug. What most people do not know is that for at least 10 years now, drug companies have been doing presentations in High schools to teachers and to the school principles, convincing them that Ritalin (amongst other drugs) is the easiest and best way of ensuring desirable behaviour in children. They actually convinced teachers to let go of the responsibility of managing a child’s behaviour, and to let the drug do the work for them.
If you were an underpaid teacher with an over populated class of under disciplined (managed) children, what would you do to make your life easier? Especially if your job depended on ensuring that your pupils achieved higher marks?
What modern medicine (Allopathic Medicine) does, is treat symptoms. It is not the study of treating causes. In fact, doctors misguidedly now tell people that ADHD is “genetic”.
