Should Kids with ADD (attention deficit disorder) take pills?

February 9, 2007 5:46am CST
i Work with kids and a few of them told me that they have trouble focusing because they have not taken their pills ot that their pills have worn off. I feel it's wrong that kids should be taking Drugs for ADD. I think ADD is overhyped and kids With Lots Of energy just need to go outside and play or get involved with other activities - NOT Take pills to sedate them. I think their extra evergy can be used to constructive things. What do you think Is ADD a real disorder? Should kids be taking pills for ADD?

When you get punched, kicked, bit, spat at, and your hair pulled at work because of ONE 6-year-old boy who has ADD, then you'll realise he needs medication.
