Nearly one-tenth of all school-aged children in the United States are being coerced into taking mood-altering drugs with side effects that include insomnia, tearfulness, rebound irritability, personality change, nervousness, anorexia, nausea, dizziness, headaches, heart palpitations, and cardiac arrhythmia. These are the children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit with hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Ritalin Is Not the Answer confronts and challenges what has become common practice and teaches parents and educators a healthy, comprehensive behavioral program that really works as an alternative to the epidemic use of medication-without teaching children to use drugs in order to handle their behavioral and emotional problems.

Review 1 for Ritalin is Not The Answer: A Drug-Free, Practical Program for Children Diagnosed with ADD or ADHD
This is an excellent reference. It goes over what works and what does not work with ADD/ADHD children. The author's presentation of reinforcing good behavior is excellent and right on. If you apply his techniques - you will see a marked improvement in behavior.
It seems we cause most of this behavior by the way we treat our children and discipline them - we're actually reinforcing the behavior we don't like or want our children to display. This is powerful. Get a hold of this concept and implement it.
I think it should be a crime to drug any child, especially when the alternatives are so clear and easy to implement. If you try this and it doesn't work, then drugs may be an option, but to drug a child should be the last resort.
