ADD & ADHD Diagnosis in Kids
The number of kids diagnosed with ADD and ADHD these days is insane. But it’s easy for parents to just accept these diagnoses since, to some degree, it’s an excuse as to why their kids act out so much.
But are these diagnoses always the culprits so many doctors and child care professionals claim them to be? I’m not questioning the existence of either. But I am questioning the huge number of kids falsely diagnosed as such.
