Hyperactive kids and getting checkups
Yeh, ritalin is dope and it does have a behavior/mind altering quality. It is suggested by teachers, who are supposed to be authorities in the subject. Since my son's first grade teacher in Montgomery County, MD, spelled Ameruca as you just saw it, well, you can imagine how much weight I gave to her opinion.
It is convenient to have a child in class who is zoned out. It is less convenient to have a kid who is bouncing off the walls.
So shoot me.
My kids had to learn to deal with their own difficulties. It wasn't easy for them or for me or for their classmates/teachers/administrators. But it happened.
Right now I am posting very short pieces because of a situation I'm having to deal with. Sorry 'bout that. My ex has assisted breathing for pneumonia contracted while having a tumor removed from his brain. Yep, I'm staying offline so the phone can ring if I'm needed.
And I hope that if you don't now get regular checkups for colon cancer, you will start now. Because this started as colon cancer, then went into his lungs, and the latest is the brain tumor. Please get checked. Don't let things go until you are messed up.
