One of the Reasons We Home School

Attention Deficit Disorder is a very real condition that has been around for a long time, but only recently has been labeled. One of our children has been diagnosed with ADD and the others are pretty rambunctious too. The problem with the education system is they tend to medicate children like this to "calm them down". This TED video explains why that may not be the best thing to have done in the past, to do now or to do in the future. This video is right at 19 minutes long, so be sure to set aside some time to view it. Be sure to take a peek though! It's well worth the look!
