The drugging of our children proceeds apace

AP reports that spending on drugs for children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and other behavior disorders is skyrocketing. The last three years have seen a 23 percent increase in usage among all children, but a 49 percent increase among children under five years of age.

This really makes my blood boil! I'm sure they have a pill for that as well.

The drugging of children in general is bad enough, but the increased drugging of preschoolers is a moral outrage, and in many (if not most) cases a gross dereliction of parental responsibility.
