    ... the system will always push medicating over therapy/assistance because it is so much easier (and cheaper... uhm... more cost efficient). That is one reason why we as parents and family members MUST advocate advocate advocate!!!

    When I see pictures of Tea Party events all I see are 60 somethings, when I see pictures of Occupy Wall Street all I see are 20 somethings... attrition is our ally.

    •  I am now dealing with my littelest. (4+ / 0-)

      And putting my foot down about stuff. They are not going to get a label that will be detrimental to her.

      She's not at all like the oldest two, just some  mild speech delays and some behaviour stuff.  Also brilliant.  She doesn't take any crap, and just needs to channel that. As the smallest in a bizzy house, that is survival just to be heard.

      Right now she's a kitty cat.  (Ears and a tail I made for Halloween.)

      Heh. I have a 21, 19, 6 and  a 7 yr old.
