Thread: i in 5 boys have ADHD?

  1. i in 5 boys have ADHD?

    Headline – “ADHD on the rise: 1 in 5 high school-age boys diagnosed with hyperactivity”, folks that’s 20%. You can Read the whole article here: ADHD on the rise: 1 in 5 high school-age boys diagnosed with hyperactivity | Fox News

    Here is what I think is going on with this bogus story. Since the Gun Grabbers are attempting to stop us all from having firearms, but continue to run in to resistance at every turn, it is unlikely they will get much done. Now think about this. All indications point to mental illness being a large contributor to many of the mass shootings in our Nation. Many people including the NRA and others are saying any new gun laws need to address the mental illness issue. Well guess what, I think the government is coming up with the bogus “1 in 5 boys has ADD” as an avenue to work to get the supposed disorder classified as a mental illness thus effectively eliminating anyone who has been diagnosed with the disorder from every being able to legally own a firearm, which based on the governments statistics would stop at least 20% of the male population in this country from ever being able to own a firearm!

    Some Doctors already are hollering foul but it might not be enough. We all had better watch this one real close before it gains much ground.

    Sorry. Not buying the whole ADHD thing at all. I believe that it has all been made up to get our boys to sit still and act like girls in the feminine schools they're forced to attend. My son, like all boys, was fidgety as all get out when he was young. Once he figured out that I was NOT going to stand for it, and once he figured out what I was doing when I started to warm my hand up on my jeans, he stopped. EVERY TIME. It's discipline that's lacking. NOT drugs. THe whole thing is a sham. </rant>

    Perhaps we could look at improving our diet to get rid of some of the increase in ADHD

    From Tom Naughton's Fat Head - good movie, I recommend it.

    We've been scared away from perfectly healthy animal fats that have kept us healthy for millions of years.
    We've scared man away from saturated fats (which help to produce testosterone) and now we take viagra.
    We've scared parents into giving kids skimmed milk while their brains are growing and now we have kids that can't concentrate and take drugs for ADHD
    The experts convinced us to switch to highly processed and completely unnatural fats that cause inflammation, weaken our cells and make us sick
    Rise in heart disease and obesity clearly about one thing, carbohydrates.
    Grains only naturally consumed by one animal group and that is birds

    Okay. It's time to get off this ADD train and say what's really the issue with high school boys. High school boys have ONE thing on their mind all the time. Since there are ladies here, I won't say the common word...suffice to say it's the opposite sex.

    The "fact" that only one in five high school boys has the affliction is a definite lower number than when I was in high school.

    BTW: They couldn't name my school Lincoln High School because he wasn't even born yet.

    The symptoms that are used to describe ADHD are a joke....ANY second grade boy could fit the description, lack of attention, not listening, careless mistakes, disorganized work habbits, forgets lunch, not following the rules, fidgeting,running or climbing excessively, difficulty being quiet or playing quietly, always on the go...Sounds like every kid I know. I am sorry but not every kid is going to sit quietly and concentrate and be a model student. Teachers need to suck it up and realize that their job requires effort and little johnny will calm down as he matures, just like my kids did.

  8. The problem is that far too many parents and most teachers don't want to be bothered with actually raising or training kids on how to act in public.

    It's far easier to declare that a kid without 'proper home training' (as we refer to it down South) has a "condition" and just medicate them into little quiet zombies than it is to actually raise them.
