I had never been hyperactive; in fact, I am more on the opposite side of the spectrum. All it means is that I`m not able to focus as well. Certain people aren`t going to be able to concentrate as well as others. When it goes to the extreme, you get ADD.
Oh yeah... and f.uck you koala.
i know that was late but i thought i`d chip in.
i could feel the rage through my computer screen.
but seriously, give it a rest. you might hurt yourselves.
of course i don`t think that works when someone actually has ADD (a very rare thing indeed) i wouldn`t punish them for that.I just don`t like when people who have/are told they have ADD or ADHD use it as an excuse to not do or get away with stuff.
I HATE YOU CAPITALIST PIGS!
ok sure! theres no such thing as ADD! lets alter some parts of UR brain and see how u live ur life!!! I HAVE ADD AND I DONT EVEN EAT CANDY LET ALONE ANY SUGAR!!!! AND ITS MORE THAN JUST REFUSING TO DO HOMEWORK STUPID!!!! ITS THE FACT THAT TOSE ALTERED PARTS OF OUR BRAIN LACK THE ABILTY TO PAY ATTENTION!!! ITS ABOUT STAYING FOCUSED DUM *SS!!!!
yes i know that was kinda late...
Somebody who is lied to there entire life, will be eleive that lie to the death, there is no reasonnning with you, like there is no Reasonning with those Christian Turds.`
read again:`I was Cured of Dislexia`
also my little brother was told by the doctors that he had ADD. my mother just laughed. sometimes there aren`t smart people in the world, they thought he had it because he couldn`t read when he was 10. i went out and brought him a poke`mon book and VOILA now he can read b/c it interests him.
I`ll never visit a therapist again [I was forced in 6th grade..loathed it...] from the way there is often diagnosis of things that people never have..and I refuse to take medication. The doctors did not care about giving medication they knew would kill to my grandparents.
I was spanked as a child, and did what the hell I was told. It`s not rocketscience. Children need discipline. If you don`t apply it, you get nasty little children that do as they wish.
I got the lformer and I haven`t got a single detention to my name.
Of all things you`ve said how did you just come out and declared `ADD` real but not ADHD.. and why? Because YOU have been diagnosed with ADD but not ADHD?
Amidst the eighteen posts you made on this single page that was the most absurd. How are you going to call the kettle black, pot? Seriously?
MomnDad> Good point, thank you for phrasing it as you did. It`s important.
What the lot of the rest of you are failing to realize is that psychology (and therefore parapsychology) are soft sciences. They aren`t for sure yet, so we shouldn`t be so liberal in defining symptoms of disorders and mental issues or be diagnosing them so fast when we aren`t sure about treatment either.
For those of you `diagnosed`? I don`t blame you. I don`t blame your parents. I don`t blame the doctors. I blame all of society, and the longer you wait to challenge the concept the longer this
Oh, and OF COURSE the bible is fake!There is a proof for that called "science"!
Remember the days in which DSS didn`t arrest you for excercizing discipline? I miss those days. It turns out people prefer to raise little b******s instead of people who know the right from wrong.
Listen, I think that some people have these disorders (ADD or ADHD). But far too often I`ve seen these disorders used by kids to get away with stupidity. My kid came home one day and said he had ADD. I later found out it was because another student got away with throwing a tray-full of food at the wall. The discipline? "Don`t do it again." That kid hasn`t acted o
Long Live Lenin! (Dispite his Sudden Death) For Eastablishing an Actual Socialist Country that isn`t Communist!"long live? haha, its funny cause theyre already dead :-P
This whole world is f***ed up because of that mindset. OMG, Child Abuse! And OMG, I`m Sensitive to Religion! Next thing you know you won`t be able to say Merry Christmas without getting sued because of you freaks.
Spanking instills discipline for the kids that otherwise won`t listen. I`m not saying take them home and beat them every night, but it sure sets them straight when they`re really getting out of line. Pretty soon we won`t be able to put people in jail because it`s `too harsh`. Knock it off and think a little. It was fine fifty years ago and frankly, that generation has been the last of the good ones. Around me I see a bunch of irresponsible failures in my age group. "OMG, NO SPANKING." No spanking my @$$, pun intended!
I said most cases aren`t real, and are in fact people using an excuse to be a nimrod or kids just misbehaving and parents not stepping up to take responsibility. NOT ALL. MOST. There`s a difference if you could get off your defense and actually read what I wrote before you went nuts on me.
I was also stating pills aren`t the answer, of all things. You`re missing my point and thinking I`m saying it doesn`t exist. Most mental illnesses are subject to this debate and doctors fall back on them too often too quick- The real ones don`t get the treatment they need because so many are now being `diagnosed`.
Funny how those placebo treatments work about half as often as the real deal. Mind over matter. Good for you for getting past the pill part, now slow down and stop skipping my actual point.
Don`t get me started on the god thing
My parents only gave me and my siblings a smack if we were really asking for it.I wouldn`t have blamed them either since we really did deserve it sometimes.
Not when they don`t deserve it, I complain that the sponge is dirty and i don`t want to clean up a spill with it and rather use a paper towel and I get 2 or 3 smacks around the head, true story.
F*** YOU`S! *smack*
I`m 21 years old and i have A.D.D. it sucks i cant pay attention for example i will have some1 repeat something like 4 times until i can concentrate on what they are saying
I will admit I do not believe in a.d.h.d. because kids are suppose to be energetic i mean they should be with the obesity and all
I have taken pills (see my post on page 1) but I stopped. I still have to struggle with ADD but I have NEVER used it as an excuse. It just pisses me off that I have to deal with this disorder everyday and yet these people say "it doesn`t exist" "you`re parents didn`t discipline you enough" etc. Which is not the case.I`ve had to figure out a way to study, to work and to live differently then everybody else, and it requires a lot of self discipline. I do think kids become too reliant on pills and not reliant enough on ones self.
Mind over matter. Again, it`s not 100% all the time but there`s even more evidence that what we think will affect our physical being- In other words? Docs need to do more than hand out pills to ADD/ADHD diagnosed people and try other methods of control, first: Before they go telling kids and parents that they`ve got some disease that excuses their behavior.
When ALL ELSE FAILS after extended attempts, then maybe I`ll consider this ADD/ADHD thing. Same goes for depression. Pills are not the goddamn answer.
Pillhappy society where companies HAVE been known to make up reasons to make people think they need to take pills.
whats up with people over analyzing?
for Gods sake take it to a nett page witchgives a damn, the clip whas funny! LAUGH!
and go to www.igiveadamnaboutchildabuseandADD.org
However.. broadening the scope of thought here -most- mental disorders are pretty bunk if you ask me. I was studying parapsychology for a while and I think I`m one little symptom away from being `able` to be classified as schizo and add, and I do mean `little` symptom.
There `are` real cases, but they`re rare and -severe-. Temper tantrums are not cause to be ADD. It`s goddamn self control and discipline needed, not some pill that (as even the ADD people have confirmed) just jacks you over more than when you started.
Koala`s right. Told you`re ill long enough and you`ll believe it. Now it `is` real because you`ve made it real and there`s no overcoming it in your mind. You`ve closed that door.
Thank you South Park.
It is still my beleif, and the beleif of somebody who is quit close to me - who was treated for ADD - But admits she never had it and its all a scam.
Somebody who is lied to there entire life, will be eleive that lie to the death, there is no reasonnning with you, like there is no Reasonning with those Christian Turds.
ADD -ADHD Doesn`t exist, look into Homopathie, thats all I have to say.
Tell that to my parents who beat me silly, I still acted up, nothing could stop me.
"Recent studies have not shown a link between the consumption of sugar and hyperactivity levels, even when the researchers focused on children with a presumed "sugar-sensitivity". If parents and teachers believe in the possibility of a sugar-high, this may cause them to perceive children as more energetic and excited after consumption of sweets and sugary beverages through observer bias."
They arn`t real.
IF Somebody lies to you your whole life, then you are going to beleive it, Like God, Santa and hitler, they don`t exist.
I will say this: I think many of the kids who are now being diagnosed with ADD don`t really have it. It`s becoming an excuse, and that is upsetting to me, because now people aren`t taking it seriously and are doubting that it`s real...telling the kids who really do have it that they should just "try harder" again. Do you have any idea how that feels when you`re already doing more than you can handle to seem normal?
Yeah his parents let him do whatever he wants..
My strongest feelings on the matter are that a parent who never spanks his/her child is doing that child a world of disservice. My parents spanked me when I was younger, for example, and I still have memories about it - the strongest feeling is how many bad things I avoided doing because I feared a spanking. If I held any dislike for my parents for it, it was no more than the petty and childish dislike a child has for their parent when they are, for instance, not allowed to watch a movie because they have homework to do.
As for taking it too far: if you can`t figure out how to spank a child without badly hurting him, I`m going to have to question your intelligence.
yes, ADHD... and ADD... do exist. what pisses me off is when children use it as an excuse for everything. same with tourette`s. this kid at my school has tourette`s syndrom and blames everything on it (i.e. excessive talking... not a sign of tourette`s). although it is obvious that he has it... because he taps his feet a lot and "barks" when he gets nervous on a test.
It has NOTHING to do with my parents. It is a mental disorder and thats that. I have had to study my ass off to get where I am today. I am currently studying space science and physics; and I hope to be employed by NASA someday.
The one thing I has helped me develop discipline and study skills is music. I`ve been playing guitar and piano since I was 8. And I believe I wouldn`t be in school, doing as well as I am without it.
People with ADD or ADHD are usually very intelligent people, but the school system isn`t setup to teach them the way the need to learn.
There is a differnece between being fair and justand punishing a child for piss poor behavior, and actual child abuse. If the parents don`t know when to draw the line with their own behavior then the child won`t lean their own boundaries.
ATM, I`ve got a 10yr old who knows better than to try dumb poo anymore, since I`m her steapdad and came into the picture atage 6 it took some work. My 2 yr old however, he`s awesomely good. He does something wrong, I rasie my voice, he stops what he`s doing and says "sorr` dada." and usually gives me a hug if I really yelled. (like if he was about to hurt himself and I jumped up realquick yelling...)
I dunno, maybe I`m lucky with my kids.
You see, now I`m getting older, I`m learning to curve my hyperness into something usefull if you get me. And I do still get over the top, but that`s jsut my personality as well.And it really does upset/p.iss the hell outta me when people say hurtful things like that.
And don`t forget, I`m not getting at anyone here.So don`t start on me. ^-^
Ignore my arrogance. You get used to it. Just glad to entertain. I think. I could possibly be completely and utterly full of myself to think you`re referring to something I was involved with or I`m just observant to see almost no one else spoke about it. Or I just need to go to bed and stfu. I have a life. I`ll resume it tomorrow.
long live Marx! (Communism was a spin off his Socialist teachings)
Long Live Lenin! (Dispite his Sudden Death) For Eastablishing an Actual Socialist Country that isn`t Communist!
Long live my bed and NyQuill! Good night everybody. -> 4:30am.
....now, what`s wrong with this picture?
Ever see Fight Club? Let`s just blow up the corporate buildings and start at square one. <.< I mean, I`m a lawful and abiding citizen, Heil Bush!
lower Sugar, get the kids on a damn sports team and VOILA! no more ADD, but then the Corporations who thrive on the "illness" will go bankrupt, so they will have to invent another illness. (It doesn`t exist there is no such thing as ADD ) (there is a thing as low IQ,and short attention span syndrom thought )(forgot actual name)
I HATE YOU CAPITALIST PIGS!
It`s a rare case that`s `real` in regards to ADD. Most the time it`s parents that don`t want to be or fail at being parents.
My questions is.. why does this have to be stated on some stupid television show (Sorry SouthPark Fans) for people to realize it? Does the population just not.. think.. anymore?
