and I don`t know how you all got to talking about God but logically, some higher because it`s impossible for everything to be here by accident. even if the big bang is real, what started the bang? and where did the matter that makes up the universe come from? Some being has to exist outside of time as we know it to answer these questions, and my belief is that "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth"... take it or leave it but there`s no way to prove logically that the world or anything came into existance without a higher being so...

Who doesn`t have ADD these days? anyone can go to their doctor and tell them their behavior and get diagnosed with a mild form. Discipline still works, though not to the exaggerated proportions that south park wants to take it to. Yes society did manage to avoid armaggedon before ritalin, so those of you who don`t think discipline is needed (not just ADD/ADHD kids, but to all spoiled brats) will have to suck your kid`s future boss`s dicks cuz ur to wussy to spank the kids to teach them that bad behavior will get bad things for them, and good behavior will get good things. I was diagnosed with a moderate form of ADD and I was an A student and went to college when I was 16. My parents whooped my ass if I didn`t do what I was supposed to and I learned to control myself. Though I am easily distracted, I can overcome it if I try hard enough, and so can almost everyone. only a few people have such a severe form of the d/o (psyc short for disorder) to need medication, mostly severe ADHD cases

I was diagnosed with mild ADD when I was 14 years old. I never even wanted to have it, but I took a legitimate test that tested my concentration level.

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.

that is such a funny episode. i like when all the parents and mr garrison take the Ritalin as well.
aas for the whole discipline debate? i WISH my parents had been tougher on discipline. my dad didnt want to spank me or hurt me in any way because his father would beat the living daylights out of him with a belt when he was young, my mum couldnt hurt me or my brother because she had tried so hard to have kids. but i do wish my parents had been tougher, now we seem to get everything we want, its spoiled my brother into never doing homework and playing games all day, i`m trying not to get spoiled.

i know that was late but i thought i`d chip in.

yeah, i don`t like the idea of beating your children but i suppose it works alot better than turning them into zombies with that ritalin crap.
i`m big on the `time-out instead of beating` technique.

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 used to babysit a boy with ADHD and his non-HDHD brother. I vowed to never babysit again. The ADHD one was violent, constantly hyper, non-stop talk, insulted easily, and couldn`t sit through 10 minutes of a movie without telling me about the blue truck he saw on the highway. And don`t get me started on how hard it was to explain the bruises on the brother`s face and arm after the ADHD one tried to beat him up. I know its only partly his fault, but still. Never. Again.

ADD is real, it`s just overly diagnosed. Of all the kids that are diagnosed with it maybe 30 some-odd percent actually have it. I guess the doctors don`t really feel like looking deeper into it and the parents automatically assume a behavior or academic problem is ADD. I know people with real ADD, and you can tell if they`ve had thier medicine or not. some people you cant, i think those are the ones who need the "You can either calm down or I`ll pop you in the mouth again" treatment

I would say that overall, hitting your children is harsh. however, if they are screaming, being violent, or otherwise being a complete douche, and refuse to follow direct commands to stop, than beat their ass down. No need to hit them for little things, or if they didn`t know better, but don`t let them grow up to be an immature jackass.

What really pisses me off is that Doctors Prescrib Ritalin for Children who would rather go out and play hockey rather then stay in and do homework.
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!


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!!!!

I don`t think that all cases are fake, in fact I am sure many kids do have ADD, I believe that many people are using that as an excuse to allow children to be spoiled and out of control. These kids need to be taught a lesson and spanked every once in a while.

`"Recent Studies" By who? You can find a "recent Study" For Everything, prooving and disprooving. Like Homopathie, Go Look into it, And you will be "Cured" of ADD or ADHD.I was Cured of Dislexia Because of Homopathie. It also helps on Emotional levels, And the best thing is that you don`t ahve to take it for the rest of yor life.
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.`

spanking/discipline has nothing to do with ADD. When i was little my dad was smack the living sh.it out of me (exaggeration, not child abuse) but yea he`d really discipline me hard and was real strict but i was still a crazy hyper kid with ADD so the parents arent ALWAYS to blame but u just have to look at the situation, sometimes u can blame the parents and sometimes, like in my case, u cant so yea.besides, my personality has always been and will always be like that. i mean i wasnt a bad kid or anything, theres a difference between that and being totally full of energy all the time. i think that being full of energy is a good quality to posess and really hate it when parents get kids ritalin for that. ADD is when that energy causes u to have extremely short attention spans and always i need of stimulation NOT when ure just plain energetic.

this clip started the biggest debate i have seen. i agree that in some cases, people can have ADD/ADHD. a girl i went to gym with had ADHD but her mother never did anything about it. i would sleep around her house and she would sometimes throw things and start a temper and her mother would just stand there. after i told her to get a grip she stopped.

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.

Ah, I remember my friend given ADD medicine...when diagnosed with depression she did not have. She had slowly progressing schizophrenia... She was kicked out of the house by her evil mother an is now in Dallas.

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 diagnosed with ADHD when i was like 9. I`m 13 now and I`m starting to think the whole "disorder" is a load of bull created by big corporate pharmecutical (sp?) companies to make an extra million dollars a year to their already buldging income. I`m supposed to take this thing called Conserta, though I rarely do. Without it, I`m fun-loving and I can end up getting in trouble once or twice every couple of months because of my "smartmouth". The thing is, the Concerta does do it`s "job". It makes me shut the hell up. But it also has this side effect not listed on the label. I`m like a zombie at school. I barely talk, not only during a lesson but with my friends also. Something fun we did yesterday would seem pointless and I`d rather not do anything. It`s like goddamn pot or something. I don`t know if it`s just me that`s out of wack, or what.

They`ll diagnose anyone with ADD. (I do agree that it is a real issue, but it isn`t the answer to everything.) My sister got these horrible headaches, and when she went to the doctor for them, they told her it was ADD. My sister gets honor roll, she is no more hyper than I am, basically, there is no way she has ADD. They wanted to put her on medication, but she`s been fine without it since she was diagnosed with `ADD`. In my opinion, some people use ADD as a scapegoat for a bunch of other problems, from bad parenting to just active kids. I don`t think they should medicate kids unless it is absolutely necessary.

The truth of the matter is that ADD and ADHD do not in fact exist, there is no factual medical evidence to support the "disorders". The APA (American Psychiatric Association) essentially invented the disorders by a show of hands. If you don`t believe me check this out.

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

THAT HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST FLAWED LOGIC I HAVE SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE.
that first statement, as you have concluded, was completely unecesarry. and flawed.
second, there is just as much "proof" that the bible is real as there is "proof" against it. there is no, was no, and NEVER will be a way to prove the Bible or any record true or false. except, if Jesus himself comes to earth to confirm it.
third, even if by some strike of luck the Bible was proven false, that has no bearing on the idea of God. the Bible could have been made up entirely, but God still could exist.

I know that sometimes ADD and ADHD can be real, but I think that most people who are diagnosed with it really don`t have it, they`re just bullsh*tting to get out of doing schoolwork. I remember giving out a survey once for class and about 75% of everyone I surveyed said that they had ADD or ADHD.

ADD... Attention Deficit Disorder. That`s a word I hate, "disorder." Do you know there`s practically a disorder for every aspect of life nowadays? Love sex? Disorder. Like to Drive a car? Disorder. There`s a disorder for how you put the toilet paper on the roll in the bathroom. I`d bet there`s a disorder for using the internet and talking about disorders. In that case, we all should be locked in a padded cell.

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

seriously, kids are only "ADD" in this country because parents are slackers. and yes, there are exceptions in extreme medical cases, so dont get pissy becuase i blame it on parents.
its perfectly okey to spank a child, but there is a line between beating and spanking. the problem is the parents either beat their children, or dont punish them at all physically.
and yes, physical punishment IS necissary, to a point, if kids dont learn by other means.

Oh, and spanking? What`s wrong with a good smack on the rump in a bad situation? No wonder kids are out of control these days. "OMG CHILD ABUSE"

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!

Dude, Necro, I didn`t say it wasn`t real and by no means am I `ignorant on the subject`. I work in a hospital and deal with this poo daily.

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

Koala you are a dumbass, and I`m guessing a hpocrite. With ADD you believe in some wild, unproven, capitalist conspiracy where the scientist are lying to sell drugs. However, you also mentioned that you, like me, dont believe in God. The advocates against evolution claim a similar scientific conspiracy. You cant scoff at one conspiracy and embrace another. Also, on capitalisim vs. commnisim look at GNP compared to average economic freedom. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:Index...

JALACAOB- I understand cancer has physical evidence, I was just making a point. If somebody is just going to wave something off when they little or no understand of the subject on hand just because, well they don`t understand it. Then they might as well apply said logic to all other illness and disorders.

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.

Cancer has obvious physical evidence and aside from that, if you want to pull cancer into this then take into consideration the fact that people who believe they can overcome it and think positively about the future more often than not actually survive the life-threatening ones. Others give up and let themselves die or `expect` to die, they do die.

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.

There`s no reasoning with me? So you know 1 of the million kids misdiagnosed with ADD so that proves it doesn`t exist? What kind of logic is that?! numerous scientific studies conducted by world heath organization among others, have concluded there is no like between sugar and hyperactivity, ADHD or ADD.
And I know what homeopathy is (which you spelled wrong by the way) and yes, it can help but not in all cases.

If you people would stop being completely black and white on this and realize that somewhere in my post (if my memory serves me correctly) I said a `real` case of ADD (and I suppose you could imply ADHD goes with that) is rare, and most the time it`s bad parenting.

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.

FINALLY I`m sick of people bitching "uh i have ADD it`s no fair". Theres just more sugar in foods now a days and parents dont have the balls to smack their kids into shape. And what vidd said I agree with, how smacking kids teaches kids NOT to do something and it will keep society running smooth.

"Recent Studies" By who? You can find a "recent Study" For Everything, prooving and disprooving. Like Homopathie, Go Look into it, And you will be "Cured" of ADD or ADHD.I was Cured of Dislexia Because of Homopathie. It also helps on Emotional levels, And the best thing is that you don`t ahve to take it for the rest of yor life.

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.

I hate when they try to make ADHD/ADD look like it can be treated with physical discipline.

Tell that to my parents who beat me silly, I still acted up, nothing could stop me.

Sugar does not cause ADD or hyperactivity Koala.

"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."

Notice that all who beleive in ADD or ADHD or say they have it are Under 18 years old.

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 agree with the others who have said that ADD has nothing to do with bad parenting. My childhood was very, very difficult because of ADD...because I was a girl, a quiet, seemingly very calm little girl, nobody ever suspected I might have ADD and so they didn`t find out until I was 14. So I struggled in school. It was much harder for me than it should have been, but that doesn`t mean I`m stupid. I just can`t focus as well as everyone else could.

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?

The matter at hand is that ADD/ADHD are not on/off things; you can have slight ADD, just as you can be mildly autistic or moderately retarded (etc). The problem is we`ve extended the meanings of these diseases so far that we apply them to kids who are, say, slightly more hyper than average.

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.

my brother has ADHD. he also has a slight case of autism. he is 7 years old and smart as a whip... you really can`t tell he has either... until he starts jumping on furniture, which is annoying... but he is on the verge of abs because of it.

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.

There is a difference between ADD and ADHD. I have ADD and have struggled with it my entire life. I have taken meds in the past but ceased due to the side effects (i.e. sleeplessness, decreased apatite, and just not wanting to be a zombie anymore.) My problem is my inner dialog can become "louder" than someone is speaking to me. I also have to read the same text several times before I can remember it.

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.

ok. let`s keep the add kids ouf of this for a while.
ALL parents should smack the poo out of their kids. That`ll build some discipline. Whether you have add or not.
Now to ADD kids. Its their parents fault, maybe if they werent such puss!es, they could make those kids understand. you want attention b!tch, here it is! (and thats when you put your fist in their face.)

Actual discipline works just fine for my kids. And if / when it actually is a sickness, then stay the hell away from my kids, `cause if you hurt one of mine,...

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.

exactly puff it has nothing to do with the fact of parenting or being a poorly behaved child. its a mental condition. my parents were great and i was the best child parents could want (within reason) and i have ADHD they thought they could fix it with ridilin <<< prolly spelled that wrong... and look at what happened it ruined my sleeping schedule its 5:48 am and im still wide awake >.< but either way u cant just brand ADD and ADHD kids as having bad parents or being misbehaving overall b/c thats not the case it all depends on the kid for me it was a need for attention from my peers so i acted like an idiot i didnt care if the attention i got was positive or negative as long as i got it but just as willow is doing now, i grew up and learned to control it and am putting that extra energy to good use. helping my friends and family with anything they need ^_^

I`ll probably get shouted at.
But I have ADHD, and I`ve grown up all my life with people telling me it`s bad parenting and that I`m just a badly behaved child.
But this is unbelieveably unfair.
I try very very hard in school, and when I get frustrated, I kinda explode. I`m very hyper and all sorts and it really hurts my parents for people to say to them, that they`re bad parents and it`s all their fault that I behave like this.

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.

Koala> Yeah, I know. I work in a pharmacy right now, temporarily until my training for criminal justice comes through.. and- Ok, so it`s a military pharmacy. I once saw a woman come in with three boys no older than ten at best. One of them was talking to the other or something minor and she looked at them with a killer scowl, snapped her fingers and said, "Front and Center." The three boys lined up and stood AT ATTENTION. ...wtf mate. They`re KIDS. Lo and behold they were picking up Ritalin for ALL THREE.

....now, what`s wrong with this picture?

What really pisses me off is that Doctors Prescrib Ritalin for Children who would rather go out and play hockey rather then stay in and do homework.

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!

Have to agree with Koala. Although I`ll be annoyingly technically correct and state that there`s a line between spanking and beating the hell out of them with a bat. <.<

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?

Hn.
