Tell a mother or a nanny of an ADHD child that it is ridiculous to medicate a child.

The next time someone informs me as such, I'm going to direct them to my charge at homework time when he has skipped meds.

Then I am going to kick them in the shins.

  1. This is a huge pet peeve of mine. People who would never in a million years comment on your hairstyle, weight, or intelligence have no problem jumping in with advice about medication based on what they heard on the evening news or read in an email. A man at the library once asked me what kind of medications I took when he saw I was checking out books on chronic pain. It blows my mind.
