I can't believe some of the things that are placed as "symptoms" - What if kids really are being kids. Many of these behaviors I had when I was small and I would even check some now that I'm older but I don't see anything wrong with that.
It seems to me that we know want to label our children with so many "disorders" or dysfunctions, or whatever instead of praising them for their individuality. We just want a name to their "problems" and when we get one, we can path that part up and add some meds as if that was gonna fix them "problem" I know that some of these mental disorders can be true.
I was diagnosed as bipolar, then some form of schizophrenic, then with Major Depressive disorder, then they said I had tendencies of Borderline Personality Disorder. They gave me all these meds that only made me gain weight made me feel even worse. I was just having a tough time and I needed someone there for me. Now I'm fine.
Sometimes I feel crappy, sometimes I don't. Sometimes I'm hyper, sometimes I'm not. I did not need to be diagnosed with all those disorders neither did I need crazy doses of all those meds.
I think we need to be more loving towards our kids and accept them the way they are because in reality, most, if not all of these disorders, are a bunch of crap. They only become legit because of some dumb-cluck who has those extra letter after his/her name. A lot of the people in the psychology fields care only about money and that's not cool. I'm not a psychologist but I know that sometimes classifications and med prescriptions are not the best answer to our kids acting the way they do.
