So glad the week is almost over. I am just eager for August to get here, I finally graduate for one school just to start another. I weighed myself the other day, still the same weight for the past week, I'm fine with that, not that I have had any time to get to the gym. Next week I start going to the park with my mom the walk early in the morning, which will be good since I am working just about every day now, at least till the hire someone new, boo. My son has passed 8th grade, he is now a freshman, yuck. My daughter passed 1st grade. Her problem is she doesn't pay attention, and I dont wont to pump her full of drugs like parents are so quick to do these days. I have already been told my daughter is ADHD by a therapist, but so am I, so is my son, and I have seen the effects of what taking drugs can do to a person. I understand that sometime a child needs it, but the problem is kids are being over medicated for a quick fix. I know I was ready the side effects of what my son takes and I was like no way. I dont really want my son on anything, but the in home therapy wont see him if he is not medicated, which I dont agree with that, especially when I see no difference in his behavior. I did request to take something for mine, and I have seen a difference, but I also am lucky to not to have had any side effects. Kids need to allowed to be kids, just cause your child is defiant doesnt mean they need to be drugged, it's means you need to be a parent and a punish them for their actions. WHich is another problem with todays generation, parents are scared to spank their kids. I got my tail in spanked hard when I was a kid and I am thankful for it, I also needed it. I am not saying beat your kids, there is a difference is spanking and beating. Take those electronics away from them. I see kids 7 yrs old with cell phones, that is crazy. Kids dont need cell phones.

    No they don't need them at that age & you also have to do what is best for you & your children.
