Preschoolers on Meds?!?!?!

Here are some highlights from a Parenting.com article by Kelly King Heyworth:

  • More than a quarter of US kids and teens now take regular medication.
  • About 1 in 5 children ages 13 to 18 have some sort of mental disorder
  • These medicines are not meant to be a quick solution for stressed-out families

This one just blew my mind and raised a few questions:

  1. Are these kids really this bad?
  2. Are parents just that lazy?
  3. Or is there a serious rise in mental disorders in children?

But I digress… here it is in all it’s glory:  Preschoolers on Meds: Too Much Too Soon?
