Jesus Christ Is Lord

That every knee should bow and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord to the glory of God the Father!

The Best Way To Increase State Power: String The Children – ESPECIALLY THE MALES! – Out On ADHD Medication!

I wonder if there is an entry on Christina Hoff Sommers’ work on “The War Against Boys.”

Study: Boys’ parents more likely to report problems

Parents of about 15% of kids spoke to school staff or health care providers about their children’s emotional and behavior problems in the last year, according to a survey released Wednesday, the first-ever to gauge the issue …

Nearly 1 out of 5 boys had parents who discussed such difficulties, and about 1 out of 10 girls, says the report from more than 17,000 parents with children 4 to 17 years old. The survey, released by the National Center for Health Statistics, was done in 2005 and 2006 …

About 5% of children were prescribed medicine, mostly for attention-deficit disorder (ADHD), with another 5% receiving other treatment, such as therapy, alone or combined with medication …

Bringing concerns out in the open is all to the good, says David Fassler, a child and adolescent psychiatrist and clinical professor at the University of Vermont. “More and more American parents are recognizing the symptoms of emotional and behavior problems, and they’re asking for help,” he says. The survey was done after pediatric use of ADHD medications and antipsychotics had skyrocketed, show figures from Medco Health Solutions, a large pharmacy benefit management company

The high number of parents who confide worries shows “the very, very narrow range of normalcy allowed for children these days,” says behavioral pediatrician Lawrence Diller of Walnut Creek Calif., author of The Last Normal Child. “Welcome to the age of anxiety, where more is expected of children academically and in self-discipline, while both parents are working, so there’s less support and structure.” … (And where are these higher expectations created? By the government, especially government schools, and the media! Instead of telling our boys and girls that Jesus Christ loves them, we burden and scare them with all of our demands that have NOTHING to do with their salvation or their walk with Jesus Christ.)

For kids who do get counseling, 39% receive it at school, and 27% at their doctor’s office, the survey finds. (So … people aren’t taking their kids to get counseling AT CHURCH? By the way, it makes no difference whether the counseling takes place in a government school or in the office of a member of the American Psychological Association whose theories are totally given over to the discredited atheistic perversions of Kinsey, Freud, and similar … a person who rejects Jesus Christ cannot truly help your child.) More pediatricians are bringing mental health experts into their offices, or bringing them on-board as consultants, says Jane Foy, a pediatrics professor at Wake Forest University and spokeswoman for the American Academy of Pediatrics. Pediatricians are hearing more about mental health issues, and therapy services are sparse, especially for children whose problems are not severe, she says.

Some school districts have increased their mental health services for students, says Kathy Cowan of the National Association of School Psychologists. “But there’s still a huge dearth of help for kids in many districts,” she adds.
