DrugsI am posting this article to spark discussion on an issue that I think educators often overlook and parents should be more concerned about. Dr Peter Breggin talks about how drugging our children is equal to child abuse. In his article The New Child Abuse: The Psychiatric Diagnosing and Drugging of our Children he states that 'convincing children that they have "something wrong" in their heads such as genetically crossed wires or biochemical imbalances is the surest way to rob them of self-esteem, personal responsibility, self-mastery and the hope of an unlimited future.'
