Seriously, WTF is circulating in FL? And is it an airborne or waterborne transmission?

I mean, she probably at least WebMD'd it, so that's just like getting a prescription from a doctor.

Any person that experiments on children with drugs without knowing precisely what the fark they are doing should be burned at the stake.

I know, right? The important questions aren't being answered here.

Kid will probably be on it anyway within 5 years, doctors will throw out a prescription for that if you bring a kid in that's hopped up on mountain dew and pixie sticks.
 
2013-11-02 01:24:47 AM
That's why I only use other peoples kids for my science experiments.
 
2013-11-02 01:27:39 AM
What the hell is wrong with people? Who was she going to use as a control? Does no one understand proper experimental design anymore? Just sickening.

Eeeeeeeeyeah.
My mom used to feed me Ritalin she got from a friend to see if it made any difference. That went on for a couple of months.
And when it did make a difference she took it away and told me never to take Ritalin because it was getting me high.

Gateway drugs that are readily available to your average suburban child.  He'll be freebasing out of the sugar bowl within the year :-)

I don't know. My cure for all things kids is: STOP HAVING THEM.  But I am sure I will be attacked by the whole, "Misery Loves Company" clan and will be put back in my place with every parent explaining how much in love they are with their kids. OK. I am sure you are. Just keep them out of my face. Good luck with financing all of their college tuition. You will either be broke for the rest of your life or your kids will resent you for not being able to "put them through school". You can't win. My uncle has been killing himself for 20 years putting his 3 ungrateful kids through school. It is kind of pathetic because those kids are so spoiled and their parents are pretty much destitude.

Kittehs and dogs do not need useless college, they just need homes. And they are much more grateful than most teenagers.

Back in the 70's my mom was recommended by a first grade teacher to give me Ritalin.  At it turns out I was bored with the curriculum, finished the work early, and would wander the classroom trying to help other students.  My mom, bless her heart, told the teacher to get stuffed and pulled me out of that school.

Well, a woman trying to improve her child's behavior? That's GOT to be a crime of some type.

Thank FSM we have the government to save us from ourselves.

Crushing it up and putting it into his food is just going to make it even stronger by getting it into his system all at once instead of slowly dissolving. she made a bunch of stupid errors and i support this arrest.

She's lucky the kid didn't get really sick or worse.

Dude! How right you are! I mean, if everyone would just get on board with this, all human problems like war, disease, deficit spending, everything! would be licked in about 50 years.

What bothers me is that she ruined the double-blind. The instructor should not have known which of her students had been treated. If she knows one child was treated, her perceptions of that child's behavior will be affected and rendered unreliable.

Stupid mother.

I think it's just farking incredible people give that shiat to their kids. I've stupidly used it recreationally, and I'm amazed people take it every day. It feels like cocaine.

Ritalin is an amphetamine. But It's supposed to be taken on a dosing schedule.

Not doled out like candy and good doctors know that Ritalin is useless without therapist involvement. Also studying the environment and making sure the parents are sane too.

I'm sure jail will solve her parenting issues. Doesn't sound like her family needs any real help.

You know, it would be legal and probably effective to do the test with coffee. If the stimulant helps him calm down and pay attention, go to a doctor and tell him that. I understand her desire to find out. Children can be pretty extreme, and raising them can be confusing. But it's probably better to keep it legal, eh? As far as that goes, this doesn't strike me as too terrible, if given at an appropriate dose. Let him who hasn't given his older teen a half glass of wine with a fancy dinner cast the first cork. (That's not legal, you know. But who doesn't do that, seriously? Moderation should be taught, not just mandated.

You sound mad. I think I'll roll the dice one more time for you. If you're that fat guy in my building, I'm sorry my boy grabbed your jogging pants. I stopped him right away. I also washed his hands once we got inside. Try having a shower sometime.

Unlikely it was time-release. The standard stuff dissolves like an aspirin.

Jesus, what a stupid coont... It was idiotic to give the kid drugs in the first place, but she could have at least been a little more discreet with the teacher. Say that you are changing your kid's diet, experimenting with bedtimes, anything but the fact that you illegally gave him pharmaceuticals...

It's my kids that are going to be running the country when you're drooling in your oatmeal. Personally, I think you should be able to hate on 'em all you want, but you should also 'Opt Out' and get to spend your latter years(The ones where the kids you despise so much are the ones running things) on some little island out in the middle of farking nowhere. That way the kids you don't support won't have to support you either. It's a win-win, really.

And it sounds like your uncle is a moron. Pretty sure he's one of those people who really shouldn't have had kids, he obviously can't raise them for shiat.

If you don't have ADHD maybe it feels like cocaine, but if you really have ADHD, it's different. Other than a weird sensation that my sinuses have opened up (oh, and I'm actually able to tune out distractions) I can't tell it's in my system.

For the life of me, I can't see how anyone can get high on the stuff. No amount I've taken has ever given me any amount of euphoria, etc.

Nice try, but Cog Spinner was the one who started telling people what to do, without provocation, in all caps no less, while complaining about being attacked. You're both idiots. Brainsick was merely defending against the allegations about his poor finance skills.

Adderall is the one that's an amphetamine - specifically, dextroamphetamine. Ritalin is methylphenidate, another sort of CNS stimulant.

If you ask me - fark that, just give the kid some coffee.
