    I have never heard a more worse program on ADHD. WTF? OVER? I am a former ADHD counselor, and these two creepy sugary voices should not be speaking on such an important subject peeps need to be informed about. Get a more discerning character and voice. This is a dangerous fructose-sounding program, talking about a very serious subject. I thought this was KPFA’s Morning Joe? Shame indeed KPFA. The cause of ADHD is breakdown of family and community – a lack of continuity, certainty, and old fashion TLC. The young Organism, particualarly boys, is in distress naturally. The Organism, Spring green, is naturally instinctive (particularly in boys) , and senses something terribly wrong in the environment. Modernity, Divorce, Gentrification, Fear, Technology Media -the adult animals fail to warn their off-spring of the approaching Dangers, or causes to the effects they are forced to grow in. Because most adults are ignorant, and are exploited by the Pharmicutical Industry. Most Parents want their kids to fit in, and a pill to get the child to sit still is a great quick fix. Usually there are two parents working, and there is a lack of organic bonding with the child. This program was horrible, and irresponsible. Shame indeed. What’s going on with KPFA? Your starting medicated KPFA?

      but you sound very aggressive. I am not sure you should be working with children suffering from so-called ADHD?

      • Don Casey

        yes. of course. Maybe I should medicate mysel.

    Your guest is a crank! There is NO such thing as ADHD. And it si driven by capitalism–its a fraud. some crank phychiatrist –a fraudulent religion–needs to make a name–he creates ADHD, a diagnose he can treat and make a name for himself and he knows a guy in big pharma–an unholy union–or big pharma comes to dopey crank and sashay want to be rich–you are about diagnose a new condition. and it pushed to sell drugs. It is BS. We sit in front of computers more–we should be active–so we are antsy. students should active not taking exams. they start bouncing their leg because they should be climbing a tree–and suddenly they have ADHD. BIG Pharma is a fraud–ask you cranks? why isn’t the a problem in other countries–in Asia. it is not. americans have infinite conditions no one in th world has–because americans are brainwashed and inundated with capitalism–adverts, commercialism, consumerism, big pharma.

    wake the F–up! go climb a tree. swim in a lake. run. plant a garden. take a walk. you do not have ADHD–this is child abuse. stop drugging your children.
