Attempting to obey God and follow Jesus Christ our Lord

Family Security Matters— Making Little Murderers

This story is a reminder that our children are being manipulated and altered with drugs to fit into a box that suits the teachers and caregivers, whether they are parents or someone else. I am sorry if I step on someones feet here and please do not think that I do not understand parents dealing with children that have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I have two sons that were diagnosed with ADHD. They wanted to treat them with drugs. I investigated and asked around to see if there were alternatives. I discovered that there were several, one was to keep the child occupied with something that required concentration, such as working with models. Another was finding someone who they could trust to spend time talking with them where they could be free to express their thoughts without judgment and knew that that person would keep their conversation private. Since schools do not allow Christ in them anymore, they do not have that extra resource that children used to be able to rely upon. They have no moral grounding, they are not even allowed to question in a lot of instances. They are told to sit down, shut up, sit quietly, do not ask questions, and above all do not question your teacher even if you know they are wrong. These are how children are treated in a lot of schools where there is control of the situation. In other schools, the teachers have no control at all. The children spend their time bullying their fellow classmates, playing games, or whatever else occupies their mind.

Children need structure, they need discipline and that need something to anchor them. Without God in our schools there is none of that. Instead, they spend too much time alone, playing video games that teach them that death is only an illusion. If they die in the game they just get a new life. When this is what they learn from very young children, it doesn’t take much to see children who are on mind altering drugs, thinking that they are living the video games that they play. When you have no connection to reality, your reality is what you connect to the most. Please take the time to read this post from Alan Caruba at Family Security Matters.

Making Little Murderers

by ALAN CARUBA

If anything good comes from the Newtown massacre, it will be a national discussion of the role of various psychological medications that have been foisted on a generation or two of young Americans in the nation’s schools. Particularly dangerous have been a group called Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors (SSRIs).

While the White House and other gun-banning groups grab the spotlight by putting the blame on guns, columnist Dr. Jerome R. Corsi recently reported that SSRIs have played a role in “some 90 percent of school shootings over more than a decade…according to British psychiatrist Dr. David Healy, a founder of RxISK.org, an independent website for researching and reporting on prescription drugs.”

A visit to one of Dr. Healey’s websites, ssristories.com, provides more than 4,800 news stories involving some level of violence in which antidepressants are mentioned. SSRIs include Prozac, Zoloff, Paxil, Celexa, Lexapro, and Luvox. Others include Remeron, Anafranil, Effexor, Cymbalta, and Pristiq, as well as the dopamine reuptake inhibitor antidepressant Wellbutrin, marketed as Zyban. If you listen closely to television ads for medications to stop smoking and address other problems, you will hear warnings about the way they can cause serious mental disabilities.

In a recent article onCanadaFreePress.com,Tom DeWeese, the president of the American Policy Center, a grassroots activist think tank, he said that “Today more than 7,000,000 children have been labeled, tamped and registered as permanent patients of the school system; 10 to 12 percent of all boys between the ages of 6 and 14 in the United States have been diagnosed as having ADD (Attention deficit disorder). One in every 30 Americans between the ages of 5 and 19 years old has a prescription for Ritalin.” The corollary diagnosis is ADHD, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Think of it is millions of tiny time bombs in the schools and banning certain kinds of guns or limiting how many bullets can be in a clip has nothing to do with the mental illness that causes mass murders.

For a decade I was the communications director for the American Policy Center and was appalled to learn how the nation’s educational system had been altered from schools that concentrated on academics to schools whose purpose was behavior modification. In 1965, the passage of the Elementary and Secondary Act opened the doors to a legion of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and “the psychiatric programs and testing needed to validate them.”

DeWeese reported that “To date, there has never been issued a single peer-reviewed scientific paper officially claiming to prove ADD/ADHD exists.

  1. How nice for you that those substitutes worked with your children.

    I have two boys diagnosed with ADHD. One was so bad, that he was labeled as ‘unteachable’ by the public school system. They stuck other labels on him as well, like ODD. He could not sit still for even 30 seconds. He was also violent. We feared for our lives, just living with him. For him, medicine was definitely needed. Sadly, at the time, we were told that legally they could not give him anything until he reached the age of five. Those were hell years that I would not want to go through ever again, for ANYTHING. When he went on the medicine, life returned to somewhat normal, and teaching could begin.

    My other child with ADHD was not as severe, and seemed to have a different version of the ADHD. The alternative vitamin/diet treatments did not work on him either, and the one time he tried the usual ADHD medicine, he became angry and unfocused. His symptoms were manageable through his environment.

    Yes, I schooled my children at home, as a private school unaffiliated with anyone else. There, I could tailor the curricula to their needs. Each child was different, and needed different approaches.

    Both kids are now believers in Christ, and are going to college and trade school.

    And yes, the one is still on his medicines.

    I would LOVE to see him not even need the medicines. But until that point, he remains on them, for with them, he can be of good use to society, – both man’s and God’s.

    So to make blanket statements, (as the man in the article seemed to do,) that tries to cover ALL children diagnosed with ADHD, is not being realistic. Neither is the call against the medicines. It really is a matter of case-by-case basis. And yes, I do agree, that the public schools are over diagnosing this. Yet is this reason enough to go completely in the opposite direction, and outlaw the use of the meds? I pity those parents with children like my boy, if this is to be the case….

    • I am not of the opinion that these drugs need to be outlawed, I am of the opinion that all too often they are the first resort instead of the last. Like any other condition, it has it’s abusers. So many people do not even know that there are alternatives. Even some that I did not mention, like hypnosis.

  2. I agree very much! They tend to be very quick to label and prescribe. Hypnosis is one that I had not heard of before. It sounds kind of scary though. I have heard that this can be a doorway for demons to enter into person. I’d have to be really sure that the person doing the hypnosis was a believer…

    Thanks for posting my comment and not taking it personally. You are such a sweet heart!
