Today’s world seems to have a large portion of our children on mind-altering drugs like Ritalin. Are our youth really in that much health distress that we need to drug them up so often and for so many years? Health Canada estimates that there has been an increase in Ritalin use of 547% since 1990. There is growing controversy in society about the use of such drugs, and in my opinion, it is justified.
Ritalin is a stimulant and is in a group of drugs that are considered addictive drugs. If you believe that this drug cannot or will not hurt your child, you have been misinformed.
