  1. Let’s hope she gets it right. And then let’s see a Whole lot More programs follow her getting it right in that the Whole Child Drugging epidemic is So Wrong.

  2. Sadly, I tend to agree that the show is unlikely to get it right. It is such a discouraging issue at times. On my website I provide an annual scholarship and was shocked to get an entry from someone on the suject of INFANT bipolar! Given that in my experience, some of the most reliable red-flags for mania are grandiosity, over-spending , and hypersexuality, I had a lot of trouble seeing how these could apply to a newborn. There was so much publicity about Dr Biederman and his fake “research” that I really hoped that by now the whole meds for kiddies craze would be exposed – I guess we will just have to watch and see!

  3. I hate and loathe the title of this article!!!
    It implies that we should be ‘correctly’ medicating our children

    WE SHOULD NOT BE MEDICATING CHILDREN AT ALL?!
