You must read this solid article by a non-Christian on why ADHD is not a problem in France but IS a problem in the USA. Interesting fact from the article is that less than 0.5% (not even 1%) of French children are diagnosed ADHD while 9% of American children seem to have the diagnosis. Is it something in our water over here? Maybe it’s the Eiffel Tower? Or maybe, just maybe, it’s more of a DISCIPLINE issue related to environment, culture, and child-rearing and NOT a medical, bio-chemical problem requiring expensive medications for children that could lead to chemical dependency problems when adults. Hmmm…

Also, great book to read on the subject is by Dr. David Tyler and Pharmacist Kurt Grady entitled ADHD: Deceptive Diagnosis that provides tons of facts about this often diagnosed problem. When you finish that book, then you can read my parenting book, Addiction-Proof Parenting, that is published in Korean and soon in Chinese. Maybe other cultures are embracing the truth of the Bible than our American culture?!?!? Hmmm…

Remember that the first article cited above is NOT Christian but right on target in several ways. While I probably would not agree with everything she believes (nor would she with me), I do think she is on the right track with this issue. It’s time the truth set our culture free, wouldn’t you agree?
