I tutor, and I see a lot of kids diagnosed with things that require drugs whose necessity I question. But just about every time, the situation in the home is emotionally/ psychologically extreme.

In order for the kids to be medicated, there are two things that need to happen, and the complicity of the medical community is only one of them. The other thing that has to happen is that a parent has to pay to have the prescription filled, and likely often make sure the drug is taken.

In order for the parent link of the chain to be broken, we'd have to be more okay with talking far more openly about parent-child relations.

Chicken-egg question of the day - what's going to happen first? Big Pharm stops directing medicine, or parents say "I have a problem" before they say "my child is a problem"?
