Never is it justified to put a small child on medication that can hinder
their mental and physical growth. Parents seem to often underestimate
the long term effects some of these medications have on their children.
I’d rather see parents learn to cope with their child’s instabilities
rather than looking for an easy way out of periodical aggravating
conflict. Your child, as it grows, is going to experience hardships and
emotional strains that may come across as obscure, hell, even damaging.
But doping your child up on a mass amount of pills could set them up for
a disaster in the waiting and can potentially hinder their ability to
adapt and grow as individuals. If monitored improperly, and prescribed
at random, these medications can cause more harm than good.
