  1. agreed. especially the kid with the ADHD label. sorry, but ADHD doesn’t exist. turn off the boob toob, spend some time with a kid, and their focus problems will eventually go away…it just takes TIME and EFFORT (two things that seem to be in short supply with most parents).

  2. I had a teacher in college one time tell me, in a very concerned tone, that she was afraid that I might be ADD and that maybe I should seek medical treatment.

    I thought it was funny because I was in an art school, every single one of us would doodle in class or do something other than just sit quietly and listen to the most boring lecture you can think of in Sociology.

    I did say this though, “Why would I want to do that? Right now I can work on three things at once. I think that’s a bonus for me.”

    She just looked at me with her mouth open. Guess she never though of it that way.

    Seriously though, yeah I do about three to five things at once because my mind works that way. My martial arts training taught me how to control it instead of it controlling me.

    Is it ADD? Hell, I don’t know. I just figured that my brain works faster than my hands so it had to find ways to keep itself busy while the body caught up.
