The first week that my niece went to school at the ripe old age of 6 the school called my sister and told her that there was something wrong with her kid and that she needed to take her to a shrink, (referred by the school} and when my sister did so, they said that the little girl had ADD and needed to be on Ritalin. After being on it for 3 weeks my niece claimed to hear voices in her head telling her to kill her teacher and herself. She told her mom that and my sister took her off that shit. I won't go into the entire saga of what happened after that because I would have to write a book to do so. Needless to say, it ended up with my niece being home schooled and that was what saved her in the end. That was after being in the wonderful government run school system for 6 years though. Too bad we didn't have the internet back then because we could have known better a lot sooner if we had. My family went through a lot of hell because of ignorance instead.
