So happy to see this making its way around the internet! It is truly incredible to me how how diagnosis-happy our culture is. Let kids be kids. If you don’t like how they are expressing themselves than teach them a healthy response. Drugging them into submission is not the answer. Childhood and adolescence is full of changes socially, physically, and hormonally. Let your kids know it’s ok to feel what they are feeling, and then teach them how to deal with it. Relate to them, let them know you’ve been there. Don’t further isolate them, and tell them there’s something wrong with them because you’re too busy/tired/impatient to parent properly. Plenty of children do struggle with mental/emotional illnesses, but plenty of others just need to feel loved and accepted while they figure out who they are and deal with the changes they’re experiencing. Take the time to identify the difference and give your kids what they really need.
