Drugs and kids...

We didn't have ADHD when I was a kid.  (It hadn't been invented yet :))  We had discipline and were held accountable for our actions.  Sometimes painfully accountable.  :)

Stay safe.

Boy howdy, that's the truth. My mom had a big black belt that she would take to us kids, it made you sit up and pay attention, I'll tell you!

They took away discipline and replaced it with medicating children. Despicable.

My mom's favorite was an 18-inch ruler, or an unplaned lath.
In front of all us kids for shame factor.
