My 11-year old daughter has just been diagnosed as ADHD and the
psychologist has recommended medication.  (Her regular physician--the MD who
has taken care of her since she was 3 months old--says that she is not ADHD
and does not need medication.) 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
Cling to the sensible opinion of this
MD, not perverted, not in need of making "patients" of normal children, not
a party to drugging them into submission. Write everything down, keep
detailed notes. Do they say to you it--ADHD is a disease, the pivotal lie
when no psychological/psychiatric condition is a lies.]

My daughter is not doing well in 6th grade 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
never a disease, never a reason to put on
brain altering drugs. A psychologist initiating such things is practicing
medicine without a license.]

.  Her grades began to fail when her
father divorced me in 2000 and tried unsuccessfully for one year to gain
custody of her.  It was a very bitter divorce.  I got full custody, but my
ex convinced my daughter's guardian ad litim (who was the opposing attorney
in my sister's bitter divorce) and the judge that he would be the best
parent to help her with her homework. (I have a bachelor's & master's
degree, and was one course away from a PhD when I had her in 1991.) My ex
has her 3 nights a week, and allows her to watch television and/or listen to
"soft music" (Shania Twain turned down low) on a walkman.  While he reads a
book or watches TV, she rushes through homework to watch more TV or to go
outside to play with friends.  I don't think she has ADHD 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
there is
no such disease, psychiatry saying there is lies to the public decieves and
betrays, and specifically I mean the Am. Psychiatric Assn]

.  I think
she is a goof-off who avoids homework because her dad lets her get away with
it.  I also think that you can't do your homework while you are listening to
"Boot Scootin' Boogie" and "I'm Gonna Get You, Get You, Get You."  This
thing is now going to court.  It is my understanding that I can possibly
lose custody of my daughter if I refuse to go along with the psychologist's
recommendation and allow her to be medicated.  My heart is breaking at the
thought of drugging this very capable, very bright child just because her
father is not living up to his responsibilities as her "tutor."  I am
equally anguished over the fact that if I don't allow her to be drugged, the
court could take her away from me.  This seems like blackmail in the
blackest form 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
It is blackmail in the blackest form but it is
happening often in divorce settings and even where cohesive, united couples
try to take a stand against the schools in collusion with psychiatry,
mental health, cps and local courts.]

I am just a waitress with very little
money to fight the court system.  I am so afraid of losing my
daughter--losing her not only through custody, but also losing her through
mind-altering drugs. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
You understand fully the nature of the evil
confronting you and your daughter, while your ex is willing to play these
frightful cards against you the price being the labeling and drugging of a
normal child who soon into the process will be normal no longer.]

I live in *******, ********, 23 miles south of *********, ********.

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
keep a paper trail the more detailed the better. You have a strong
card in the stance of your own MD. I know an attorney, Randy Kretchmar in your area, call him. There is a bill in
Congress against this very thing. But you are entangled and will likely
remain entangled, your daughter, sadly, the pawn. If you get an attorney I
will consult.]
