As a Certified Family Life Educator through the National council on
Family Relations I appreciate beyond telling your courage in exposing ADD

counsel on advising parents beyond telling them of the fraud of psychiatric

Sincerely, Fred Baughman, MD

P.S. Once convinced of the fraud of the biological model, most can begin
believing in their own common sense and loving, nurturing, inclinations.
That some can use other advice I readily admit. The problem, just as in
