....it hit home with us. I have been considering this move for some time. I did not have the option to stay home. Just when it seemed it could be worked out, Fred (my husband) lost his job. That was last November. Last night we agreed that he must take on the schooling. I was impressed at his ready agreement to do so. When he finds another position, we will exchange roles. I have been a respiratory therapist for thirty years. I WILL NOT GIVE MY SON DRUGS. I WILL LEAVE THIS COUNTRY IF I MUST. The son to whom I am referring is the last of five. I have seen first hand what public schools have to offer. I already knew full well that I could never win as a parent. While I have a litany of lesser, albeit still damaging, sad stories, this is the first time that the threat has been life and death. I want to thank you sir for the hours, lost sleep, time spent away from your own loved ones, tireless efforts on behalf of all children everywhere. I have one child to rescue-and he is my own beloved son. You, on the other hand, have taken on the whole
I have worked a lifetime with physicians,sir. I have seen physicians for my own and my family's lifetime. You are a shining star within your profession-your community-and to the benefit of untold numbers of innocent children. I thank you sir, for the tears you must have shed and must continue to shed, for the innocents and for the future of our nation. God Bless you and help you on your way. With the greatest of respect, I once again wish to thank you. C****** *. B****** C**** & F*** B****** wrote: I have been pressured mercilessly by my child's school for an ADD dx for my child. I can not express to you how I have felt. When you pointed out that children don't just wake up at age eight (our son is-you guessed it-eight) with brain diease, you validated my argument! Tuesday Jan. 29, 2002 I will meet with these people yet again. The difference is this time I will have your articles with me! I called for the meeting because we fially took our son to the doctor (family practice) in a final attempt to disprove the school bullies. The physician told my husband he did not have hyperactivity (I have known this all along-but the school works on you to break you down) however he was less sure about ADD. Like the other children I read about our son is sensitive, bright-reading well above grade level, excellant sense of humor, participates in several physical activities and is described by his teacher and others involved just as if his "symtoms" were being read off a cue card. Thank you for your work and efforts on behalf of our children! Frankly, I don't have much hope of my child receiving a useful education in the public school system. In fact from my observations, he stands to be done a great harm if we continue to send him to that place.
