Spoiled Children of Divorce

Ritalin as Step-Parent

A study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal back in June, 2007 found that Ritalin, which is prescribed for ADHD, is dished out to kids from divorced families almost twice as often as to kids from normal families.

The study was conducted by Lisa Strohschein, a sociologist at the University of Alberta in Edmonton.  Strohschein gives no reason for why this happens. It reminds me of the story of a guy named Howard Dully whose Step-Mother had him lobotomized and managed to get his Father to go along with it.  When the lobotomy didn’t work to her satisfaction she had him committed for the remainder of his childhood.
