Kinda irked by the abstract "pull in" of the increase of gay and lesbian adolescent suicides. I am not trying to take away from the severity of this topic - however, I think it's a broad leap that is pulled in and inadvertently distracts from the direct topic.

Anyway, I have an acquaintance who is Rx'ing doctor and one evening over dinner I asked her about her broad perception ADHD and Dx'ing it in children and her response was, "I would like to see a "parental" questionnaire, developed to coincide with currently used ADHD questionnaires, where family members, (grandparents, siblings of the parents, teachers/school admins, and even older children being observed for diagnoses) could respond to questions regarding the parent(s) involvement and/or efficiency."

A very good idea.

I have ADHD (now fully controlled by meditation and exercise after a stint on medication) and both my kids have been diagnosed too. Quite clearly my ADHD behaviour was an enormous stressor to them- and certainly made them worse. Now they improve as i improve.

Here's what the feud and reconciliation between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson can teach us about civility

Thom plus logo Donald Trump did not invent the art of the political insult but he's inflamed the level of vitriolic public discourse and incivility to a new low unmatched by other presidents. In a tainted tradition that has permeated our history, other presidents have not been immune to dishing out acerbic insults against one another.
