The Myth Of The Tdah

Original text: In relation to the preoccupations of Liliana by the TDAH in their Blog, the following reflections are happened to me. Until when we are going to persecute and to punish to the children with all class of pseudopathological excuses (TDAH, infantile depression, oposicionista upheaval, disocial upheaval, enuresis, scholastic failure )? Obviously, it seems that " times oscuros"they continue by average subtler. The reasons are multiple: he is easier and cheap to put shirts of force to the juniors, that to terapizar to incapable ancestors and to improve the educative and social landlords? by its neurosis, little parents – and hardly the society in general will dare to confront with anger and humility their responsibilities in the suffering of the children? quiet economic and political powers toil without rest to annul to all the people " diferentes" the own childhood begins to be, for some, one " enfermedad" unbearable, then, it is not the spontaneous life, by definition, a continuous threat for neurotics? Thus he continues, in psychopathological slang, the war against the childhood. (1) However, nobody can allege at the moment – later of a century of psychological and humanizadoras contributions (from Freud to our missing person Stakes out Miller and the development of " Rights of the Nio")- " desconocimiento" some on the evident causes of the human pain and their consequences. The formula is simple: lack of affection, I mistreat, injustice = violence, neurosis, madness.

To blame, therefore, to the victims; to look for " three feet to gato" of the problem; to invent mental diseases without the smaller biological base, not only is acientfico, but immoral. (2) He is immensely fraudulent, P. ex., " diagnosticar" supposed " TDAH" by means of as ridiculous questions as: " tries disrespectfully the boy to people majors? He is impulsive, irritable? Becomes lean the finger or the clothes? Fight with its brothers? Weeping, or gawky, or is become absorbed in thought, or anxious, or timid, or lying, or disobedient, or destroyer, or takes tempers, or are scared to be only, or it does not finish the things that begin, or is too immature for his age, etc.
