Our second child -- aka 'The Boy,' 'Genghis Boy,' 'Attila the Boy' -- was described as 'the Ritalin Poster child' when he was about four. Unbelievable. The stories I could tell. I figured I should have gotten a double tax deduction just based on the sheer destruction in a typical year. However, no way I was going to drug him. He's fourteen now. Still QUITE a piece of work, but I'd say he's one strong person. Pretty high-maintenance, but he's a keeper. You gotta let kids come to terms with who they actually are. We all have to do that.
