This is really minor, but I have to get it off my chest or else it'll just grow and grow. Anyway... I have a friend who has a child the same age as my difficult child. My friend is pretty self-righteous -- very into her particular form of child-rearing, diet, politics, childhood education, etc. I like her anyway, and she knows she's a bit much sometimes. She does _not_ approve of my decision to try medication for my difficult child. She asks questions about it all the time. A few days ago she asked if there were other "medicated kids" in his class. "Medicated kids." Because that's his defining characteristic, right? Oh, I can't explain it, but it just makes me mad.
