Our society has “gone crazy” in labelling normal children

The Parenting Centreas having a “mental disorder” simply because they don’t “fit in” and they aren’t “obedient”. We use these labels as a justification to chemically restrain their behaviour through the use of dangerous drugs. Dr. Jacobs has spoken out for many years about the fraud of “ADHD” and other childhood “disorders”.

Below you will find articles by Dr. Jacobs and others about the way psychiatry hurts children and how we can move instead to a society where we celebrate behavioural diversity the same way we try to celebrate all forms of diversity.  Children are all different, and that is a cause for joy, not concern!
