I was an active boy. I couldn't sit still in school. If Ritalin had been around then, I would have been put on it intravenously.
I wouldn't have had the self-awareness nor the moxie to write the letter I posted on PsychologyToday.com to any of my teachers but perhaps your seeing it will
help parents who are trying to get the teacher to accommodate to their active child rather than putting him on that risky Ritalin leash.
