UPDATE: 2/19/13 – just reviewing this post and noticed that the site I linked to below has been taken down! YAY!
This is EXACTLY what parents of children with invisible disorders are subject to on a daily basis.
I was researching blogs tagged with ADHD and came across this blog post. It appears to be a regurgitation of the ‘definition’ of ADHD from the CDC website…
EXCEPT for the addition of the first paragraph. You’ll love this. It says:
“I run into parents a lot that claim their child has ADHD. Often times I think they use that as an excuse for bad behavior, that somehow giving the bad behavior a label justifies it.”
When I commented on the post, the author just obviously doesn’t get why this paragraph is offensive.
What do you think? Offensive or not?
I, for one, will not be shopping at the website they are obviously associated with.
