With medication, you have to be worried about side effects that can possibly occur. Everyone knows about Ritalin because it has been on the market for more than 50 years. Ritalin though, has its own effects on the human body that can be detrimental in the long run. Children are taught at a young age that drugs are not the solution to their problems and not to take the easy way out when things are becoming hard to handle. As parents, teachers, and doctors we are medicating these children with mild and severe bouts of ADD or ADHD and not taking the time to figure out the problem.
Some of these negative effects are: the child does not understand the reasons to behave appropriately, but instead avoids the behavior in fear of spanking, spanking in 3-year-olds can lead to far more aggression at age 5, and it's a form of discipline that becomes less effective with repeated use. Spanking doesn’t allow children to learn the reasons why to act appropriately. When parents use physical punishment, such as spanking, to discipline their children, they do so in order to improve their child’s behavior. According to a report composed by a lead researcher in the field of pediatrics, spanking does not teach children the reason for why they are being punished or why their behavior was wrong. Spanking teaches children to act in a desired way only because of fear of being punished.

The over prescription of mostly un-needed ADHD medication will only cause issues for children who are given these medications to moderate their behavior. Giving children who may not even have ADHD, medication as an easy treatment is not a solution to a behavioral condition that will last throughout their lifetime. The over prescription of medication is hindering the abilities and possibilities of children who do not truly need the medication. The number of individuals with ADHD continues to grow and while doctors continue to hand out prescriptions without a real evaluation, individuals on medication to control their behavior cannot be the only solution.
