> In a TED talk, Ken Robinson suggests that some ADHD diagnoses, while not intended to stifle creativity, may in fact do so. I’d like to share the link with friends who are interested in these issues, but some have children on medications, and I don’t want them to feel judged. I do have one young relative who could be very annoying, but not pathological as far as I could tell. He just wanted attention. I’ve always worried that it was more for the parents’ sake that the child was put on medication. I normally resist every impulse to give unsolicited advice. Does this count?
