RE: Ritalin myth busted- Princeton study reveals the hurtful, nocive side of the pill
My little cousin (he's 10) came over today and he's always been a competitive, hyper and aggressive child, qualities I liked seeing in him and tried to promote whenever I saw him. Anyway, he's been taking ritalin since the last time I saw him and the change is disturbing. He used to always challenge me to fights, and to go against him in video games and whenever he lost he'd be really upset, but would want to keep going. Now, he won't even play against me, he just plays games in training mode, where he can't lose. He used to have a big mouth a talk quite a bit of shit, but you could tell it was coming from a place of pride/confidence in his abilities, now he just sits there, quite, tame even. He doesn't say very much and when he does he almost sounds/acts a bit like a zombie.

I'm not gonna challenge his parents as it's not my place, but it's sad seeing what small boys are becoming. I guess I sort of understand them taking ritalin while in class, but on the weekend while hanging out with his older cousin? His doctors/parents are seriously going overboard.
