In today's society we have become so preoccupied with mundane things that we have lost sight of our treasure- our children. In every aspect of society, children are receiving less than what they deserve. Quality time and affection are lacking in families. It is few moments that we take to seek to understand their emotional world and to truly expand our relationship. The education system has failed our children by training them to become good test takers but now endowing them with real skills to succeed and not providing them opportunities to explore their own strengths and inner qualities. It is no wonder that psychiatric diagnoses such as ADHD abound in American society. However, the attention deficit is often not with our children but is rather with the society itself. We have failed to give our children the needed attention. As a result, they react in various ways, sometimes hostily, in order to alert us to our distress. Instead of hearing their distressed voices, we instead resort to drugging them or ordering them into submission to a disordered world.
