Watch Those Labels

Standing in the dessert buffet line at a church thing this week, I turned to see the parents of one of my former 2-year-olds. A sweet, precocious, active little girl.

I was surprised when they described her as having OCD and ADHD. She's 3 now! No official diagnosis, but they're sure of it because she has a short attention span and is on the go all the time. (Excuse me, but isn't that what all 2- and 3-year-olds are like?)

It concerns me because they said they can't wait to get her on medication. Just not sure this little one needs to be medicated, but then I'm no expert in diagnosis.  But then again, neither are her parents.

We need to watch those labels!
