All parents will be familiar with the frustration of trying to pacify a disobedient toddler from time to time.

Note: Seems to me they have just found yet another excuse for our ever growing nation not to take responsibility for our own action.

The answers to everything wrong in a person today is explained away by a syndrome and solved with drugs. While the "Specialist" and Pharmaceutical are laughing all the way to the bank we are facing a nation of drugged up children and adults unable to take responsibility for any of their actions as they are told "it is not your fault"

Even If you cheat on you other-half you are no longer a DOG but instead a sex attack so it is not your fault you never got the right treatment. There are more syndromes today than ever before and they keep on coming, Soon they will have the excuse to drug everyone in the country one way or another.

Whatever happened to RIGHT and WRONG, we all learn it, some of us choose to live by it. We are supposed to learn from mistakes to make us stronger but how is that possible when NOW you are drugged and told it is not your fault?
