Right. Of course, now they have a name for everything. A kid in class who is disruptive, doesn't work, hinders now has an ADHD label or similar and is treated with kid gloves instead of being told to 'sit down, sit up and shut up' by his/her peers. It's probably a good thing people like Mozart weren't labelled, otherwise we'd never have had all that glorious music!

Agree with you here.

Mozart, Einstein, etc. would have been loaded up on Ritalin or whatever and shuttled off the special ed classes.

There now seems to be a label and accompanying pharmaceutical for every behavior that strays one millimeter away from the expected norm.
