[Communication Summit] Dr. Marilyn Wedge: Pills Are Not For Preschoolers
Before you let the well-ironed white coats of the world pull out their prescription pad with the promise of more compliance and cooperation in the classroom, how about you take the time to have a conversation with your child to find out what’s going on? How does she feel? What’s she concerned about?
Was there anything she didn’t understand in class that might be causing her to feel distracted? When were things going well? What happened when it changed? When classrooms are over-crammed and moms are on the run chasing the eternal to list, some kids just aren’t getting the care in the classroom or the attention at home that they need. Here to help make sense of what’s really going on for some of our children and prove that pills are not for preschoolers, is Dr. Marilyn Wedge!
