comment To medicate or not to medicate?
Thanks! Edited. Our family doctor looked at him for 5 mins and said he was not ADHD, but referred us to a child psychiatrist because we insisted. After testing and diagnosis, the C.Psych encouraged medication in order to prevent social maladjustment, which isn't happening. Now, I'm starting to be concerned about academic progress, but I don't want to give my child drugs. The teachers and the doctors might say there is no stigma associated with this, but there is. I'm looking for non-medical opinions on how other people decided.

comment How can I teach my child not to be greedy?
I would suggest that you rephrase your question to something like "how do I teach my child not to be greedy". It seems like your concern is commercialism.
