The usual drivel from self proclaimed "professionals". The parents ARE to blame for listening to morons who think they know about parenting (like the quack Dr. Spock) and not slapping their kidís butts when they need it. Parents do not spend time with their children. They may be in the same house, but that means nothing. Everyday you can read in the paper about 14-16 year olds being picked up by police because they are at parties or whatever with older punks drinking as well as other things. Are these the same kids that are supposed to be spending time with their parents? Most parents couldn't care less where their kids are as long as they're not bothering them. Its time these morons quit taking the blame off everyone just so everyone can feel good about themselves. If you as a parent don't know where or with who your children are, or if you don't care, you are to blame when they grow up to be brats and little criminals. If you as a parent won't discipline your brat when they need it, then you are to blame for their rotten attitudes when they're older. I don't mean a time out for the little angels either. It has never hurt a kid to whack their butt when needed, and is the best thing to get their attention.

My parents whopped my ass all the time, spent alot of time with me, and loved me very much.

I dont think parents are to blame ( most of the time) for a childs depression.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

I've been on Effexor from only one week but am cautiously very optimistic. Prior to this I was on citalopram but still feeling very low and sleeping poorly, feeling like I needed to be in bed 12-16 hours a day. Now I am waking naturally after only 8 hours sleep and finding it much easier to concentrate at work. I can hardly believe it is working so quickly but I feel so much better. I've had no side effects.
