Synopsis

Today, millions of American children are being prescribed powerful behavior modifying drugs such as Ritalin, Prozac, Paxil and Zoloft. But are these medications really necessary and safe for young children or merely a harried nation's quick fix for annoying, yet age-appropriate, behavior? The program investigates the rapidly growing use of psychoactive drugs by children and the challenges of parenting and schooling in a world of high stress and increasing family disintegration.
