In a bit of horrifying news out of Florida, a mom of a 6-year-old boy is accused of drugging his yogurt with Adderall in order to gauge whether it changed his behavior. She was arrested after she asked the teacher to report back any changes. Her son did not have a prescription for the drug, which is often prescribed to treat ADHD in children.
She is now facing child abuse charges and while there is no doubt what she did was illegal and immoral and wrong, it's also sort of sad. Clearly she was worried about her child and hoping, in this depraved, sick, and twisted way, that she might help him get better.
It doesn't make it right, but it does make it all the more sad. Why she didn't just take him to the doctor I guess we don't know. So many questions.
