A show titled "The Medicated Child".
I was just about to email a couple of our friends on the
board about the program when I saw your Post. I assume that
it is to be aired Nationally and not just here on the West
Coast?? Thanks again.
I'm under the impression that it's a national broadcast. You may also want to see the video I posted the link to earlier. It's also an eye opener.
I checked my local listings, I can't find it here, that sounds like something I would like to see.
I get 2 PBS stations. Sometimes they do the same show at different times. Check the TV Guide channel at 9 and then 10.
I stayed up beyond my "beddy bye" time to watch the program
last night! Was very much worth it. I'm sure you saw it also.
Very informative and objective. "Frontline" always gives us
something to consider and weight without prejudice. Thanks
again for the reminder to all our friends.
I did notice something that all the kids shown had in common: JUNK FOOD
Unfortunately, the stuff is used as a "pacifier". I see "lil
kids all the time in strollers with small bags of chips etc.
on their laps or carbonated heavily sugared soft-drinks. A
diabetes epidemic is already upon us. Parents don't seem to
realize that they are promoting a possible early death for
their child. Elders can't smoke around them but somehow it's
"OK" to feed them harmful excesses. (??)
I believe the program last nite can or will be available
on the PBS.ORG download soon if not already for those who
missed it last night.

I didn't think to notice if these kids spent any time outdoors getting fresh air, excercise and play.
