Therefore, according to the latest studies of some organizations such as children protection, spanking can create physiological problems such as depression in a child. It makes parents believe that spanking children can harm their children. Spanking children is not a good way to discipline them because children can get some mental problems. For example, children who are usually spanked by their parents believe that they hate them, so children get depression because of spanking. Children can also get mental problems because of spanking such as killing themselves.

Running head: The Medicated Child The Medicated Child Abstract In this report, I am going to place my views on a PBS television documentary called Frontlines, The Medicated Child. The documentary show the large increase in children who have the diagnosis of ADHD that are believed by many doctors to be misdiagnosed and indeed thought to have bipolar disorder. I will express my viewpoint on prescribing anti-psychotic medications and my disbelief on the parents of these children. The Medicated Child The video on the Medicated Child made me mad and quite sad that there are parents in this world that are so willing to give their children anti-psychotic medications with little or no knowledge on what they are putting in their bodies. It was stated several times that these anti-psychotic medications are used to treat adults with bipolar disorder and their side effects have never been studied in children, so these parent are using their children as what I would call a “lab rat” some sort of science experiment, unbelievable!
They will also lack people to confide in or go to for advice Child neglect, often overlooked, is the most common form of child maltreatment. This has a major impact on a child’s development. Most perpetrators of child neglect are the parents themselves. The physical, emotional and cognitive developmental impacts from child neglect in any childhood can be detrimental as the effects from neglect can carry on into adulthood. By the time a child reaches the age of six if he / she has experienced neglect his/her chances of having overall poor physical health increases .Infants can develop poor physical health if neglect starts even before the child I born.

There was an inability to deal with many different stimuli at once. They had a low tolerance for frustration and had difficulty structuring information. They were easily overwhelmed by new information (Rist, 1990). The same symptoms were repeatedly seen by the researchers who have followed crack-exposed infants from birth. The New York Times recently reported: The most severely affected children suffer from seizures, cerebral palsy, or mental retardation.
Birth Defects enable the child to be fully developed. Babies born with a meth addiction can Suffer from low birth rate, tremors, attention deficit disorder, and other birth defects.

(Thomas, 2005) The bulk of children in foster care have already suffered from an abusive past, so the goal of the system is to put them into a safer environment. Unfortunately that is usually not the case because of the multiple homes that foster children are constantly being switched to the chances of being put into an abusive surrounding is increased.
Many children turn to anorexia to lose weight. This can scar a child for life. This condition brings on feelings of guilt, lack of self worth, and loss if they do not get the results that the media promises comes with the new body. Parents have the ability to see the changes in their children. The mitigation should immediately to confer with a doctor.
The video, “The Medicated Child,” is a PBS documentary on the rising numbers of children diagnosed with significant mental disorders, from ADHD to Bipolar disorder. This also shows the significance of heavy medication of those children with largely untested drugs. Something that was only touched on briefly by one specialist is that these untested drugs are being pumped into our children with little- to no- testing for the effects on children, in general, as the human brain is still vastly not understood and to introduce stimulants and depressants into a developing brain is borderline insane itself, and worth of a disgnosis for heavy medication itself. When interviewing the representative of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), he stated
