Little people, lots of pills: Experts debate medicating kids by Madison Park
Hey everyone. I wanted to share the story I was interviewed for by CNN.
It’s about medicating children and as many of you are aware, Gavin is a perfect example of children that NEED medication. While reading this it’s VERY important to keep in mind that Gavin is an extreme case. MOST children will never need this amount of medication but some will. With Gavin, we have an army of top specialists for everything. Everyone works together for Gavin’s best interest. It’s also VERY important to understand that Gavin is medicated for his benefit and quality of life. While it does make life easier for everyone, Gavin’s safety (as well his younger brothers) and quality is our paramount concern. Anyone that takes the time to get to know us knows we don’t take medication lightly. With Gavin, medication is simply a part of his life.
