- May 3, 2012Aahhh. The old "let's take the required break from ADHD meds while Johnny is at Summer Camp" trick. Had it happen a couple of times. Never fun, especially when they don't let the leaders know their boy is ADHD and on meds in the first place. Johnny goes berserk and no one can figure out why until they have him packed up and ready to go home early.

I guess what I really don't understand is the mentality of parents who just don't stop and think and do what is best for their children. And not just in scouting.......

Thanks for getting back to me and yes, meds are always gonna be a problem for "volunteers"; as for your latter issue, if a youth needs his meds, but refuses, then it's time a parent gets involved and maybe attend events with the boy, something you CAN easily require.
We've also run into parents that stop meds for some youth with ADHD issues,
