On the other hand, I was bothered by several things about Wedge's proposed solution, and how she presents it. She seems to believe that family therapy is the cure for every ill, and if it doesn't work, well, either the parents weren't doing it right or they just didn't stick with it long enough. I'm not arguing that she shies away from medication too much. Rather, I believe she is somewhat blind to the bigger picture of a person's life. The family is huge, but it's not the only thing. School, work, social pressures, finances, and so many more things are also at play. Wedge seems to think parents are always in complete control of all these factors, that they can simply resolve to fix things and make it so. In one instance, a child is in distress because the family is about to lose their home, due to the prolonged financial downturn.Read more ›
I recently checked out her first book, Suffer the Children, and I am expecting the same greatness in that work as well. This book is worth the money and if parents are willing to work hard, they can change the family dynamic without chemically altering their child's brain and brain functions.
