Why so many kids can’t sit
still in school today

Washington Post, by Valerie Strauss

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/11/2014 3:21:37 PM

The Centers for Disease Control tells us that in recent years there has been a jump in the percentage of young people diagnosed with Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder, commonly known as ADHD: 7.8 percent in 2003 to 9.5 percent in 2007 and to 11 percent in 2011. The reasons for the rise are multiple, and include changes in diagnostic criteria, medication treatment and more awareness of the condition. In the following post, Angela Hanscom, a pediatric occupational therapist and the founder of TimberNook, a nature-based development program designed to foster creativity and independent play outdoors in New England, suggests

I don´t want to click on any WaPo or NYT articles, these are not valid news sources, certainly not for anything that might involve complex facts or arguments.

This makes quite a bit of sense, we have so concentrated on testable outcomes that we have dropped everything from the curriculum that cannot be tested. Children need to move, they need to play, they need to run, they need to use scissors, they need to use pencils and crayons, none of these things can be tested so they are gradually disappearing from the school day. When I was a kid I WALKED to school. There was morning and afternoon RECESS. Lunch included a time to go outside and play. Then I WALKED home. Now children are delivered to school, usually in a car driven from home. There is no recess. Lunch is short and at some schools students are forbidden to talk with each other. Then they are picked up and driven home where they begin an afternoon of play on video devices. Is it really surprising that we have a generation of overweight children who cannot sit still? The current answer of drugging them into obedience reminds me of Brave New World.

My sister said her youngest (he´s now early 40s) had an "ants in his pants" problem in school.

She enrolled him in every sports activity she could find ... solved the problem.

The conclusion of this article is something I agree with; kids are not active enough and they need to burn off some of that excess energy.

But nowhere does the article hint at the cause of the inactivity, which is that kids spend most of every day sitting in front of a computer or an iPad or playing with their iPhones or computer games on their 60 inch TV screens.

This is also the same cause of childhood obesity. But you cannot force children to eat healthy foods like Michelle Obama wants to do, nor can you force them into at least one hour of physical activity every day. What is the answer? What is the solution?

I have no idea what the answer is but I can guess what the result will be: obese children with shorter lifespans and more psychological problems than previous generations.

In many schools they have taken the school playgrounds and turned them into parking lots for staff and/or put portable classrooms on them. And recesses were cut. The kids are expected to sit without exercising for longer periods of time.

We played very active games on the elementary school playground during several recesses a day and during the lunch hour. Very little of this any more. And many things that were the most active were banned - dodge ball, etc.

And they bemoan the fat kids and those who get restless. Most kids are restless by nature. The schools now exacerbate that.

Kids are not allowed to run on the playground blacktop in most schools. If they have a grass field they can run in, they must be closely monitored. They´re also very careful of play structures and slides.

We can blame stupid bureaucracy, but much of the blame must go to idiot parents who sue when Billy gets a scraped knee. Or when Heidi plays on the monkey bars in a way they´re not supposed to be used and ends up with a broken arm. They sue and they win. Schools are protecting themselves.

Also, school is boring. Kids don´t like it so they have a hard time sitting still for it. I do too.

Why? Try this - Sesame Street.

Think about it. For decades little kids have sat in front of the TV watching Sesame Street and learning things in 30 second entertaining skits with cuddly cute puppets. Then they go to school where class last 45 minutes or more and the learning is no longer entertaining. They´ve been programmed for learning to be fast and fun and it no longer is. Of course they´re not going to be able to sit still!

When I was growing up there was no such thing as ADHD and I never saw that kind of behavior. There was also no Sesame Street. Coincidence?

Or another leftist failure.

Most kids today wake up in a circus. They have access to so much ´stuff´ they don´t know which to do first. Those that are impoverished aren´t much different because people keep throwing free stuff at them. Between TV, video games, movies, cell phones, enough toys for ten kids, books, plus day care, then on to pre K, when do these kids get a moment of peace ? They expect to be entertained for the rest of their lives.

A sweet looking little holy terror lives nearby and the parents are so anxious to get a ´label´ and pills, it´s really sad.

These kids never know the fun of entertaining themselves or completer quiet.

Secret Service Director Julia Pierson faced a tough inquiry by lawmakers today as she appeared before a House committee to answer questions about the Sept. 19 White House security breach in which a man armed with a knife entered the executive mansion. "It´s clear that our security plan was not executed properly. I take full responsibility. What happened is unacceptable and it will never happen again," Pierson told the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in her opening remarks.

DENVER — State health officials confirmed a tenth case of paralysis affecting children who have recently had respiratory infections. Medical experts made the announcement Monday at Children’s Hospital Colorado in Aurora. Dr. Sam Dominguez says outside of the respiratory problems, there is no common link between cases. “There are no commonalities as far as where they live, schools or day cares they attend.” The hospital says before Monday, four of the children admitted tested positive for enterovirus 68, and four others for the rhinovirus (which causes the common cold). The other was not tested. The patients range in age from

The Department of Agriculture, the agency that administers the food stamp program, has announced that it will spend $31.5 million on a new program that will promote a healthy diet for recipients of the assistance. The National Institute of Food and Agriculture, a division of the Department of Agriculture, is developing the program to urge recipients of the SNAP food stamp program to choose more fruits and fresh foods. "Too many struggling families do not have adequate access to nutritious food," Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said on Monday.

Texas Gov. Rick Perry, sounding like a guy who is ready to run for president in 2016, said Tuesday that “preparation” is the key to running for the highest office in the land. Mr. Perry, who crashed out of the 2012 race for the GOP nomination, said he had been coming off back surgery at the time and simply wasn’t ready to run for the most influential position in the world. “I did not prepare,” he told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “I was a bit arrogant.” Mr. Perry, who’s finishing up 14 years as governor, is making the media rounds despite

Sen. Harry Reid Playing Major

WASHINGTON- Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has twice won elections he was supposed to lose. If Democrats maintain control of the Senate in November, much of the credit will go to the wily Nevada Democrat. Reid is not on the ballot this year, but his position as majority leader depends on Democrats denying Republicans the net six seats they need to retake the Senate. By all accounts he is working as single-mindedly toward that goal as any of his endangered incumbents. With his stooped shoulders, monotone delivery and occasionally impolitic remarks, Reid, 74, does not shine on the campaign trail. He

Rep. Donna F. Edwards is stooped in a corner fiddling with the sound system. Her event, guest-starring House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, is about to start. There is barely room to move in the small Hyattsville bakery, and side conversations are bouncing off the walls.

Almost as soon as she unseated an incumbent congressman in a Democratic primary in 2008, Edwards became all about pushing out the Democratic Party’s

With the dissolution of the Obama administration’s foreign policy in the Middle East and elsewhere, President Obama is talking as fast as he can. Obama set some kind of a land speed record for double-talk in his interview with Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes last night, highlighted by Obama’s passing the buck for his misunderestimation of ISIS to the Director of National Intelligence et al. That hasn’t gone down too well, in part because it conflicts with what one could learn from following the headlines over the past year or two. Empirical reality belies Obama’s buck-passing. Moreover, those who have

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

If the grand jury fails to indict the officer who killed Michael Brown, almost everyone here thinks things will get worse. “They’re not going to be looting next time,” said Kevin Seltzer, 30, who lives at an apartment complex near where Brown, 18, was shot. “They’re going to burn the city down.” The article highlights recent indications that the city is “far from finding peace,” including continued clashes with officers, the shooting

President Obama said the shooting death of a black teen by a white police officer last month in Ferguson, Missouri, exposed the racial divide in the American justice system that “stains the heart of black children.” Speaking at the annual Congressional Black Caucus Foundation dinner in Washington on Saturday night, Mr. Obama said the death of Michael Brown “awakened our nation” to a reality that black citizens already understood. “In too many communities around the country, a gulf of mistrust exists between local residents and law enforcement,” Mr. Obama said. “Too many young men of color feel targeted by law

For President Obama, the color of a man’s skin is far more important than the content of his character. On the night when a police officer was shot in a Missouri town torn by racial strife, the president donned a shiny tuxedo to attend a ritzy black awards dinner, where he said police nationwide are to blame for community mistrust, even claiming that “most Americans” think the country is racist. Remember, when Ferguson exploded in racial rage in August, Mr. Obama chose not to curtail his 15-day vacation, spending day after day on the golf course in the white-skinned, white-wined, millionaire playground

WASHINGTON — The Senate’s minority whip is confident about Republicans being the majority in the 114th Congress — if conservatives can set aside differences and work to combat the massive influx of donor cash that has Democratic campaigns ahead in the money race. Only in the majority, Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) stresses, can conservatives make headway on tamping down overregulation, repealing and replacing Obamacare, securing the “chaotic” border, getting Keystone XL moving, and bringing civilized debate back to the upper chamber. And only by realizing the gravity of the battle for November, he argues, can Republicans relegate Harry Reid (D-Nev.)

The Secret Service was unaware for four days that a man had fired a high-powered rifle at the White House in 2011 in a ´fumbled´ response that left the Obamas furious, says a new report. Officers allegedly performed a string of security lapses after Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez shot at least seven bullets at the executive mansion in Washington from his car. At the time, President Barack Obama, his wife Michelle and their older daughter Malia were not at home, but their younger daughter Sasha and Mrs Obama´s mother, Marian Robinson, were inside.

President Obama firmly believes the United States is better off now than when he took office, even though the American people cannot “feel” it. During an interview with 60 Minutes’ Steve Kroft, Obama said, “the country is definitely better off than when I came into office.” “When I came into office, our economy was in crisis,” Obama said. The president then cited lower unemployment, private sector job growth, and deficit cuts as evidence of his administration’s success. “I can put my record against any leader around the world in terms of digging ourselves out of a terrible, almost unprecedented financial crisis,” Obama said.

The Justice Department is expected to ban profiling by federal law enforcement. Counter-terror investigators would be barred from undercover operations in mosques or other religious institutions unless there is reason to believe criminal activity is going on there, under a new policy expected within weeks. The new rules would ban profiling based on religion, ethnicity or sexual orientation and includes no exemption for national security investigations, the Los Angeles Times reports. The announcement of the new policy to crack down on law enforcement profiling was delayed for several months because of White House
