Drugging kids is the easy way out

Drugging kids is the easy way out

Kids in foster care carry profound pain. It's the pain that stems from the abuse, abandonment and trauma they have experienced during their character-forming years.

This pain often is revealed in various ways: anger, depression, rebelliousness and violence. For the state, it's easier and less expensive to sedate them with medication than to help them heal.

Officials from the Florida's Department of Children & Families have finally admitted that they too often use drugs to manage troubled children rather than to treat them.

Note: But it's okay because DCF did it.
