Brooke Shields was understandably upset with Tom Cruise for criticizing her use of antidepressants to ease her postpartum depression. So why did she then turn around and criticize parents for giving kids Ritalin and other medications?
Sure, some parents may be too quick to solve behavioral issues through prescriptions rather than better parenting. But many other kids have serious medical challenges and need such medications to live happy and successful lives.
Just as Cruise didn’t know Shields’ circumstances, neither is Shields in a position to judge all parents.
