Should parents give their children herbal supplements for stress and other emotions?
However, with kids, I worry that this may not be the best approach. Are we doing more harm than good if we teach children to take a pill or 'medicine' when they feel stressed, angry or sad? I understand that medicine and pills are necessary for some medical and behavioral conditions, like depression and ADHD, but this product I saw advertised focuses on "restoring balance" for "happy, healthy kids". Shouldn't we instead teach children emotional intelligence and how to regain calm without taking pills or herbal supplements? What do you think?
