It Makes One Wonder
We are naturally social creatures, born with a natural need for human fellowship and human friendship.
Over the years I have met numerous single adults who believe in God and were active in a church in the past, but will not attend church now because they
know from experience and observation that being a single Christian often means living life as an outcast.
It is ironic that in so many churches the social needs of children, teenagers who live with their families, and married couples are readily recognized and addressed,
while oftentimes the solo adults are left out (often conspicuously). All too often those who do recognize the social needs of single adults insist on segregating the single

Another look att ADD & ADHD
I do not claim expertise, nor am I attempting to diagnose anyone's child. I also acknowledge that there are psychological maladies with a medical or biological basis.
I am simply encouraging everyone to study this matter further.
All too often children are being diagnosed with ADD based on little or no examination merely because they exhibit childish attitudes or undisciplined behavior, such as cases where a doctor determines that a child has ADD/ADHD even though the child in question can give a television, videogame, board game, phone conversation (depending on who called), etc., undivided attention for hours at a time. This naturally arouses suspicion that many are quick to classify undisciplined behavior as a disease in order to justify criminalizing the corporal punishment of children and other liberal/socialist agendas.
Some of the studies and claims on this remind me of an episode of the old "WKRP IN Cincinatti" TV show in which a psychiatriat (who turned out to be a quack) being interviewed on the air insisted that all children are mentally insane because they are childish.
