Oh Squall, PXCL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And my other friends that study a lot about the dangers of the medical world, wait until you check out this ****.

Seriously...my mom and I were watching day time television when the commercials came on. This commercial came on. At first, we chuckled uneasily, thinking that this was some kind of joke.

Sadly, this is true.

I am absolutely HORRIFIED that people would do this to their children! It is unethical and it only over exaggerates the laziness of a lot of parents in the world. :( It's been about 5 hours since we last saw that commercial and we keep talking about how disgustingly disturbing this is.

Anyways, here is the website of this horrible "miracle". I am currently trying to find the video of the commercial that my mother and I saw.

Tantrum 911

So far, this is what happened in the commercial:

A mother and her young daughter are in the grocery store. All of a sudden, the girl falls to the floor, screaming and throwing a tantrum. A "specialist of medicine" comes onto the screen, calmly explaining how horrible tantrums are and how embarrassing (no duh). She then pulls out a small tube. She pops off the top and explains that you shove it into the child's face so that they will become drugged and "magically" stop their tantrums and put them in a calmer state. The drug is dopamine. You then see the mother, firmly holding her daughter, shoving the tube into the child's nose. She immediately gets tired and instantly calms down in a drug like state. They then show a few other children throwing tantrums, and their parents holding them firmly and shoving the tube into their faces.

Then it shows the price on the screen.

(This is how I remember the commercial. If I can find the commercial, or if one of you find it, please please please post it!)

Even if this was safe, this is still highly unethical. One, the children isn't learning anything (such as tantrums are wrong, once again, duh). Two, the parent isn't willing to teach the child that tantrums are wrong. Three, all of your problems can be solved by shoving drugs into your child's face (the kid's obviously don't have the opinion).

So, by this commercial we have learned that parents can become even lazier, children are too immature to be able to learn a lesson, and everything can be resolved by drugging your child.

DISCUSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Btw, here is one of the testimonials you can read from the website:

I was at my girlfriends house & her 1 1/2 yr. old kept crying hysterically every time her mother put her down.

I then remembered that I was still carrying Tantrum 911 in my pocket.

I immediately gave her the scent. She pushed it away & my friend helped me be able to get under her nose and you guessed it! By the 2nd inhale she immediately STOPPED!

She not only stopped she began laughing, smiling & she took more inhalations (and DEEPER ones too!).

The world is pitiful and ill.
Children who are loud tend to have more outgoing personality when they grow up.

If theu just shut all the children up, then they will only become some god damn introverts.

But Ritalin is a cure all!

That should be required for every child under 16!

:evil:

Dopamine is a drug whether it's natural or not.

And it doesn't matter if it's the 21st century or not this is still horribly wrong!

Damn, I wish I could show you guys that commercial. But I can't find it anywhere.

That's not the point, Spyhop. The point is is that whether it's natural or not, they are using it as a drug. That is wrong. IT IS VERY WRONG TO DRUG CHILDREN if it is not used for medicinal purposes (if they broke a bone, had surgery, a virus).

I'm all good for the natural stuff. Lord knows that I have used a lot of medicine for my body with the disease and all. But I try to do everything I can before I use the medicine. If you teach a child that it's okay to be doped up and it can be fixed with drugs, what do you think they're going to grow up as? They're going to have a pretty retarded mentality.

Masta, it was on the CW on 4 PM GMT.

This stupid all it tells me is that parets are not willing to discipline their children and would rather dru them, I wouldn't be surpirsed if they grew up with a messed up mind. Next they will make a drug that will instantly make the child fall asleep...or do they already have something like that?

Non-narcotic benign smells aren't drugs, and referring to them as drugs is your attempt to demonize it. Is it a crutch? Yes. Should parents be relying on it? No. Is it a drug though? No.

So you think that when a child is crying and yelling and the parents have to hold the child and force the smell to their nose and then have them be in a hypnotic state is not the effects of a drug? :rolleyes:

I like natural stuff. But natural stuff (even fragrances) can be used as a drug.

IS IT A DRUG? NO.

IS IT BEING USED AND ABUSED AS A DRUG? YES

That is my freaking point.

Here are the basic steps to be a parent:

-Drugs to keep them silent
-Drugs to keep them asleep
-Drugs to give them nutrients so they won't need to physically eat
-Drugs to prevent them from waste excretion
-Drugs to make them grow
-Drugs to make them pregnant(both genders)


and lastly,

-Drugs to get them killed


there the circle of life ^^
