Parent A wants to have child on meds the lowest dose is what the doctor would prescribe. Parent B is against the drugs and says the child doesnt need drugs just extra attention and other non drug remedies. Parent A wants judge to decide, taking away any opinion from Parent B. Parent B wants courts to stay out this decision. Either way this is not a life threatening medicine and both parents may have valid points, but how are courts handling this today in California. This isnt something for a judge to always decide are there any cases to cite as examples for Parent B to say the state doesn not have a right to order a child to be medicated in ADD especially at this low dose level? This is am extreme case in Michigan where mom is winning now. http://www.cchrint.org/2013/04/23/modern-day-heroes-detroit-mother-maryanne-godboldo-attorney-allison-folmar/
