Should You Medicate Your Child's Mind?: A Child Psychiatrist Makes Sense
of Whether To Give Kids Psychiatric Medication.
Marlowe: Avalon, dist. by Publishers Group West. May 2006. c.288p. index.
ISBN 1-56924-333-6. pap. $15.95. PSYCH
What kind of information do parents want when deciding whether to give their
child psychiatric medicine? Presumably, they are looking for timely, accessible
advice from experts, which is just what these books provide (Kalikow and Roberts
are both experienced child psychiatrists). In addition, they want information
that is specific to their situation. Someone struggling with a hyperactive or
aggressive child probably doesn't have the patience or the energy to read about
the symptoms and treatments of depression. Roberts's book is better on this
count, as it is arranged into chapters devoted to particular disorders and
medications. Much of the same material is covered in Kalikow's guide, but it is
scattered throughout the narrative. Indeed, Kalikow states that his goal is to
illuminate the thought processes of a doctor as he makes choices about
medication, not to list the uses and side effects of drugs. Yet it's nice to
have something interesting to read, and Kalikow's book is definitely the
livelier of the two, containing numerous anecdotes and a more in-depth look at
the parents of one patient, "Rosie," as they struggle to decide how to help
their anxious daughter. Neither book is a crucial purchase, though even the
smallest libraries should have a few more specialized titles-at the minimum, one
on childhood depression, one on anxiety disorders, and one on ADHD. For larger
public libraries needing more material, these current titles are good
supplementary works, with the Roberts book more likely to be checked out
regularly.-Mary Ann Hughes, Neill P.L., Pullman, WA
