Timimi, Sami. Naughty Boys: Anti-Social Behaviour, ADHD, and the Role of Culture

Boys in the West are being labeled as having psychiatric disorders, behavior problems and special educational needs, and are receiving psychiatric drugs in ever-greater numbers. In this book, Dr. Timimi argues that this crisis reflects a fundamental ambivalence that Western culture has toward children which affects boys in particular. Using material from diverse sources, the author shows how Western Society’s political, social and economic value system is bad for families and children, and how positive alternatives can be found in non-Western traditions.
