Children's Health: ADHD meds may be a prescription for bullying ♦ Children from chaotic homes benefit from time in child care ♦ Should pools ban certain risky dives?

Global study looks at how children respond to advantage and disadvantage In one of the first studies of its kind, a team of researchers conducted a global experiment to understand how fairness develops in different societies. Culture, as much as the need to maintain competitive standing, may play a leading role in how children learn to respond to what is fair and unfair, the team reports.
ADHD meds may be a prescription for bullying Kids and teens who take medications like Ritalin to treat attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder are twice as likely to be physically or emotionally bullied by peers than those who don't have ADHD.
Children from chaotic homes benefit from time in child care Full-time child care was associated with cognitive, behavioral and social benefits for children in poverty who live in chaotic homes. Children from highly disorganized homes showed better executive functioning, vocabularies and ability to regulate their thoughts and attention if in child care 35+ hours weekly.
Should pools ban certain risky dives? It may be pointless in curbing kids' injuries Diving restrictions do not protect divers from injuries, new research suggests. Somersault and backward facing dives, for instance, may be safe, because divers generally self-regulate based on their skill levels and risk perceptions, according to new research that raises questions about the rarely studied issue.
