Credo by Mike Berger

As a psychologist, I have seen 1000
attempts to avoid responsibility
for a troubled child.

"It's a chemical imbalance; it's the schools;
it's the medication; it's uncle Harry."

In fact it may be all of these but usually
their impacts are secondary. Let me illustrate
with the ultimate copout, bringing your kid to the shrink.

You say, "Here is my kid, fix him and when
you're through give him back."

There are few things as ludicrous as shrinking
a kid's head and sending him back to the place
where the problems began.

I point out to parents the banner on my wall.
It says in large letters:

"YOU BROKE HIM; YOU FIX HIM." I'm only here to help
