Government Takes Ohio Child After Parents Disagree With School’s ADHD Diagnosis

Brandon Morse, The Blaze

One set of parents in Ohio is outraged after Child Protective Services took their child from his home on what many would call extremely flimsy grounds. According to these parents, CPS removed their 7-year-old child from their home after they refused to have their child diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder on the school’s insistence.

Camden Maple is a typical young boy, according to his stepmother, Katie Maple. He’s energetic and “rambunctious,” acting out in class when he gets bored “like children sometimes do.” According to her, the Bowman Primary School in Lebanon, Ohio believes his rambunctious side stems from ADHD. According to the Maples, Camden’s behavior stems from not being challenged in the classroom.

Todd Yohey, Superintended of Bowman Primary, refused to comment as to  what disruptive behaviors Camden exhibited that caused the school to suggest a doctor’s visit, citing confidentiality laws.

According to the Maples, the school attempted several times to get the Maples to have their son diagnosed with ADHD and medicated, but they refused. As Katie Maple stated on her GoFundMe page, “we as parents do not have the problems the school claims to have with him, at home. We know how to deal with a rambunctious 7 year old, but the school is content with making him believe that he is a bad child, we disagree.”

Maple says on her GoFundMe that one day, Camden was sent into the counselor’s office after he was allegedly disruptive, and decided to get a rise out of her.

The last week of February Camden got sent to the office for being disruptive in class. Upon meeting with the school counselor, Camden stated that he was upset because he felt that he was bad and wanted to erase himself from the earth. The counselor asked him how he would do that and he stated that he would stab himself in the eye with a knife. My husband immediately went to school and got Camden. We had a long conversation with him when he got home to find out what was going on. Camden said that he did not want to hurt himself and just said that because he was upset and wanted to see what the counselor would say. The school thought we should have taken him to the hospital emergency room for a mental health evaluation, but upon assessing the situation and speaking to him at home, it was clear to us that he posed no threat to himself and just said it to get a rise out of the counselor. He has never said anything about harming himself prior to this incident or after. This was one time, one day…most likely repeating something he heard somewhere.

The parents’ refusal to take the boy to the hospital for evaluation reportedly did not sit well with the school, who had an official call the Maples the following morning, asking what the parents and the boy talked about when they got home. The Maples refused to give any details into the family conversation with Camden, saying it was private family business.

This apparently caused the school to call CPS.

When America Was Truly The Land Of Opportunity

For [early immigrants] America was truly the land of opportunity. For the first time in their lives, many were truly free to pursue their own objectives. That freedom released the human energies which created the United States. There were few government programs to turn to and nobody expected them. But also there were few rules and regulations. There were no licenses, no permits, no red tape to restrict them. They found, in fact, a free market, and most of them thrived on it.
