‘there are more and more cases of ADD among children [in the US], one in five to be exact...so what is going on?...The brain [of the ADD child] is busy, busy, dealing with the pain’ from ‘childhood’, ‘where there was no [real, unconditional] love’, only ‘conditional love’ where, for example, ‘parents wanted smart kids’ to fulfil their own insecure ego’s desire for reinforcement; with the result that ‘when there is stimulation from the outside...it meets with a very active brain which says, “Whoa there. Stop the input. I have too much going on inside to listen to what you ask for”.’ Janov concluded, ‘you know, ADD is also called the hyperactivity disorder (ADD HD: Hyperactive Disorder). Of course, the kid is agitated out of his mind, driven by agony inside. We want her to focus on 18th century art and she is drowning in misery.’
