Dr. Anne Buchanan helps us sort that out. Parents are often concerned about giving stimulants to their kids and teens. We have ideas to help you talk with parents and collaborate with them. Anxiety disorders are rampant, and the AACAP featured anxiety for their first Clinical Practice Guideline, a new approach to better consolidated advice. The results offer broad guidance for treatment. This issue also includes research on mood and boredom in ADHD and on the efficacy of combined pharmacotherapy/polypharmacy for ADHD. We planned this ADHD issue long ago, but as we go to press there are more child refugees abroad and, at home, actions targeting parents who support gender-affirming care. Always so much happening—we welcome your thoughts.
