My oldest had trouble concentrating if he didn't have some form of caffine (energy drinks). He would have been kicked out of school if not for them. A sure way to tell if some kids have ADHD

I have never drank a red bull or anything like it myself but why anyone would let their kids have these things is baffling.

In our case, I didn't give them to my boys but they got them from their friends whose parents did buy them. I found out that giving my oldest caffine helped him sleep and pay attention in school. Instead of meds he would drink a cup of tea or coffee before school. This wasn't until he was a teen though.

Didn't honey boo boo's mother hype her daughter up before those tots and tiaras thingees to give her daughter a buzz and some pizzaz.

Brittany Spears also was a Red Bull fan... These kids want what the celebrities have to perk them up. And some of those things have so much caffein that in excess it can kill.
