With more than four million children now on behavior modifying medications - some starting as young as two years old - "Frontline" continues its investigation into the controversial practice of medicating kids. Are the drugs safe? How young can you detect mental illness in a child? Is medication really the answer? As the debate grows more fierce, "Frontline" confronts psychiatrists, researchers and big pharma about the risks and benefits of prescription drugs for troubled children. (CC, Stereo, 1 year)
