What a smug, arrogant self centred creature Mr Rudd is.
And whoopy doo he has changed his little mind.
Just a reminder...........It is not all about you Mr Rudd
This sort of article makes me so glad I am an atheist. While he may class himself as a Christian his article, which I read on his home page is pure unadulterated Catholic Aquinas argument through and through.......believe me I am able to recognise it at a mile after 13 years of catholic education.
Is there no length to which he will not go?
what was the point of releasing the article today?
I would have been happy with a simple"I've changed my mind" rather than his self centred tripe - Susan in Regional NSW
What do you know - Labor gets a bit of good polling news and up pops Rudd. The man is a narcissist who cannot help but white ant the Government. I don't believe for a second that he has changed his mind about gay marriage and I don't believe for a second that he gives a rat's about gays, or anyone else but himself. The man is a menace and I shudder to think what sort of sabotage he has planned for the election, God knows he did his level best to stop the Prime Minister from winning last time. Rudd's only interest is in Rudd and revenge. The less we see or hear of him on any subject the better. - Sly Place
'Chucky doll ...'. - great line. Just like Tony Abbotts, Kevins spots are enduring. What I cannot understand is why these politicians think their personal opinion is the guiding light. They are representatives of the people and therefore the collective views of the people should be informing their decisions. Im with Julia Gillard but cannot fathom her stance on marriage equality, - janet

It isn't easy being a parent of a child with any kind of "mental illness"! We are doing our best for our children and then along comes another survey and guess what? as usual we are doing the wrong thing. If medication helps your child after exploring all other options,why not use it? Some are lucky and find other ways of helping. Some support from the media and general public would not go astray either! I spent 10 years being asked when my child would grow out of his cerebral palsy ( they don't) and how low it was to try and get more money by claiming he had a disability. Walk a mile in our shoes people! To Concerned,I hear you; hang in there and unfortunately it is a case of keep on going and keep doing the best you are doing now. - Linda Robinson

Message to parents of grown-up children: Remember those little birds that grew up in the nest outside the window? They moved out and found their own territory to discover. But don't worry, once they have their own little ones, they will be back before you know it when you can enjoy being part of the process once again. Until then, rely on FB. - Janet G
We have 4 children, one with severe ADHD and Oppositional Defiant Disorder and some aspects of high functioning autism. The other 3 are normal and well adjusted. We have tried everything to help our child in every sphere of life since they were 2 years old and have also tried but discarded medication. There is a strong push for medication here in Australia because there is nothing else. We have constantly begged and asked for help as our child is unmanageble and prone to violent outbursts and terrible behaviours that make life at home terrible for all of us but there is nothing. He's "too high functioning" and "ADHD is not classed as a big enough disability". I have had psychs say to me that they do not know what to suggest to help us anymore after seeing them for 8 years, all they can now offer is to listen to us. We've called the police on the advice of the Drs when our child got violent yet again and the police were so sarcastic and unhelpful ( on White Ribbon day of all days) that I was in tears and sleepless for weeks. Our GP spent a week trying to get Mental Health support and called me back defeated. We could put our child in a refuge but they would not be allowed there for long due to a shortage of places and most likely come back worse after exposure to things they are too immature to handle. As a parent, all you hear is what a crap parent you are from many professionals and even other parents but I would love them to take our child for a week and see how they feel then. The relentless nature of ADHD is beyond any thing I have experienced. Medication may make some families lives bearable. We tried every natural therapy under the sun, every therapy out there, modified diet etc and there has been no change or improvement. - Concerned
