A Washington state father’s TikTok video went viral after he claimed that his son’s high school prescribed the teen anti-depressants without informing the parents.
Eli Holt, a Snohomish resident, who sends his son to “the high school” said in the video, “I get a call today from the counselor at the high school, they proceed to say, ‘Your child, 15 years old, did not pick up his anti depressants at the end of the school year.” “I said, ‘He’s not on antidepressants, what are you talking about? My kid is not depressed.'” Lib of TikTok shared a video of the father on Twitter. “They proceed to tell me that they had a psychiatrist come to the school and give my kid antidepressants. He’s been on them for several months and I had no knowledge.”
“I knew nothing about it. Come to find out, it’s 100 per cent legal. They can do whatever they want with our kids in Washington State within the school program.”
Holt claimed his 15-year-old son thought his father knew about the pills being prescribed because he usually has a “good line of communication” with the school.
In a follow up video, Holt slammed the school for allegedly giving his son the medication without knowing his medical history.
Holt said, “What if I was allowing him to have a glass of wine at home at dinner? Not that I am, but what if I was?”

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We have a Giving Fuel page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
