I'm not sure that I agree with everything the writer has to say. In fact, I always thought Claire was one of the rare kids to be dx'd with childhood bipolar disorder. For our daughter, it's not about temper tantrums. It's more about her inability to function in society because she spends more time talking to the imaginary cartoons in her head, than she does to humans. These are her "mania" states...where she's completely out of touch with reality. Yes, she does have meltdowns...but those are not what brought about the diagnosis.
