Good perspective Jan 12, 2008
Looking for a different perspective on ADHD? Here it is. The book doesn't try to whitewash the very real concerns of ADHD, yet manages to reveal some positive aspects. And it provides some coping strategties and "lessons learned" that can benefit the whole family.
I dont know Sep 5, 2006
When I started reading this book I thought it was great that the authors used many examples from their lives and the lives of their kids. But throughout the book I felt I was learning more and more about the lives of the kids in their family rather than about ADHD. There are much better books out there for ADHD than this one.
I do have to say that the chapters that the docotr wrote were great (the Q&A one and the ones about treatments). Good job doc!
A Must Have! Apr 13, 2006
This book is an absolute must have for any parent who is struggling with a child with ADHD! My son was diagnosed 3 years ago and I have done tons research and read many books on the subject in that time! Most books say pretty much the same things - your child has a disability- not so this book! The book's unique way of looking at the issue, stems from one of the authors (Dennis Swanberg) actually having ADHD himself as well as both he and the Co-author Diane Passno raising children of their own with ADHD. After you have read this book you will realize that your child isn't disabled at all and you will have a new understanding of this "disorder" and your child.
The Good About ADHD Sep 29, 2005
This book showed the positive side of individuals with ADHD and offered some excellent advice. These are unique individuals with many gifts.
A Big Sigh of Relief Dec 11, 2003
Parents of children with ADHD who have struggled with knowing what to do and what not to do can breathe a big sigh of relief as they read through this book. It is not a cure-all, but it does let the reader know that they are not in the boat alone. They give helpful insight for parents and children. Their advice is practical and encouraging-- not trying to take any of the parenting responsibility from the parents, but also not trying to shame families who struggle everyday with the effects of ADHD on their family. The story is told from the viewpoint of parent, child, and medical professional in an easy to read and understand format. As a an elementary school principal, I will be recommending this book over and over, I know.
