Know the truth and the truth will set you free! Dont be discouraged if teachers or doctors have labeled your child. There is hope and there is another way. Read this book to see your options and what you can do with or without medicating. Every parent, grandparent, teacher, doctor and coach should read this book and be aware of the many choices before medicating a child. This book would even be helpful to an adult with ADD/ADHD.
