Editorial Reviews

Booklist
...here's a book filled with the experiences of hundreds of parents of ADHD children gathered via surveys by the author.
Library Journal
This well-written book provides guidelines, suggestions, and advice to help parents interact with their children who have Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Although opening chapters define the ADHD symptoms and resources for the parent, the major focus is on preventing (or managing) misbehavior, working with teachers, and providing a stable and nurturing family atmosphere for the family of the ADHD child-both parents and siblings. Many of the recommendations and tips come from other parents as well as pediatricians, counselors, and teachers. Alexander-Roberts wisely stresses that every ADHD child reacts differently and that many techniques may be needed to parent the child. An appendix lists further reading and helpful support organizations. Though numerous books have been written on ADHD in recent years, such as The Hyperactive Child Book (LJ 3/1/93) and A Parent's Guide to Attention Deficit Disorders (LJ 10/1/91), this work stands out as a family management guide. Highly recommended for parenting collections in all public libraries.-Kay Brodie, Chesapeake Coll., Wye Mills, Md.

    I wish I read the book two years ago!

    REVIEW OF ADHD PARENTING HANDBOOK BY COLLEEN ALEXANDER ROBERTS Foreword by Bruce A. Pasch, MD ISBN# 0878338624 If you don¿t believe that ADHD exists or that your kid could actually have ADHD, you must read this book!! Through a thorough compilation of hundreds of interviews of parents coping with the agonizing and frustrating TASK of raising a difficult child, this book makes it easy to recognize and understand the universal symptoms and challenges of ADHD For myself this book is truly the BIBLE of parenting. There is advice to help with school mornings, bedtime, and bathtime, eating out at restaurants, tantrums, traveling with your child and trying to talk on the phone when your son or daughter is in the house. In the chapter Problems That Drive You Wild, some of the case studies and references were described with such clarity that I had to ask myself, ¿Did these people spend an afternoon with my daughter?¿ There are extensive resources for interfacing with your child¿s school and advocating for their academic success. You are actually helped walk through the maze of educational bureaucracy. This is probably the ONLY book that I myself have read that gives you strategies for feeding your child while they are taking medication for ADHD. If your child has shown a dramatic improvement while on medication this will be very important to you. I only wish that I had found this book two or three years ago, when I realized that my child had special needs. Yet one can not look back; I hope that those of you who are reading this review will benefit by the knowledge it can provide you.

    Best of the Bunch

    I buy a lot of books on ADHD, trying to find help in dealing with my 10 year old son. This is the best one I have found. It also has a rare section on detection of ADHD in infants. I found it interesting and heartbreaking because it described my 2 year old daughter's infancy to a T. I thought she was just a very high needs, difficult baby. Now I know it could be more.
