    Book should be read by anyone who thinks their child is 'Beyond Difficult'

    This book is packed with information for anyone who thinks their child might be more difficult than normal. Even if your child is not Bipolar you will find very useful information on the differences between different mental disorders and specific behaviors related to each. The chapter about 'Helping Your Child Get Treatment' is a terrific resource of information pertaining to searching for and interviewing a child psychologist!

    If Your Child is Bipolar: The Parent -to-Parent Guide to Living with and Loving a Biopolar Chid

    Every parent whose child is or might be Bipolar should read this book. It helps us deal with the everyday situations we face with a Bipolar child in our family. It gives specific parenting suggestions as well as emotional support for handling tough situations, like the prejudice of your neighbors or your own parents embarrassment about having a mentally ill child. It also gives practical ideas for helping Bipolar children get up in the morning, take their meds, deal with social situations, and interact with siblings. I highly recommend it.

    This new book provides information and support that no other book out there provides. It helps parents deal with the daily struggles of parenting a Bipolar child, while other books focus on suicide and the other situations that the parent of a Bipolar child tries desperately to avoid. It focuses on making daily life easier for the Bipolar child and everyone else in the family.
