Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two titlesboth from authors who have experience parenting a child with attention deficit disorders and working as professionals in the fieldjoin a growing body of literature on parenting AD(H)D children. The books are similar in layout: early chapters define attention deficit disorders and their diagnosis, a substantial middle section covers strategies for managing a child's behavior, and concluding chapters and appendixes present additional materials for parents. Although many of the strategies and definitions are common to both books, differences of tone and style exist. Boyles and Contadino use more anecdotal and personal examples and stress the role of parent as child advocate. Flick clearly draws more on his position as a professional in the field, adapting a 12-step plan that parents can implement. Both books are recommended for parenting collections in public libraries; Flick's book is also recommended for community college and undergraduate libraries.Kay L.
