    Excellent Guide for the Hopeless

    I found this book to be easy to read, and easy to implement the step involved. I finished the book in one day, and was able to implement the program the next. I saw changes in both of my children immediately (1 AD/HD the other non AD/HD)! My husband even asked me, 'Ok, where are our kids, and what have you done with them?!' I highly recommend this book for anyone with children who are exhibiting difficult behaviours.
