Overview

Born to be Wild: Freeing the Spirit of the Hyper-Active Child by Kristi Meisenbach Boylan

Children fidget. They act up. They exhibit behavior which, in today’s society, might be called “noncompliant.” Every year, millions of these children are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder, and subsequently drugged, psychoanalyzed, and ostracized.
 
In Born to be Wild, Kristi Meisenbach Boylan tells how, with the help of an enlightened doctor and some very devoted teachers, she and her husband were able to free her son from labels and medicine. This compelling story not only offers comfort and hope to parents, but gives us a new way of thinking about the “ADD/ADHD epidemic.”
 
“Redefines what it means to be ADHD…a powerfully written story that sheds some much-needed light on a very controversial subject.”—Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys
