Overview

Parenting Children with ADHD: 10 Lessons That Medicine Cannot Teach by Vincent J. Monastra

Your son doesn't do his homework and is failing nearly all his subjects, but his teachers say he just needs to try harder. Your daughter is moody, defiant, and barely speaks to you and you're thinking it's got to be more than just a phase. You hear other parents talk about the great things their kids are doing and you wonder, "What am I doing wrong?" In this second edition of Parenting Children With ADHD, Dr. Vince Monastra provides practical, step-by-step guidance to parents looking for ways to bring out the best in kids with ADHD. He presents updated lessons about the causes of ADHD, how medications work, and the problems that sleep deficits, poor nutrition, and other medical disorders can cause. He also shares his innovative approach for improving organization, task-completion, problem- solving and emotional control. Updates in this edition include:
• new procedures and tests for diagnosing ADHD
• empirically-supported psychological treatments for ADHD, including neurotherapy
• tips for developing a safe, supportive educational environment for your child
• a new chapter on teaching life values such as kindness, generosity and compassion

This book is a must have for anyone who deals with ADD/ADHD kids. I am a grandparent, bought the book and then shared it with the parents and we have all found it very helpful, informative and written in a style that is easy to read and comprehend.

I've read so many books on ADHD since my older son was diagnosed - mountains of them. I decided to try reading summaries instead, on ParentsDigest - and that's how I found this title. This has been one of the most insightful and helpful books I've read on the subject, particularly the parts about dietary changes.

Sugar pioneered the SMARTGRADES school notebooks that contain the new learning technology, ACANDY Processing Tools, that empower students for academic success. She transformed my kids into Grade A students, so I speak from experience, not hypothetical theory. It is not all about teaching, it is all about learning.
