    In the United States alone nearly 4.5 million children suffer from Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder, and the number is steadily increasing. For the families of these children, the stress can be overwhelming, often resulting in anxiety, depression, and divorce. Developmental pediatrician Mark Bertin addresses the overlooked problems at the core of the family unit, and guides parents on ways to create a calmer, saner, more productive environment for their child with ADHD to thrive in. Marshaling the latest research in neuroscience, Bertin shows parents how to strengthen the childs attention capability through play and improve their child's self esteem.
