Superparenting for ADD: An Innovative Approach to Raising Your Distracted Child Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With decades of experience working with ADD children, Dr. Edward Hallowell has long argued that ADD is too often misunderstood, mistreated, and mislabeled as a “disability.” Now he teams up with top academic ADD researcher Peter S. Jensen, M.D., to bring you an invaluable new approach to helping your ADD child. Superparenting for ADD offers a specific game plan including

 

• UNCONDITIONAL LOVE Tune out the diagnosticians and simply nourish the spirit of your child for who he is.

• VIEWING THE MIRROR TRAITS Recognize the positive sides of the negative symptoms associated with ADD: stubbornness = persistence; impulsiveness = creativity; intrusiveness = eagerness.

• THE CYCLE OF EXCELLENCE Nurture an environment in which a child can safely take risks, reserve time to let a child dabble as a way to learn, encourage playful practice, support mastery of a skill, and then recognize a child’s accomplishments.

Synopsis:

From the coauthor of "Delivered from Distraction" and the foremost academic expert on Attention Deficit Disorder comes a toolbox of strategies to help develop an ADD child's innate talents.
