Parenting Children with ADHD: 10 Lessons that Medicine Cannot Teach ($14.95)
by Vincent Monastra
Parenting Children With ADHD: 10 Lessons That Medicine Cannot Teach shows parents how to build a successful parenting program at home. Drawing from his experiences in evaluating and treating thousands of children and teens with ADHD, Dr. Vincent Monastra presents 10 "lessons" that are essential for promoting the success of kids with ADHD." In simple language, he explains the causes of ADHD and how nutrition, medication, and parental guidance can improve attention, concentration, and behavioral control. Recognizing the importance of school success, Dr. Monastra also outlines the educational rights of children with ADHD and ways to work with school districts to get your child the help he or she needs. Finally, this book describes nonconfrontational ways to teach your child essential life skills like organization, problem solving, and emotional control.
"There is no substitute for experience, and this author shares his vast clinical and research experience and expertise in working exclusively with children and teens with ADHD. The book sets itself apart from the sometimes crowded field of ADHD literature by offering a novel "nonmedication/lessons-oriented" approach to the management and treatment of ADHD. Extremely helpful are the various supplemental worksheets, charts, and checklists that are intended to assist parents and other professionals in their efforts to help children and teens with ADHD to better organize and structure their lives."
