   Some helpful tips for kids with ADHD
Thanks for the tip, Jen. It's just that I had ADHD and couldn't finish .
   all the important information you should know about your child with ADHD as a parent
I am the proud parent of two boys with ADHD. One of the many frustrations I have is with family and friends who don't understand these kids at all. Pauley, Jr., said the book was "a great explanation of everything." However, this book also provides a clear, concise approach to addressing your child's common issues with ADHD. It also deals with problems in school, with electronics, friends, how to manage emotions, strategies for executive functioning difficulties. There is variety in how the information is presented, with quotes, stories, charts, and diagrams to keep it for the reader with different reading and learning styles. The information is based on available resources and is therefore not considered to be unreliable. The author is so compassionate and I truly believe that ADHD is a disorder.
   Every Parent Should Read This Book!!!
Every parent should be given this book when their child is diagnosed and then reread it every couple of months. Every teacher, administrator, and youth volunteer in the country should read this book. Every time I read it, I pick up something new to consider or have an ah-ha moment. I've read so many ADHD books to help raise my son to the best of my ability, Tunick said. This one I love because it has very practical, use immediately techniques and shares experiences you can immediately relate to and consider, said Blair. Easy to take in, Mr. Rule told us. Two additional sets of these have been bought for friends whose little ones have been diagnosed with “gifts” from the government.
   Must read!!!!!
Facts and figures cited by AOL were correct. The Harrisons are real patients, doctors say. Tools are often used to help with the problem. Validation is required before any modification is made. This book has touched so many people, and I am very thankful for this book. Yes, I am learning. Now that I have this book, I feel like I have some control over helping my child and my family, Blair said.
   Great book on ADHD
We purchased this book to help us understand our son's ADHD and behavior issues. Really helped us to understand more of what is going on, he said.
   Amazing tips written in a digestible way!
Yes, I'm busy, and I'm sure you are too. We have a child with ADHD and that's exhausting, too. Thank you, Lord, for the book, it's truly there to help you. Easy to implement, recommend. Thanks so much for the compliment, said Blair. Dr. Saline goes in depth on techniques and emphasizes collaboration and persistence, even when the situation calls for it. KEY is the only one who can say they have a bullet proof car. He added: "I feel like I've been heard and my prayers have been answered. If you enjoyed the book, I would recommend it to anyone.
   Presents Complex Material in Accessible Language
As a clinician and parent, I am thrilled with Dr. Saline's new book. She has done a wonderful job of synthesizing complex material and presenting it in language and most importantly with kindness, empathy, and smarts. Many parents struggle with understanding their child's behavior and therefore have difficulty empathizing with them and feeling empowered to help them navigate the challenges they face, he said. The book both offers a road map for parents and wonderful stories from the mouths of young people engaged in understanding their brains. She also offers clear, concrete suggestions for parents and kids to help them create new patterns with their thinking, feeling and behaviors.
   I Wish I'd Had This Book Earlier!
As a parent of two children with ADHD, I wish I'd had it earlier. Even though I'm sure that many parents will find the advice very helpful, what really moved me was how it explained how it works in the brain and the subjective experience of children with ADHD. Many of the struggles and frustrations that I went through are illuminated here. The book is extremely readable, and I'm very grateful for the opportunity to write it. I pretty much got through the whole thing in about two days, even though I found this book a little bit late, because I have another child at home who doesn't have ADHD, Ms. Booher said. One of the beautiful things about the book is that the empathy and the way of thinking that it fosters is extremely helpful to parents of all children, Raymond said. As I was reading through the second and third chapters, I found myself thinking of my other child as well.
