At Last! A Healthy, Drug-Free Alternative to Ritalin
Nearly one-tenth of all school-aged children in the United States are being coerced into taking mood-altering drugs with side effects that include insomnia, tearfulness, rebound irritability, personality change, nervousness, anorexia, nausea, dizziness, headaches, heart palpitations, and cardiac arrhythmia. These are the children diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention deficit with hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Ritalin Is Not the Answer confronts and challenges what has become common practice and teaches parents and educators a healthy, comprehensive behavioral program that really works as an alternative to the epidemic use of medication-without teaching children to use drugs in order to handle their behavioral and emotional problems.

DAVID B. STEIN, is a practicing clinical psychologist, associate professor of psychology at Longwood College, and father of two sons who were once placed on Ritalin. His research and writings center on the diagnosis and treatment of attentional, behavioral, and motivational problems in children. For over twenty-five years he has conducted workshops providing realistic, practical, and effective alternatives to Ritalin.Review:
My faith in my profession is almost renewed! Stein not only flies in the face of conventional psychological ''wisdom'' where ADD/ADHD is concerned, but he has written a book that is completely devoid of psychobabble. Even if you don't have a child with attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, buy ''Ritalin Is Not the Answer". Thank you, Dr. Stein, for bringing a thousand rays of sunshine to America's children." (John Rosemond, Family Psychologist and Nationally Syndicated Columnist)
"This book should be read by every physician before prescribing Ritalin and is an absolute must for any parent of a child diagnosed as having ADD and ADHD." (John W. Verheul, diplomate, American Academy of Family Practice)
"Stein has years of experience at successfully treating hyperactive children without the use of drugs. Any parent who thinks his or her child may have an attention disorder (ADD or ADHD) should read this clear and practical book before seeking treatment." (Edward D. Smith, professor of psychology, Longwood College)
"At last! A book that views ADHD children as capable of learning . . . . This book not only debunks the idea that ADHD children are diseased, but it gives parents a practical step-by-step program for helping these children learn to control their own thinking and behavior." (Thomas G. Moeller, professor of psychology, Mary Washington College)
"Stein has presented an excellent guide to parenting skills that EVERY parent needs. All children, with or without ADD/ADHD, their parents and teachers will benefit from the Caregivers Skill Program." (Patty Whitfield, associate professor of special education, Longwood College)
