When a child has been diagnosed with or shows the symptoms of ADHD, parents emotions probably swing from sadness to frustration to anger on a daily, if not hourly, basis.

The difficulties of parenting a hyperactive, disorganized, inattentive, forgetful, aggressive child may threaten to overwhelm them.

When the author heard that same diagnosis for his own son years ago, he recognized that he himself had struggled with many of those symptoms throughout his childhood and adult life. He also decided that he needed to return to school to learn more about the disorder so that he could help not only his own son but other families with such children. Dr. Frank E. Bowers is now the proud parent of a successful adult son and has counseled thousands of families raising children with ADHD.

With a father s insight and a clinician s knowledge, Dr. Bowers examines the challenges a child with ADHD presents and offers parents workable, effective ways of handling the behavior problems. He reminds parents that, despite the diagnosis, children need to be held responsible for their actions and he suggests how to use positive discipline strategies to help them learn better behavior.

In this book, parents will discover how to address their child s issues at school, at meals and bedtime, with siblings and peers, and out in public. The tools Dr. Bowers provides can empower frustrated or fearful parents to approach raising a child who has ADHD with renewed hope and confidence.

Review:

Dr. Bowers has produced a gem of a self-help book that offers parents a rare combination of scientifically validated treatment advice delivered in a common sense commentary, infused with the wisdom of a father who has dealt with this issue on a very personal level. I highly recommend that any parent who is struggling to raise a child with ADHD pick up this book and give it a read. They won't be disappointed. --Michael Handwerk, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist, Harrisburg Medical Center, IL
