PARENTING THE ADD CHILD / Edition 1 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
- Kingsley, Jessica Publishers
Children with ADD or ADHD can be a parenting nightmare. They can be disruptive and destructive and do not respond to guidance like other children. Medication may reduce symptoms, but disruptive behaviour often persists. Is there anything that the parent can do?
Parenting the ADD Child brings together for the first time a variety of tried and tested methods in a unique, comprehensive and accessible format that will not be found elsewhere. It goes beyond the identification of the symptoms to tackle the changes parents can make, ensuring that behaviour problems associated with ADD and ADHD are managed and reduced.
