"This is a practical, easy-to-use resource for parents who want to help their children
improve attention, focus, self-discipline, and patience. Written by the world’s
leading authority on complementary medicine for children, it provides a solid
scientific basis for using natural therapies to help your child succeed. The charts and
worksheets offer you tools to realize your child’s strengths, turning stumbling blocks into
stepping stones to success.
The first chapters introduce basic concepts about ADHD and ADD, identifying
common family goals for improving their child’s attention and self-discipline. It frames
these goals as skills to be mastered, building on the child’s existing strengths. The next
chapters focus on the five fundamental strategies to achieve success (healthy habits in a
healthy habitat). These strategies include exercise, sleep, nutrition, managing behavior,
emotions, and stress, positive communication, and optimal environment. The next
chapters provide practical tools for translating these fundamentals into habits and tracking
success. Later chapters cover additional strategies such as pills (medications, vitamins,
and herbs), working with schools, counseling, biofeedback, massage, and acupuncture.
The last chapter is a handy summary. The book includes links to helpful resources and
provides over 200 references to recent scientific studies to support its recommendations."
