I found this book poorly organised, and hard to read. It consists of a series of "feel good" anecdotes about how the author's techniques could supposedly assist ADHD children. I got the impression that some of the material was simply rehashed from other publications and in fact, the same text is repeated in several places throughout the book. There is no discussion of any medical or psychological detail that would help parents assess their child's situation. I would keep looking if you are trying to educate yourself further on this tricky subject.

I think this book is filled with a great philosophy about parenting. Children want there parents to assert control in a respectful way so they feel safe and loved. This book covers how to do this. After reading this you will have some techniques for loving your child in a way that empowers you so that you're not sucked into endless arguing or the victim of embarassing and needless tantrums.

I really don't know how anybody who could rate this item with anything other than 5 stars. The book is for all parents and anyone who works with kids. The principles are practical and wise and I know they work. I plan to buy all the books by these guys!
