5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded my hopes! March 28 2013
By M. Sammarco - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was cautiously optimistic about this book. I excpected my son and I to read this book together while he complained that it bored him to tears. The very first night we read he stopped mid-paragraph to ask questions and discuss what we had read. I was thrilled! He was open and talking - something I don't get very often. I felt like he was beginning to believe that he wasn't the only kid around dealing with this same struggle. This book is a great tool. I believe that it highlights strategies for change. What I find most helpful is that reading the material means that it is coming from another source other than Mom/Dad. This seems to make it easier to accept and discuss. He seems more willing to try things out that have been suggested in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really Explains ADD Sept. 28 2013
By Bama - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have recommended this book to parents many times as a way to help their children understand what ADD is. One of the best points in the book is that a diagnosis of ADD is not an excuse. Once one realizes what ADD is all about, one needs to work on ways to be successful, despite it. Written for kids to understand!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book Feb. 3 2014
By monica leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Recommended by development psychologist, this book really helped my son understand ADHD in a positive but informative way. He identified with the descriptions and found the suggestions helpful. I would recommend this book for any child or parent experiencing ADD/ADHD. It is particularly helpful for reading together as a family.

3.0 out of 5 stars Best for older kids Dec 25 2013
By Carrie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this for my 8-year-old who has been diagnosed with ADHD and I think it was too heavy for him. I think it will be more appropriate when he's older and more mature.
5.0 out of 5 stars excellent jump off point July 19 2014
By Mermaidshopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
this book is great for parents and kids to read together. There is a lot of resistance in the beginning. The sooner people get informed and empowered the better. I give this away.
