Great advice for parents with smart kids who can't focus. The book arrived in a reasonable amount of time for a fair price.

I own and have used Smart But Scattered, the original book for younger kids, but I'm not sure that I don't find this book even more useful. While the first book is filled with a great deal of wisdom, I found some of the elaborate incentive systems very difficult to implement and stick with. What I like about this one is all the wonderful general advice (very congruent with Michael Bradley's approach to teens, which is a personal favourite) and the specific systems for the different executive skills are presented with overarching guidelines that don't get too bogged down in detail. The addition of short case study examples is extremely helpful. I wish ultimately that the authors lived in my home town so that I could receive some support for implementing their approach to teaching these crucially important life skills, but I think this will help a great deal. I would give this book five stars based on my first reading, but would like to see how I do putting all this advice into practice first, as I think the true measure of a self-help book is whether it significantly helps in real life.

Great Book! Excellent insight into the struggles your teen may be facing. Jan. 3 2013
By Ryan Armand - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Smart but Scattered Teens is a must for any proud parent of a teen coping with a learning disability. Unlike many similar books, it presents information and suggestions in a real-life, applicable manner. The authors present the material in an organized, readable, fashion, where a parent (or even a teen, for that matter) could read the book from cover to cover, or select individual sections most applicable to their situation.

The book also contains several hypothetical situations that many teens may find themselves in (think of speeding in a car). It then contains some interesting reactions, both from professionals and from real life teens, on how to respond, learn, and grow based on from such experiences.

Ultimately, if your teen could use a little, or a lot, of help developing the executive skills necessary to succeed in life, this book is for you.

A+

Excellent resource for parents of teens with ADHD or ADD Feb. 11 2013
By Laurence Coff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a clinical psychologist I regard this as one of the best resources for parents of teens. This helps parents to look at the teen with ADHD as having some executive skills impairments that need remediation and understanding. Parents also rate their own executive skills and can try to be a better fit in parenting these adolescents. There are many constructive suggestions in this book and I highly recommend it.

Excellent insight March 30 2013
By Claudia D.Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The best part was when the author brought up the point that we may see thier deficits and want to help our teens improve, but if they don't see it as a problem, or necessarily even want our help, it's never going to work. Excellent advice to keep in mind as we work WITH teens, not against.

This book is so helpful if you have a teen with ADD Feb. 25 2013
By starbrite70 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Simply put, this book breaks down the specific executive functions that teens with ADD struggle with. Then it gives you tools to help your child strengthen these executive function weaknesses. I'm not articulate enough to go into great detail but I have found this book to be THE most helpful book on ADD that I have read. I just wish I'd found the Smart but Scattered books earlier.

Really inciteful. April 11 2013
By Christine Heppenstall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is fantastic. It really helped me see my teenager in a different light and to understand objectively what he is thinking and what his motives are. Once you are able to see the situation from the councilor's point of view you can then change how you react and handle situations with your teen. It also helped me to see myself from that perspective and take steps to work on my hang-ups.
