This book provides useful information to parents and practitioners who are trying to keep up with children who are living without brakes. The author describes the spectrum of AD/HD, the co-occurring symptoms, and common difficulties that parents face. The rest of the book focuses on solutions based around four rules:
+ Punishments can change behaviour but only positive approaches can improve attitude
+ Keep it calm: it is difficult to think clearly when you are feeling overwhelmed
+ Keep it organized, particularly in relation to the child's school life
+ Keep doing Rules 1-3
Martin Kutscher discusses the role of medication in treating AD/HD and the concluding chapter summarizes the information covered. The author is a paediatric neurologist in the USA and understands the nature of AD/HD as well as the perspectives and experiences of parents.
Martin Kutscher is a Professor in the Departments of Paediatrics and Neurology at New York Medical College in New York, USA.
