I have other books on bipolar disorder & I use them like textbooks..they sit on the shelf till I want to look something up. This is the first book that I carry around to read & then actually try to apply what I've read.
This is a great first book if you are just starting to inform yourself about the bipolar disorder, or like me want to better understand the behavior of bipolar kids.
His psychiatrist has been trying many of the medications discussed in Dr. Greenberg's book, which now will become a great a reference tool for whenever changes have to be made. The book also includes many forms of therapy inwhich our son has been involved over the years. Now I have a better appreciation of why different therapies worked at different ages and what might be available for him in the future.
Although she is a psychiatrist, Dr. Greenberg does offer some advice on how to make sure that your child is getting all that he or she is entitled to in school. She offers advice for teachers, school counselors, nurses, or anyone else who comes in contact with kids like our's throughout the day.
It is also comforting to know that we are not alone as parents. Reading BIPOLAR KIDS showed me that other parents have encountered many of the same problems and triumphs we have. My husband and I are extremely proud of our son's artistic ability. He studied many forms of dance for eight years before he "retired," but has been seriously and successfully studying water colors for the last two years. We had to wonder where this talent came from because neither of us can paint.
We were amazed and amused when we learned in BIPOLAR KIDS that our son was not alone. There are stories of many famous people throughout history who were either bipolar or who later were thought to have been bipolar.Read more ›

The book provides important information but does so in a readable and usable form. It provides very practical suggestions. What this book does, that no other book has done is to provide us with hope that our child can succeed in life. She talks about children with real life examples-I can see my son and our family in some of the vignettes.
I am going to give copies of the book to my child's teacher and to his grandparents.
What a wonderful book!! Thank you so much!
