Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Brain chemistry, not bad parenting, is responsible for the 12 percent of children younger than 18 who have diagnosable brain disorders, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), separation anxiety disorder (SAD), or enuresis (bed-wetting). Through case studies, scientific data, and information about children's development and brain chemistry, Koplewicz helps parents understand the obstacles their brain-disordered children face. A practicing psychiatrist, he also suggests means, including therapy and medication, by which families may lessen the difficulties posed by those disorders. He devotes the final section of the book to considerations of the nature and treatment of probems including, besides those noted above, depression, conduct disorder, bipolar disorder, and autism. Presented with compassion but in no-nonsense style, his effort offers a wealth of scientific information in a format easily accessible to parents, extended families, and friends of "difficult" children. Kathryn Carpenter

From the Publisher

"Dr. Kopelwicz has sent out a much-needed message: Parents need to be informed about the biology of childhood disorders, not blamed for bad parenting! It's Nobody's Fault will be welcome for these families and to the field."
--Judith Rappaport, M.D., bestselling author of The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Watching

"Parents, take note! Dr. Kopelwicz, in It's Nobody's Fault, has extended a trained and experienced hand to guide you gently yet authoritatively through one of life's more stressful domains: understanding a child's mental difficulties. This warm and direct book deserves to be read by every parent or caretaker. It not only explains and illustrates what is important to understand about difficult children, but challenges and clarifies the most common misconceptions."
--Lawrence A. Stone, M.D., president of The American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry

"With warmth, insight, and impeccable information, Dr. Kopelwicz eases parental concerns and keeps the reader turning the pages. The book is an enlightening, pleasurable read by a highly credentialed psychiatrist."
--Diana Huss Green, editor-in-chief and founder of Parents' Choice, Parents' Choice Foundation
