"This very clear and well-written guide is filled with useful strategies and all the reinforcement that ADHD parents need."--Jane Marks, author of The Hidden Children
"Russell Barkley's extensive experience as clinician, researcher, and teacher really shows. This is the most up-to-date story on our understanding of ADHD and its practical management. The readable reviews would inform most therapists. Dr. Barkley shows parents the way toward a positive approach to ADHD, from which the whole family will benefit."--Judith L. Rapoport, MD, Chief, Child Psychiatry Branch, NIMH, Bethesda, Maryland, author of The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing
From the Back Cover
"Russell Barkley might well be known as the patron saint of ADHD for all that he has done to advance our understanding of this fascinating condition. Dr. Barkley's name is synonymous with quality, integrity, and reliability. He is meticulous in his research and unfailing in his willingness to offer his time as well as his knowledge to all who ask for help. Anyone who writes about, researches, or lives with ADHD owes a deep debt to Dr. Barkley." Edward M. Hallowell, MD, coauthor of Driven to Distraction

If you have a child with ADHD, this book has the most helpful and up to date information on everything from causes, misconceptions, and statistics to reasons children may struggle with school or with socialization skills. I mean Dr. Barkley gives many examples from families he has worked with from the viewpoint of the parents as well as a heart-wrenching letter written by a student about how he was treated in school by teachers. It even includes a behavioral modification plan to try at home or in school.
Whether you have thought about trying medication or not, there is an entire chapter with facts about the different medications and how they work,etc. He just gives out the facts and doesn't push towards medication but wants to be informative so you become what he calls the "executive" parent since you are the best advocate for your child.
Wonderful book!!! I am reading it for the second time just in the last month. Very easy to read! I can't say enough about this book! Thank you for the help Dr. Russell Barkley!
A coworker has been using this book for years. She bought a copy for ex-husband. They have done an amazing job with their son.
Nothing is going to take away the challenges of parenting a child with ADHD. But this book distills the very best techniques and presents them in an easy to follow manner. I have recommended it to friends and family who all agreed it was the best source they have found for dealing with an ADHD child.
