Description


With decades of experience working with ADD children, Dr. Edward Hallowell has long argued that ADD is too often misunderstood, mistreated, and mislabeled as a disability. Now he teams up with top academic ADD researcher Peter S. Jensen, MD, to bring you an invaluable new approach to helping your ADD child. Superparenting for ADD offers a specific game plan including

-Unconditional love - Tune out the diagnosticians and simply nourish the spirit of your child for who he is.

-Viewing the mirror traits - Recognize the positive sides of the negative symptoms associated with ADD: stubbornness = persistence; impulsiveness = creativity; intrusiveness = eagerness.

-The cycle of excellence - Nurture an environment in which a child can safely take risks, reserve time to let a child dabble as a way to learn, encourage playful practice, support mastery of a skill, and then recognize a child's accomplishments.

Dr. Edward Hallowell is a bestselling author and himself a man with attention deficit disorder. Peter S. Jenson, MD, is one of the country's foremost academics on ADD and the father of an ADD child. Their combined expertise has created a book that is sure to become an invaluable parenting resource and a classic in ADD literature. It will help parents unlock the gifts of ADD.
