This is a practical, easy-to-use resource for parents who want to help their children improve attention, focus, self-discipline, and patience. Written by the world’s leading authority on complementary medicine for children, it provides a solid scientific basis for using natural therapies to help your child succeed. The charts and worksheets offer you tools to realize your child’s strengths, turning stumbling blocks into stepping stones to success. The first chapters introduce basic concepts about ADHD and ADD, identifying common family goals for improving their child’s attention and self-discipline. It frames these goals as skills to be mastered, building on the child’s existing strengths. The next chapters focus on the five fundamental strategies to achieve success (healthy habits in a healthy habitat). These strategies include exercise, sleep, nutrition, managing behavior, emotions, and stress, positive communication, and optimal environment. The next chapters provide practical tools for translating these fundamentals into habits and tracking success. Later chapters cover additional strategies such as pills (medications, vitamins, and herbs), working with schools, counseling, biofeedback, massage, and acupuncture. The last chapter is a handy summary. The book includes links to helpful resources and provides over 200 references to recent scientific studies to support its recommendations.
