Only those parents with kids in the US school system.....
Whilst I fully agree with the concept that gifts are more important that disabilities, this book is filled with jargon ONLY applicable to the American school system. What is of value to the rest of the parents who live all over the world, is actually very little. There should be a note on the book that we should not waste money on this one!
On this topic, very close to the top.
Finally found somebody to verbalise my feelings.... As a (non-ADD) parent of two ADHD kids (22 years apart), this book has given me an understanding into how the ADD brain functions and why I think my children are brilliant while the teachers struggle to get anything out of them. A very rare and balanced approach to medication vs other treatments.
Definitely. After realising where the "strange" voice came from (sorry Sean) it was absolutely delightful to read this positive take on a barrel full of lemons which turned out to be a very enjoyable, if somewhat tangy, lemonade. The complete absence of self-pity and "preaching holier than thou" in this book was refreshing and inspiring. Many of us believe we have problems but reading this makes you realise you have excuses.
Without a doubt the little schoolboy Sean. Refusing to accept that being different makes him special.
No, I have not but will soon again.
Life is full of lovely sweet berries, use it or lose it! Don't wait for tomorrow, others or a higher power to take charge of your life.
