Publisher's Summary

Still struggling to help your ADHD child?

Do you see any or many of these signs and symptoms of ADHD in your child?

  • Loses important things
  • Disorganized
  • Distracted
  • No follow-through
  • Avoids mental effort
  • Doesn't listen
  • Inattentive
  • Careless
  • Spacey
  • Forgetful
  • Poor focus

If you’re seeing more than a handful of these characteristics, you can’t ignore them. These behaviors indicate a child who is not fully present and not able to embrace the joy available in life. With these behaviors, often they find it impossible to interact in a cooperative, productive, and fulfilling way with other people. They don’t do as well in school, and this affects their future career possibilities.

When your child acts up with the symptoms of ADHD, it can put you right on your “last nerve”, and you want a solution. But you’re also recognizing that simply giving your child a pill every day may not be the best or most responsible thing to do.

Sure, you can get specialized testing and simply “get a pill”, or you can be a real parent and learn the true meaning of their behavior, as well as what you can do to help.

There is a solution to help a child with ADHD without medication.

I’m here to tell you that there is a solution for the symptoms you’re seeing in your child. And we’re not talking about controlling or minimizing the symptoms of ADHD. That’s not nearly enough. We’re talking about a real transformation where your child becomes truly happy, fulfilled, responsible, and, well, a human being again - almost always without the use of medications, which have a serious list of possible long-term side effects.

You can do this, so let's get started.

This book was helpful

My 7 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD last year and sometimes I feel a bit lost in handling things. This book was helpful and easy to read. It doesn't say "hey, here's all the answers you need, just follow our formula!" but gives insight into what's going on and helpful ideas to manage behavior and help our son.

It is so informative!

It is so informative! My girls are still young so I'm not sure if they truly have or will continue to have ADHD, but the tips are helpful even so. I am thankful that, should they not outgrow their behaviors, I have this resource.

Great little book.

If you are new to ADHD and have not read too much on the subject, are in the USA, and are looking for a good overview and solid resources, then this is a good place to start. It is not overwhelmingly long, and is structured well.

Enjoyed this book

Enjoyed this book practical approach in supporting kids with attentional challenges. Not as obsessed with justifying the underlying neurological differences.

A great resource.

A great resource. Explanations that help neuro-typical parents understand their ADHD kids. In addition to perspective, the book has a lot of good tools that make communication more effective, even for really little kids (but a majority of what’s discussed will be more useful for school aged kids). One of those books I’m sure I’ll reread many times over the years...

I totally recommend it!

It’s like a tour inside my kids brain! Very interesting and enlightening it helped me deal and understand a LOT about him. Off course there are still chapters that don’t apply to a 5 year old (my son) but it gives us an insight of how it will probably be when he goes to school. I totally recommend it!

Good book

This is a solid book, but if you've already read about peaceful/positive/alternative parenting strategies, you'll already know a lot of what's in this book. The ADHD-specific information was not a huge chunk of the book. If you're struggling with your relationship to your adhd child and haven't read stuff like that, read this. If your relationship and parenting is solid and you're looking for info on ADHD in particular, pick up a different book.

Learned a ton


In my opinion, this book provides a way for families to gain or improve on a healthy environment and social life for their children. All in all, I felt this book is very worthwhile to improve the quality of life for the ADHD child as well as yourself.

Good fun

Although fairly old with regards to ADHD research, still a very handy book to have; explaining ADHD without being an academic handbook.

Loved it but...

My son was diagnosed a number of years ago with ADHD which has never sat well with me as I believe he has other issues. I researched after getting the diagnosis but always felt that ADHD was a copout diagnosis. However, after reading this book I may be starting to believe it is actually a proper condition not a poor parenting copout.
