Books on Attention Deficit Disorders

Transforming The Difficult Child by Howard Glasser. ISBN: 0967050707.
This is are new best parenting book for ADHD and other difficult children. The Nurtured Heart Approach is a very positive method of parenting. It is a little easier to do than the book that follows. The nurtured heart approach may be a little awkward at first, but with practice you will do fine. It takes about a week before your child starts responding. It takes four weeks of consistent use of the three principals to actually transform even the most difficult child. In marital therapy, I recommend spouses use this approach with each other. I wish all teachers would use this approach with their students. Whether your child's teacher does or does not use this approach, your child will benefit from your use of the approach.
