Excellent reading

Where does Superparenting for ADD rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

On this topic, very close to the top.


Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes.


Any additional comments?

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.

Some new information but not as comprehensive as expected

The beginning of the book was amazing with a lot of scientific background and explanations, history and background of the diagnosis of the disease where amazing too, but once it got to the treatment options basically it was two paragraphs with list of things that can be done for ADD with no theft of discussion or scientific background which is unusual for someone who has 50 years of experience. The last recommendations are in every other book or brochures, Believe me I have read more than six or seven of them so far and participate in the webinars and all the new findings that come off the press . I Expected more of a coaching option for approaching the kids in different situations but unfortunately this just listed things that can be done. In a very broad spectrum . What I learned the most about was how to approach the diagnosis with the child and give them the self-confidence that they lack in order to encourage them to be better individuals and not to be discouraged. I also had myself and my child take the Kolbe index that was recommended in the book but the parents guide in the youth test was not helpful at all so I'm not sure the $45 that I spent for myself and $45 that I spent for my child were worth it either. They didn't give me any information about myself or my son that we did not know about.
