Not perfect, but a really good "inside look" at a family struggling to manage behavioral issues with their ADHD child. I wish sometimes that was all that we had going on with Carver. A book like this would be more helpful, but there was good examples and it motivated me to work harder at isolating a behavior at a time to change and to find the right currency for him.

Great book - especially the discussion of behavior modification in challenging children. I think it applies easily to non-challenging children, too. Although, I don't have any ADHD diagnosed kids, we see some of the challenging behaviors sometimes and some of these techniques have already paid dividends.

I was at a really low point, struggling with my ADHD son, and found this at just the right time. So much of it helped me me more than anything. I realized I was not the only one feeling this way and the book gave me hope along with some practical advice I started implementing right away.

After years of reading parenting books geared toward "normal" children, it was refreshing to find this one. I'm excited to try some of the suggestions and methods. Taking it all in one breath can be overwhelming, but a measured approach seems reasonable.

Good book! Explained the meaning of challenging behaviors and how to be effective parenting. Welcome to my blog to find more sources:

Fabulous book for working with ADHD kids. I promptly returned my library copy and bought one for myself ... and I NEVER buy books.

For parents or teachers, some great ideas for continuing to understand and support (with structure!) students with behavior challenges.
