Useful and Practical information

I have found the book to be useful with very practical information and advice that works. All of a sudden we seem to have time to do those extra things there was never time for!

Great Book

This is a great book not only for parents with children diagnosed with ADHD and hyperactivity but for any parent who wants to implement stability and harmony in their child’s routine without having to physically discipline a child. It looks at the world from a child’s perspective and explains to the parent what the child, sees, hears and feels when confronted with day to day life. The book relies on many illustrated pages and examples of charts and rosters for your child. This book was “prescribed” to us by an occupational therapist and I can see why.

Excellent & thought pro@#$ing

This is a brilliant book. It enables you to look at parenting from a totally different perspective and it gives you useful tools to make it easier to be organised.

The manual

I purchased this for a friend, but is definately going to get it for myself. Such a easy read guideline to better parenting. This book was first on a list of recommendations from a occupational therapist.
