    Why Can't My Child Behave?
      Good parents can have difficult children.
    Sometimes good parents have difficult children, very difficult children! If you find yourself dealing with a little one whose behaviour simply doesn't make sense...and the parenting techniques you have tried aren't working...and the terrible two's are beginning to look like a permanent condition...take heart, you have a lot of company! If children seem to be getting more difficult than ever, there may be a good explanation, and it could be located right under your child's nose. Consider that marshmallow breakfast cereal she consumed, or the fluorescent vitamins he enjoys or the bubble gum flavoured medicine. Do you know what gives these things their pretty colors? How about the fruity flavourings...which have never set foot outside a chemistry lab?
    "Not my child" you say? "I feed him wholesome things like apple juice, oranges, and cucumbers. In our home 'candy' means raisins, and we grow our own tomatoes." Yes, these are wonderful foods, but if your child is sensitive to salicylates, they can trigger world- class tantrums too. This book is about parents who have faced the issues you are dealing with (or worse!) and have found solutions. An eminent physician discovered many of the puzzle pieces, and others have followed, so there now is documentation in the scientific literature. It shows that some foods and some chemicals added to foods can affect how a person behaves, their ability to pay attention and to learn.

    When young people learn they have attention deficit disorder, with or without hyperactivity, they often have many questions, doubts, and fears. Written from both a paediatric and an educational perspective, this highly successful book - now available in a new edition - attempts to address their questions and needs. ADD and ADHD specialist Patricia O. Quinn, inducted into the CHADD Hall of Fame in 2000, and her co-author, Judith M.

      ADHD and Teens
      A Parent's Guide to Making it Through the Tough Years. Ms. Alexander-Roberts' second book on the topic carries on where her first book, "The ADHD Parenting Handbook", leaves off. She has written an excellent, well-researched book that provides in-depth information on living with the teenager with ADHD. She covers the most important concerns well. These include: parenting strategies that work; the use of medication; and the positive aspects of having ADHD. She also discusses helping your teen say "no" to drugs; other co-existing disorders that may be present, but often go undiagnosed and untreated; and many other topics important to parents of ADHD teens. Highly recommended.
     
      You Mean I'm Not Lazy, Stupid, or Crazy?
      A Self-help Book for Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder.
    "
    This book was a God-send to me. I came across it accidentally at a large book sale. Out of tens of thousands of books, this one jumped out at me and said, "Buy me!". The real miracle is that then I actually read it, took it's advice, sought professional diagnosis, began medication, and changed my life. It's not a technical book, it's easy to read. I laughed, I cried, I felt for the first time in my life that someone not only understood me, but was, indeed, LIKE me! After 43 years of thinking that I was lazy, crazy, and sometimes stupid, sometimes a genius, I realized no, but I do have ADD, and that makes me special in my own way."

      You, Your Relationship and Your ADD
      An engaging workbook from a therapist who suffers from adult ADD. He helps readers change impulsive and frustrating behaviours and learn new skills to help them build lasting and satisfying intimate relationships. Millions of adult meet the diagnostic criteria for Attention Deficit Disorder. When they get involved in committed relationships, the kind of spontaneity that originally made them attractive to their partners often starts to feel frustrating and undependable as relationships progress and the ADD adult's irritability and poor communication skills start to put a strain on their partner's patience. ADD adults are often bewildered by their inability to manage their romantic relationships and devastated by a long history of failed attempts. Psychotherapist Michael Bell understands how they feel, both from his professional background treating clients with adult ADD and from his own life experience of learning how to cope with the disorder. In You, Your Relationship, and Your ADD, Bell brings together an array of cognitive-behavioural and solution-focused techniques to teach readers how to stop avoiding the problems that sabotage their relationships, face the intimacy issues that frustrate their partners, and begin to do the work they need to do to build a lasting relationship. His clear and concise workbook offers exercises that keep readers involved and give them a chance to learn the skills they need to learn in order to control frustrations, and really begin to listen to their partner.
