Description - Moms with ADD by Christine Adamec

A practical guide for mothers who must deal with attention deficit disorder (ADD) in both themselves and their children. Rather than pathologizing ADD or speculating on causes or medical rationales, the text seeks to help readers recognize ADD traits and optimize their parenting skills. Featuring anecdotes, quotations and examples, it guides mothers through problem-solving, self-tests and questionnaires. Each chapter presents information about every phase of parenting, including: practical coping strategies - the advantages of being an ADD mother and solutions to typical problems both in the home and at work; ADD and the family - how to deal with ADD and non-ADD children and spouses; techniques of self-reflection, organization, handling stress, and dealing with key ADD problems, such as anger, inattentiveness, and time management. Finally, this book deals with aspects of the treatment of ADD, such as what doctors and therapists can and can't do, a brief overview of medications reviewed by a medical doctor, and details about helpful books, national organizations, and support groups for ADD adults and children.
