Superparenting for ADD. An Innovative Approach to Raising Your Distracted Child. By: Edward M. Hallowell . Narrated by: William Hughes. Length: 5 hrs and 7 mins.

With decades of experience working with ADD children, Dr. Edward Hallowell–a pediatric psychiatric clinician, father of two ADD children, and himself an adult with ADD–understands how easily the gifts of this condition are lost on a child amid negative comments from doctors, teachers, and even loving but frustrated parents. Hallowell has long argued that ADD is too often misunderstood, mistreated, and mislabeled as a “disability.” Now he teams up with top academic ADD researcher Peter S. Jensen, M.D., who is himself a father of an ADD child, to bring you an upbeat and encouraging new approach to living with and helping your ADD child. The practical strength-based techniques Drs. Hallowell and Jensen present put the talents, charms, and positive essence of your child ahead of any presumed shortcomings. Clearly outlined and organized, Superparenting for ADD offers a specific game plan that includes• UNCONDITIONAL LOVE Tune out the diagnosticians and labelers and simply notice and nourish the spirit of your child for who he is. Providing this unshakable base of support will set the tone for all interactions to come.• VIEWING THE MIRROR TRAITS There are positive sides of the negative symptoms associated with ADD: stubbornness = persistence; impulsiveness = creativity; intrusiveness = eagerness. By recognizing the mirror traits, you avoid the ravages of shame and fear.• THE CYCLE OF EXCELLENCE Use this critical 5-step process to help a child develop self- and social awareness. Nurture an environment in which a child can safely take risks, reserve time to let a child dabble as a way to learn, encourage playful practice, support mastery of a skill (whatever the skill may be), and then recognize a child’s accomplishments.• IDENTIFYING AND TAPPING THE SOURCE Pinpoint your child’s inner, conative strengths, which drive what he naturally and spontaneously does, as opposed to what he is told to do or feels he must do. Your child will do his best when allowed to use these conative strengths.Drs. Hallowell and Jensen fully understand the real and everyday challenges–both at home and at school–facing parents of an ADD child. Now this important book shows you how to unwrap the wonderful, surprising gifts of ADD and turn what is too often labeled a lifelong disability into a lifelong blessing.
Comments to eBook Superparenting for ADD: An Innovative Approach to Raising Your Distracted Child
melody of you
I must admit that I have not finished reading the book, yet. I have been reading, very slowly, actually. I got it with the hope that it would tell me what to "do" about my son. And, while it is giving me some "to dos", it is much more than that. So, I am savoring it. This book, for me, is not just a "how to". It is a call to parent with more consciousness, heart, and connection. Something that would be good for all parents of all kinds of children. It is challenging me to stop trying to "manage" my son, so he fits better into my fast-moving flow of life. It is challenging me to slow down and really see him, listen to him, learn what gifts he brings to the table, and what can I learn from him and this parenting journey. None of that is to say that it denies the frustrating, frightening, and sad parts of parenting a child with ADD. This is fully acknowledged in the book. I often feel like the writers have been looking into my window! I feel empathized with and appreciated and encouraged when I read the book. Shifting from seeing this diagnosis as only something to "get over" or "push through", to something that we will both be living with and learning to incorporate into how we live our lives together, is a major shift for me. I am more hopeful, even in the midst of the maddening aspects of parenting. I am learning to be a much better advocate for my son with others. I have more respect for him, and that allows me to parent him from a much more loving place than a judgmental place. Get this book, it is a breath of fresh air!

Hallowell provides hope and inspiration for parents struggling to better understand their special needs child and meet their needs. He has a balanced perspective and reminds us of the importance of acknowledging our children's strengths and fostering self-esteem. Some of the information I had already encountered from therapists and other text, however there are always interesting tid bits and "ah-ha" moments when you read Hallowell's books.

After a decade of experience as the parent of an ADHD child, I feel that Superparenting for ADD is the first book that parents new to ADHD should read. It offers valuable strategies to help your child reach his/her full potential. I wish it had been available when I was first learning about ADHD.

As a professional educator, I think this book should be at the top of the reading list for both parents and teachers that have and know children with ADHD. It offers valuable strategies to help in the day-to-day challenges of raising and teaching the ADHD child.

In addition to the message of Unconditional Love and other important themes in this book for raising a distracted child, Superparenting offers in Chapter 9, concise and valuable information about treating ADD: Changes in Lifestyle (Sleep, Diet, Exercise and Positive Human Contact), providing Structure, Counseling, and Medication. Appendix A offers equally valuable information on using Behavioral Strategies to help your child improve his or her behavior. These two sections alone justify the purchase of this book.

In addition to this and Dr. Hallowell's other fine books, you should consider looking at books written by Thomas E. Brown and Russell A. Barkley. Hallowell, Brown and Barkley each have websites with informative articles for parents, teachers and others.

Please note that while Hallowell prefers the term ADD over ADHD, but this book is really Superparenting for ADHD.

This book was fantastic exactly what I needed. It has given me a new perspective on my son that we need to look at his learning disabilities as gifts not as deficiencies.

Best book on parenting a kiddo with ADD we have found. Reshaped our thinking of how to raise our oldest. He's 8 now and this book has been a God send. Highly recommended!

I was so excited to read this book when I heard about it and starts reading as soon as it arrived. I appreciate th idea of the mirror traits and recognizing the positive sides of ADHD, but the author seems to gloss over many important ideas. First, this story about th family sitting around eating brunch and laughing because the child forgot to take his medicine so he was eating more is just ridiculous. I'm not sure of any parent or family would laugh and joke about forgetting to take medicine. His example seemed the make light of the importance of medication. Next, I thought it was also ridiculous that this same child became the poster child for ADHD. Again, he seems to gloss over the struggles most families face parenting a child with ADHD. Most importantly, on page 131, the authors actually suggest not having a formal iep, but rather making an informal IEP with the teacher. That's an irresponsible recommendation for many, many reasons. Finally, a good chunk of the book talks about the Kolbe Model and that we should go online (and pay) to take the assessment. That made me feel like I wasted my money buying this book. Again, the idea that children who have ADHD do have many special qualities is important to recognize, but the author makes light of too many important aspects of ADHD and does not provide many useful tips for actual "super-parenting."

I admit I am still reading this, but I love the style and approach of this book. Its encouraging and makes you look at ADD from a different perspective. I desperately needed this type of encouragement and plan to utilize the tools and ideas found within the pages.
