Survival Strategies for Parenting Your ADD Child: Dealing with Obsessions, Compulsions, Depression, Explosive Behavior, and Rage

By George T. Lynn

Children with ADD can have severe and very challenging behavioral problems. Research has shown that some children are “born” difficult to parent. These kids may be unmanageable, have no friends, be full of rage, or take dangerous or destructive risks. They may carry any number of psychiatric labels: “ADD, ” “ADHD, ” “Tourette Syndrome, ” “Obsessive Compulsive, ” or “Depressed” and their extremely stressful behavior can destroy family unity.
In our society these children are frequently medicated or placed in mental hospitals. But this doesn’t have to happen. Author and therapist George Lynn works with “difficult” kids in his practice and he has addressed these problems on National Public Radio. Writing from his experience as both a parent and a counselor, he provides parents with methods which can heal the fractures and pain that occur in families with these problems. He believes these “troubled” children are invariably gifted in unusual ways.

George Lynn describes six essential strategies parents can use to deal with their own distress and rage as a result of a child’s provocation. He also addresses the problems confronting single parents with ADD children.    buy-now2

Genius!: Nurturing the Spirit of the Wild, Odd, And Oppositional Child

By George T. Lynn with Joanne Barrie Lynn

Genius! is an inspiring guide to nurturing the remarkable abilities of “attention different” (AD) children diagnosed with conditions such as autism, Asperger Syndrome, AD/HD, bipolar disorder, or Tourette Syndrome (TS). Drawing on their experiences with their own son, who has TS, George T. Lynn and Joanne Barrie Lynn offer a positive parenting philosophy and successful strategies for creating an affirmative social and emotional environment that unlocks the potential genius in ‘neurologically eccentric’ children. The authors emphasize the importance of identifying the signs of giftedness, providing the necessary care and mentoring, and using medication with due consideration of its benefits and limitations. They also acknowledge the need to confront the ‘dark side’ of atypical neurology – obsessiveness, self-centeredness and hyperactivity – and offer helpful advice on ensuring parents’ and carers’ own emotional, spiritual, and physical well-being. This book will be an essential tool for parents and carers to help bring out the best in their AD child and help him explore his full potential in life. This revised edition also includes additional material on working with older age groups.buy-now2
