Item Description...

Parenting teenagers is never easy-especially if your teen suffers from Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). ADD adds complications and challenges to adolescence that parents must understand in order to help their teens succeed in high school and into adulthood.

Give Your ADD Teen a Chance provides parents with expert help by showing them how to determine which issues are caused by "normal" teenage development, and which are caused by ADD. It also looks specifically at the academic challenges ADD teens face, offering tips for academic success. Finally, the book enables parents to look objectively at their ADD teen, giving guidelines for discipline, guidance, and responsibility.

"This book is especially valuable because very little help has been available for parents of teens with ADD. Dr. Weiss' information and presentations are practical and easy to read. Frustrated parents and their equally frustrated ADD teens have been waiting for this book!"-Angie Rose, Ph.D.

"Dr. Lynn Weiss empowers us to listen to the cries of fear, frustration, and failure that today's teens and parents experience in their trek to understand and work through ADD. Lynn's ability to share her own experiences with ADD invites her readers to believe and trust their observations and intuition while honoring the needs of the growing adolescent with ADD. Because of one woman's courage to speak, parents and teachers will gain understanding and acceptance of a 'problem' society has hidden."-Margaret Arnett, M.Ed., program coordinator for the Colorado Corrections Alternative Program, Colorado Department of Corrections

"This excellent book, written for parents with ADD adolescents, offers warmth, insight, information, and strategies on how to understand, approach, and support their children. Dr. Weiss examines the variables that intensify the complexity of development for these teens transitioning into adulthood. Most important, she offers hope and guidance to parents who are faced with the task of raising an ADD teen in an ever-changing society."-Charles J. Karulak, Ed.D., headmaster, The Winston School, San Antonio

An Informative and Practical Book for Parents of ADD Teens  Jan 10, 2007
Finally, a book that really explains ADD in teenagers and how it affects their abilites and lives.... As a mother of a 13 year old boy with ADHD, I was lost. We were able to help him manage his ADHD until puberty hit. Suddenly, it was a whole new ballgame. None of our discipline techniques worked anymore. After reading this book, I have a much better understanding of the disease and how it really impairs people in certain aspects of daily functioning. Some of the behviors I thought were defiant, I now realize are part of the ADHD make up. This book provides explainations of how ADD affects teens depending on their personality type and which behaviors are normal teen behaviors and which are related to the ADD. It gives practical advice on how to handle discipline issues, how to deal with schools to help them better educate your teen and how to help your teen learn to function within the limits of his/her ADD. I am so glad I found this book!
An excellent guide to parenting an ADD teen.  Apr 9, 1997
Recently two of my four children were diagnosed with ADD. I began reading everything I could on the subject. Often the information was confusing, or presented in such a technical way as to be of little help. Giving Your ADD Teen a Chance is presented clearly and with great warmth. I felt good about my children's life. Ms. Weiss gives helpful, relevant advice, loaded with common sense. I have recommended this book to anyone I can find, including several mental health professionals. If your child is diagnosed with ADD, whether or not they have reached their teenage years, this is a MUST read.
