Reviews - What do our customers think?
Nothing new here  Nov 30, 2008
Book isn't worth the money, go the library and borrow a copy if you want to read it.
Excellent book and super fast shipping.  Sep 23, 2008
This book is agreat help to our home. We are dealing with a child that has ADHD, ODD and a Mood Disorder.
A well balanced approach  Jul 27, 2008
Russ Barkley has a good sense of how children behave and why, which allows him to develop good strategies for helping children learn how to be compliant. I really appreciate that he first teaches the parents/care providers, to catch the child being good and working on increasing the frequency of those observations. He then has one focus on how to target behaviors that need modification and goes through how to set up a clear system of expectations and consequences. The use of a token system allows a visual for the child to monitor his/her progress. All of us do better if we have something to work for, even a paycheck, so providing a list of incentives/rewards for children struggling to behave is no different.

Parents, teachers, and othe childccare providers will all benefit from learning these techniques in the order that he has presented them.
I recommend this book all the time.   Jun 19, 2008
I have recommended this book umpteen times. (Don't ask me how many "umpteen" is, but it's a lot!) Realistic, understandable, and well explained. The behavior program is based on positive reinforcement, and from the feedback of my clients, it works! One of my favorite prinicples discussed in the book is "catch your child being good". Barkley is one of the giants in our field, and whatever he writes is golden.

Excellent resource for parents  Oct 5, 2007
My pediatrician recommended this book when I expressed concerns over power struggles I was having with my daughter. Initially I took the book out of the library - then had to buy it because frankly - I can't do without it now.
