I purchased this book for my 6 yr old son as a way for him to relate to his ADHD as I did with his asthma book. My son is hyperactive & impulsive. This book might be right for some children, but I don't believe it's right for ours. My review is for the book but I also want to offer ideas from our successes that may help a struggling parent.. It's a long review but maybe it will help someone out there in some way.What I liked about this book:*The first half explained what many ADHD kids experience. Our son related to it.*Addressed how organization can be helpful.*Addresses how many children live with ADHD so that the child doesn't feel different.*Makes mention about support groups for parents of children with ADHD thru CHADD.*Addressing that it is helpful to find an activity/sport the child enjoys/is good at. In the book he discovers bowling. (Some kids enjoy faster paced activities/sports like soccer, football, hockey, tae kwon do/karate, etc. Slower paced sports like baseball & bowling sometimes lose hyperactive kid's attention fast.)*Introduces an initial positive reinforcement plan that offers a sticker reward system. ...I didn't care as much for the books suggested format, as it takes the child 6 weeks to earn reward.
