A practical, invaluable guide that gives frustrated parents a long-awaited natural alternative.

Attention Deficit Disorder and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADD/ADHD) are among the most misunderstood problems facing young children today. Drugs like Ritalin and Cylert are traditionally prescribed to treat these disorders, but their use is controversial.

While many children have been helped by these medications, at best, pills only temporarily improve symptoms. Sometimes they don't work at all, and they can come with disturbing side effects such as weight loss, insomnia, and may even slow growth in younger children.

ADD/ADHD Drug Free is the first book to feature enjoyable, practical activities for children that will:

  • help them cope with their disorder by strengthening brain functioning,
  • show parents, teachers, and counselors how they can improve learning and behavior effectively and without medication,
  • and provide healthy, effective, and safe alternatives to using drugs on children.

Timely and thoroughly researched, ADD/ADHD Drug Free will help thousands of children become more focused and more successful in school and in life, without jeopardizing their health.
