Putting on the Brakes book. I really enjoyed reading this book to not only get an understanding through my son's eyes, but also some great tips and tools to help him to succeed.

One of the most difficult things about parenting an ADHD child is explaining attention deficit disorder to that child. Patricia Quinn and associates have given a powerful resource to these parents - a true gift to empower them. In simple language, illustrated with eye-catching graphics, PUTTING ON THE BRAKES explains not only the nature of this disorder, but also how children and their families can learn to manage it. As an ADD Coach, I find this to be the most important resource that I can put into the hands of parents.

I am a social worker currently working with a population of children who struggle biologically, emotionally, and behaviorally. It is hard to find good child friendly literature that deal with ADHD. I'm glad I found Putting on the Brakes. It covers many things my kids wonder about and then some. Putting on the Brakes includes chapters defining the diagnosis, discussing the science behind it, the common feelings one my have, and problem solving. My clients enjoyed the book and especially loved the analogy of ADHD to a car without brakes. (One of my clients is obsessed with cars). However, it delves too much into the science and lacks the active problem solving and skill building that the corresponding work book has. Over all, Putting on the Brakes answers questions and opens the door for great communication between you and your kids, who may struggle with their diagnosis.

this book is really good. It really helps my son who has ADHD, understand what it is, and his responsibility with it. We have enjoyed teaching him about it, recognizing that it's just who he is, but that he can learn skills to manage it. A very positive book.

Bought this for a friend. It's a great read if you are struggling with a strong willed child and you suspect more is going on in there.

I bought this book for my 9 year old with ADHD with the hopes that it might give him some insight to what the disorder is. This book is more for a 5-6 year old, maybe even younger. The ideas it gives to kids to help with their struggle are extremely basic common sense and not at all creative or very helpful at all. In the "gaining control" part that's supposed to give ideas on what can help the kids it says they need to make friends, take their meds and become more organized - with some really basic ideas on how to do those things (ex. to pay better attention at school take notes. YEAH RIGHT, I'm sure he's going to take notes when nobody else in the class is doing so!)...anyway, it says this book is for ages 8-13 but it is DEFINITELY not. I really don't find any part of this helpful.

Wat!? Wat!?
Wonderful book. Very easy to read and understand. Excellent choice! Our son found great peace of mind reading this book. It has helped him to understand he has to make better choices to receive better results .
Written very well for both young people and adults. Offers realistic solutions for everyday problems that those with ADHD face.
