Unraveling the ADD/ADHD Fiasco: Successful Parenting Without Drugs
by David B Stein

This is another book offer a parenting technique.

However where this differs from a number of other similar books this book tries to disprove the existence of ADD/ADHD.

While I am sure that the technique will be of help to some parent I'm uncomfortable with the fact that the basis of the technique is aimed at parents of children who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD when the author clearly does not believe in the condition.

Therefore I would suggest that the idea of parenting style would be suited to those who want to help the difficult child all those who want were improve their own parenting style rather than be aimed at those with ADD/ADHD.

I do find it difficult to read the increasing number of books and articles written by those who openly express that they do not believe in the condition and try to do everything they can to promote their views which are against medical opinion, on to vulnerable parents.

My main comment to these authors would be "how, if you do not believe that ADD/ADHD exists, do you justify earning a living working with children who are medically diagnosed with something you are so against?" My view would therefore be to consider with an open mind and some caution and I would hope that these people will also set against this condition will start to work to help all those with children who are not medically diagnosed with ADD/ADHD and concentrate their efforts to give help were required in an honest way rather than the unfair criticism they put onto those parents who are already vulnerable.
