Living with ADD/ADHD can be hectic, and parenting a child with this disorder can feel like an uphill struggle when even the simplest of tasks causes havoc. This book, by Cheryl R Carter addresses the issues of organisation and time management in relation to ADD/ADHD, suggesting practical ways of organising your child’s day and turning chaos into calm.
Accommodating short attention spans and short fuses, Cheryl Carter shows how, by using the F.I.R.S.T method (Fun, Individualism, Rules, Simplicity and Time management), even the most hyperactive and easily distracted of children can be taught to make their bed, pack their school bag, and generally get organised! The author recognises that children hate anything that is boring, and finds fun ways around even the most mundane of tasks. Her no-nonsense, step-by-step strategies, in combination with positive affirmations and realistic demands, will get ADD/ADHD children organised, and from A to B without a hitch.
This book is a must-have for any flagging parent struggling to structure their child’s life (and indeed their own!). It will also be of interest to family members, teachers, and anybody close to a child with ADD/ADHD.
