Mindful Parenting for ADHD
About the Book
Written by a pediatrician and based in proven-effective mindfulness techniques, this book will help you and your child with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) keep calm, flexible, and in control.
If you are a parent of a child with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), you probably face many unique daily challenges. Kids with ADHD are often inattentive, hyperactive, and impulsive, since ADHD affects all of self-management and self-regulation. As a result, you might become chronically frustrated or stressed out, which makes caring for ADHD that much harder. In this book, a developmental pediatrician presents a proven-effective program for helping both you and your child with ADHD stay cool and collected while remaining flexible, resilient, and mindful.
Bertin addresses the various symptoms of ADHD using non-technical language and a user-friendly format. In addition, he offers guidelines to help you assess your child's strengths and weaknesses, create plans for building skills and managing specific challenges, lower stress levels for both yourself and your child, communicate effectively, and cultivate balance and harmony at home and at school.
If you are a parent, caregiver, or mental health professional, this book provides a valuable guide.

“Parenting is a very challenging role, and even more so when children have a diagnosis of ADHD. Mark Bertin has written a truly remarkable book that offers numerous strategies to help children with ADHD to become more successful and resilient. Very importantly, he addresses a key issue; namely, that unless parents learn to deal realistically with their own expectations, pressure, and stress, they will not be as effective when helping their children with ADHD to meet the many developmental demands they will face. In a very empathic, easy-to-read style, Bertin provides practical techniques rooted in mindfulness theory that parents can apply in their own lives. This book is a wonderful resource for parents (and I might add for professionals as well)—a resource that will be read and reread as parents enrich their own lives and the lives of their children.”
