APA LifeTools announces the publication of "Parenting Children with ADHD: 10 Lessons That Medicine Cannot Teach" by Dr. Vincent Monastra. Drawing from his experiences in evaluating and treating thousands of children and teens with ADHD, Dr. Monastra presents 10 lessons that are essential for promoting the success of children with this disorder. Each lesson includes a straightforward overview of conflicting viewpoints, real life illustrations, and a wealth of parenting tips. Most of the lessons incorporate charts, worksheets, and checklists to give parents tools to implement Dr. Monastra's research-based parenting program.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD is one of the most common disorders of childhood and adolescence. In fact, current estimates of the prevalence of ADHD indicate that there is least one child with ADHD in nearly every classroom in America. However, teachers and parents of these children often feel overwhelmed by the complexity of this disorder and the challenges that they face as they attempt to understand and help these children. Further condounding this situation is the amount of "non-science" that is proliferated via various media outlets about the causes of ADHD and effective treatments.

In his book, "Parenting Children with ADHD: 10 Lessons That Medicine Cannot Teach", Dr. Monastra translates current research about the causes and treatments for ADHD into an informative and highly readable guidebook that can be used by parents, teachers, and counselors working with patients that have ADHD. Drawing from over two decades of clinical research and practice, involving over 10,000 patients, Dr. Monastra explains the causes of ADHD and provides step-by-step guidance to parents seeking to help their children succeed at school, and improve their organization, emotional control, and social skills at home.

Early reviews of this book by other recognized experts in the field (e.g. Dr. Daniel Amen; Dr. Russell Barkley) describe Dr. Monastra's new book as "easy to read" with "many helpful tips for families dealing with this difficult disorder".

This "Must Read" book is available online at and at most major retail bookstores.
