Living with the Active Alert Child: Groundbreaking Strategies for Parents. Third Edition.
Budd, Linda S.
Bright, controlling, fearful, and highly energetic, active alert children are frequently misdiagnosed as hyperactive or learning disabled. This book offers guidance for the special challenge of parenting the active alert infant, child, and adolescent. Part 1 of the book profiles the active alert child and examines 11 traits that characterize active alert children. Part 2 discusses parenting the active alert child and offers advice on understanding the child, using parenting strategies that fit both the child's and parents' needs, and adapting different family systems to the active alert child. Part 3 highlights special events and daily activities that are potentially troublesome to the active alert child and discusses learning styles as they relate to active alert children. Part 4 examines active alert individuals as adolescents, as adults, and as parents. This part also answers frequently asked questions about active alert children, and offers some new insights on active alert individuals. The book's appendix presents a list of resources and suggested readings that contains 58 titles for adults and 17 titles for children. (KB)
