Greetings from Indiana! I hope this finds you well and enjoying the holidays. Holidays can be a tough time for children with ADHD because of all the excitement and stimulation—and also all the foods and candies that go along with the holiday! If your child’s behavior is worse during the holidays, it may be because he is sensitive to the artificial colors and flavors, all the sugar and high fructose corn syrup, and the chocolate! Many children with ADHD are “turned on” by chocolate!
I haven’t written in the past few months because I’m working on a new book, “Solving the puzzle of Your ADD/ADHD Child!” I hope to have the manuscript complete in six months. It will be published both in print and also as an e-book. I’ll keep you posted on how everything is going.
I’m really excited about this book and have been gathering research for it since my last book was published in 2000. I have lots of new, important information that I think will help many children and families.
I won’t be posting a newsletter every month so I can work full time on the book.
All best wishes,
