A fully revised and updated edition of the groundbreaking book on tackling the root causes of children’s attention and behavior problems rather than masking the symptoms with medication. More than twenty years after Dr. Thomas Armstrong's Myth of the A.D.D. Child first published, he presents much needed updates and insights in this substantially revised edition. When The Myth of the A.D.D. Child was first published in 1995, Dr. Thomas Armstrong made the controversial argument that many behaviors labeled as ADD or ADHD are simply a child's active response to complex social, emotional, and educational influences. In this fully revised and updated edition, Dr. Armstrong shows readers how to address the underlying causes of a child's attention and behavior problems in order to help their children implement positive changes in their lives. The rate of ADHD diagnosis has increased sharply, along with the prescription of medications to treat it. Now needed more than ever, this book includes fifty-one new non-drug strategies to help children overcome attention and behavior problems, as well as updates to the original fifty proven strategies.

Unplug your toddlers! Here is screen-free play for ages 1-2 that’s creative, fun, and makes the most of everyday household objects. Here are games to play alone and games to play with siblings and friends and parents. Games to play indoors and games for outside. There are toddler-friendly hand-clapping games, games to play with stuffed animals, and games to let off a little steam, plus lots of ideas for keeping toddlers busy (perfect for when you’re making dinner). These are the kinds of truly fun games and activities deliberately designed to stretch the imagination, spark creativity, build strong bodies, forge friendships, and explore the real world—the opposite of hunkering down in front of an addictive screen. Originally published as a single, parent-friendly encyclopedia of more than 700 screen-free, no-batteries-needed games and activities, Unplugged Play is acclaimed as “A terrific prescription for much of what ails children and parents today” (Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods) and “Just plain fun! . . . Will help parents give their children the kind of childhood that more and more children are missing” (Mary Pipher, PhD, author of Reviving Ophelia). These new editions are brightly designed books targeted to a specific age group. And the need, of course, is even greater than when the book was originally published—screens are far more ubiquitous, causing parents even greater concern about their overuse—and these timeless, imaginative, easy-to-implement games are here to the rescue.
