There's nothing more frustrating than watching your bright, talented son or daughter struggle with everyday tasks like finishing homework, putting away toys, or following instructions at school. Your "smart but scattered" 4- to 13-year-old might also have trouble coping with disappointment or managing anger. Drs. Peg Dawson and Richard Guare have great news: there's a lot you can do to help. The latest research in child development shows that many kids who have the brain and heart to succeed lack or lag behind in crucial "executive skills"--the fundamental habits of mind required for getting organized, staying focused, and controlling impulses and emotions. Learn easy-to-follow steps to identify your child's strengths and weaknesses, use activities and techniques proven to boost specific skills, and problem-solve daily routines. Helpful worksheets and forms can be downloaded and printed in a convenient 8 1/2" x 11" size. Small changes can add up to big improvements--this empowering book shows how. See also the authors' Smart but Scattered Teens and their self-help guide for adults. Plus, an academic planner for middle and high school students and related titles for professionals.

For kids with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, things like sitting still, paying attention, or focusing on homework can be huge challenges. Sometimes, people think kids with this disorder are "bad" or lazy and think they should just try harder. But, of course, it isn't that simple. Kids with ADHD aren't bad or lazy, they just have an extra challenge to overcome, and with help, that challenge can be overcome. Having attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder isn't the end of the world, and kids with ADHD can still succeed in their lives, have fun with friends, and enjoy the world around them.

Spitzensportler, Geigenvirtuosen, Elitestudenten, Karrieremenschen – in der Regel sprechen wir Erfolge den Begabungen des Menschen zu. Doch dieser Glaube ist nicht nur falsch, er hindert auch unser persönliches Fortkommen und schränkt unser Potenzial ein. Die Psychologin Carol Dweck beweist: Entscheidend für die Entwicklung eines Menschen ist nicht das Talent, sondern das eigene Selbstbild. Was es damit auf sich hat, wie Ihr eigenes Selbstbild aussieht und wie Sie diese Erkenntnisse für sich persönlich nutzen können, erfahren Sie in diesem Buch.
