I am reading this book, which comes recommended by a few like-minded friends of mine. It is co-written by a renowned Waldorf teacher and school consultant/psychologist who has come to specialize in treating ADD/ADHD and other often over/mis-diagnosed conditions that he shows to be mostly a result of an ever present outbreak of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in it's truest form, but in the children across the US. He has years of experience and first hand proof that this is a very real and dominant problem in our culture, because we have over run our children with stimuli and media to the point of traumatizing them into bad behavior and levels of stress that stear their chemistry into disorder on diagnostic levels.
He has become known in his practice as "Dr. Trashbag" because he has been (successfully) treating ADD/ADHD and just plain families who want to be happier by clearing out thier home of half the "junk", stuff, toys, etc...that clutter up their lives and leaving their children in imbalance.
I am REALLY loving this book! He says (and has studies to back up) the same things I have been saying for YEARS just based on my experience and my feelings about ADD specifically. It's not ABOUT ADD as a book...but he certainly has a HUGE place in that research and treatment IMO...and can not be ignored. I am really taking to heart his suggestions and "plan" and have been using his guidelines to simplify our lives, little by little...and you don't have to be a "Waldorf family" to benefit or see the Truth in his ideas.
TOTALLY worth the read and it can ONLY HELP a family who is finding imbalence in their child in any way.
