As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and the mother of two sons---one of whom struggled with ADHD symptoms---Phillips Brown had to think outside the box to help her child succeed while keeping his body free of psychotropic medications.
In this book, Phillips Brown shares her methods of intervention, used in the home and at school, that improved her son’s ability to focus. She also utilized these same practices on her younger son, who didn't have symptoms of ADHD, and noticed an overall decrease in his crying spells and moodiness.
This step-by-step guide to how she and her husband addressed their children’s lack of focus, extra energy and grumpiness without medication for the past 7 years, highlights their successes as well as their struggles, as they worked to implement a natural approach to provide a more structured, organized lifestyle.
"When creating this lifestyle we understood that this natural approach would have its share of obstacles, and it did. However, the rewards far outweighed those challenges. Our sons excel at public speaking, win awards, are outgoing, and creative. If I had to do it all over again I would do it in a heartbeat. This is our life. This is our journey."
