Episode 110 – Dr. Craig Wiener – ADHD / audio

ADHD

Dr. Craig Wiener joins host Craig Price to discuss how to treat ADHD without medication. Treating attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder can be tough, especially if your not sure what the best way to treat it actually is. Many doctors just prescribe medication but that often become ineffective over time.

Dr. Wiener shows in his book “Parenting Children with ADHD”  how parents can promote cooperation by phrasing their requests in specific ways, reduce pressure on their child, and acknowledge the child’s preference as a way to make cooperation a more attractive choice to him or her. Parents learn to resolve problems related to messiness, inappropriate silliness and intrusiveness, chores and helping family members, coordinating schedules, sneaking and stealing, noise and yelling, and overreacting. Now all this parent talk makes Craig uncomfortable but the two Craig’s hash out how to address issues without resorting to violence (you can tell Craig has no kids by that statement alone) what’s the difference between a child with ADHD and just a troublemaking kid and why ADHD seems to be getting more widespread each year.
