  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jacob Cruzan | 2/10/2014

    " This is a great book on helping children learn and develop life skills. The authors simply label 11 skills parent need to help their children develop and they provide strategies to help parents help their kids. In an age where every mis behavior is some kind of disorder, this book offers good insight into addressing these behaviors and correcting them. I would recomment this book to all parents or parents to be. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tiffany | 2/3/2014

    " I stumbled across this and bought it after the descriptions fit my non-ADHD oldest son. It's clearly written with lots of examples. It also has specific strategies to try to help kids strengthen their executive skills. I haven't been applying the strategies long enough to know if they work, but I feel optimistic about it. "

It has great strategies on how to communicate and motivate kids with certain E.F. issues. I'm debating buying it as a perpetual reference guide. "
