Parent's & Professionals Talk About Bipolar Kids

 

Dr. Greenberg, Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have a 9-year-old son, finally diagnosed with juvenile bipolar disorder at age 8 after 5 years of constant struggle with the medical community and the school system. I was constantly told my son was just "being a boy," that he was simply the result of "bad parenting," or that "something" was taking place in our home to cause his behavior. No one took my concerns seriously until he had a major meltdown in school - screaming, yelling, throwing chairs for which he earned a full physical restraint for an hour and then melting into tears for an additional 2-hour period. I was fortunate enough to find a good psychiatrist almost immediately; my son was already involved in psychotherapy. Both doctors were able to speed up the neuro-psych evaluation process. I guess my point is that I have a bookcase filled with books on bipolar disorder, ADHD, and sensory integration dysfunction. None have been as informative as Bipolar Kids. The book is written in "plain English" and is easy to follow and understand. It explains the vast differences between bipolar disorder in adults and that in children, and it provides parents and caregivers with the realization that not all children with bipolar disorder share the exact same symptoms. Dealing with my son day after day can be extremely exhausting, both mentally and physically, but I know I am not alone. Your book provided proof that other children are experiencing the same symptoms as my son and that other parents are dealing with the same issues and frustrations. That was oddly comforting. Thank you again. Your book has been very helpful and informative. I intend to recommend it to everyone.
