Marilyn Wedge, Ph.D. is a family therapist who has helped children, adolescents and families since 1988. She began writing her book Pills are Not For Preschoolers: A Drug-Free Approach for Troubled Kids, when she saw more and more children coming to therapy already taking psychiatric medications.

Her latest book, A Disease Called Childhood: Why ADHD Became an American Epidemic
, extends Dr. Wedge's unprecendently popular article"Why French Kids don't have ADHD"  (which now has 7.5 million readers)..

A Disease Called Childhood answers the questions "Is ADHD a genetically based disorder?" "What roles do schools play in a child's getting an ADHD diagnosis?" "What does neuroscience teach us about ADHD?" "Is there anything parents can do to help their ADHD child besides giving them medication?" and many others.There is a chapter on nutrition and one on the role of media exposure. Parents will find this book a treasure to keep with them throught the journey of child rearing.

Dr. Wedge's previous book, Pills are not for Preschoolers
draws on her years of experience with hundreds of children, teenagers and families. The book shows how parents can be empowered to turn around their child's problem behaviors safely and effectively, without the use of stigmatizing psychiatric labels or potentially harmful medications. A Disease Called Childhood looks at the latest medical research about ADHD and presents parents with practical tools and techniques to help their ADHD child.
