Trista A. (Tabeloe) reviewed The Bipolar Child: The Definitive and Reassuring Guide to Childhood's Most Misunderstood Disorder (Revised and Expanded Edition) on
Helpful Score: 3
This is a very informative book and very interesting to read. If I had read this book earlier, there would have been no doubt that my young child was bipolar. The authors truly care about educating the public and are involved in research to further our understanding of Bipolar D/O in children. As a parent I have heard that bipolar disorder cannot be diagnosed in children, but this is not true. My son showed signs of being "different", as soon as he was born. You will not be disappointed in this book.
It gives great examples of what other parents have seen in their young children, from infancy on up.
A "MUST READ" for every parent of a bp child. To me it is my BP Bible. I used to think I was a bad parent until I read about this brain disorder. I know I am not alone, I know more about medications and therapy. The book even mentions an on-line support group, which has been a life saver to me as well.
