Every year, in schools all across the nation, more and more children are deemed unable to get through class work without the aid of pharmaceuticals. The diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder has reached epidemic proportions. But few answers have emerged to explain why this is so, and fewer solutions do more than mask the symptoms-until now. Bette Lamont describes a key to the cause as well as the cure for behaviors that fall under the too-broad blanket of A.D.D. She identifies common practices in child rearing that may be at the root of the problem, and offers natural, non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical techniques that can actually effect a cure. What's more, by revisiting the needs each of us has as an infant, her methods can also address emotional disturbances and facilitate healing of neurological trauma in adults as well as children. Ms. Lamont's work springs from the understanding that "we don't bring our children into the world to join the race. We don't need the baby that walks first, talks first, or plays the violin first. We bring our babies into the world to fulfill their own personal destiny. If we allow them the time to be who they are as infants, we open up their whole future." (Hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
