A no-cost, nonpharmaceutical treatment plan for children with behavioral and mental health challenges

Increasing numbers of parents grapple with children who are acting out without obvious reason. Revved up and irritable, many of these children are diagnosed with ADHD, bipolar illness, autism, or other disorders but don't respond well to treatment. They are then medicated, often with poor results and unwanted side effects. Based on emerging scientific research and extensive clinical experience, integrative child psychiatrist Dr. Victoria Dunckley has pioneered a four-week program to treat the frequent underlying cause, Electronic Screen Syndrome (ESS).

Dr. Dunckley has found that everyday use of interactive screen devices -- such as computers, video games, smartphones, and tablets -- can easily overstimulate a child's nervous system, triggering a variety of stubborn symptoms. In contrast, she's discovered that a strict electronic fast single-handedly improves mood, focus, sleep, and behavior, regardless of the child's diagnosis.

Offered now in this book, this simple intervention can produce a life-changing shift in brain function -- all without cost or medication. Dr. Dunckley provides hope for parents who feel that their child has been misdiagnosed or inappropriately medicated, by presenting an alternative explanation for their child's difficulties and a concrete plan for treating them.

The info in this book makes a lot of sense!
I've seen so many children addicted to electronic devices.
After reading it, I limited my son's use and his sweet personality returned. We didn't go zero tolerance, though for some children it's necessary.
I have recommended this book to several parents, especially those whose children have special needs and are hooked on these devices.

With today's prolific use screens among all ages, this is a valuable read for all parents. We took the challenge to try the screen-free experiment. A must read.
