Let's Get Focused



Part of the Total Focus program is a disc for your child to listen to. It was only about 15 minutes long, but getting Tristen to sit still and actually listen to it took four attempts. I ended up having to go sit Indian style in the center of the living room with him to help get him away from distractions.

I was so happy that he listened to this disc and actually let it sink in. He now realizes that he is not dumber than everyone else, he is not a bad kid, and he is not retarded...all things he has said before. We've tried to reassure him about this, but I don't think he believed us. Now he knows that his brain just doesn't work like everyone elses and that is not the end of the world. It was such a blessing to see him relieved and understanding that he is different, but he can find ways to manage his differences.

My next post on the Total Focus will cover the bonus disc ADHD: First Aid for Parents.

My 8 year old son has adhd, and it seems to be getting worse. He's on meds, which do help his focusing problem, but he is still acting out. Please, please, please let me know if this is helping yall. I looked it up after reading your blog, but I couldn't find any feedback or reviews about the product. Let me know. I'm starting to get frustrated and that's not good for any of us! Thanks!

Any hints here for CG's ADD?

My son was just diagnosed with ADHD. I saw Total Focus on line but it seems expensive and I was not sure if it was worth it. Does it have a suggested daily schedule for the games and activities? Is it really worth the $150?
Thanks!
