Once considered an adult illness, bipolar disorder (manic depression) is one of the fastest growing categories in child psychiatry since ADHD, touching the lives of an estimated one million children. But often it goes misdiagnosed, and children can be prescribed medication that only worsens their condition. Parents are desperate for someone to guide the way through this difficult time. With her twenty-five years of clinical experience, child psychiatrist Rosalie Greenberg offers families a lifeline--a book filled with sage, practical, and reassuring advice for anyone struggling to help a child locate that elusive inner calm.With a revolutionary approach that sees the brilliance, the sweetness, the creativity in bipolar kids, Dr. Greenberg gathers their stories and their parents' stories to open a window onto these children who have for so long gone misunderstood. She walks readers through the different scenarios that may occur with bipolar kids, from daring manic phases to sudden periods of overwhelming sadness. She shows parents how best to navigate the peaks and valleys of bipolar disorder and provides them with the assurance that they need not tackle this illness alone. Most important, she encourages adults to listen to what children say through the maze of their mania and depression, for this can make all the difference in diagnosing and successfully managing bipolar disorder. Bipolar Kids offers parents welcome understanding, guidance, and most of all hope that their child, with the proper interventions, can lead a productive and successful life.

Dr. Greenberg has compassion and a deep understanding of the Bipolar child. She makes it clear it is not the fault of bad parenting and makes the case for how these families need nonjudgmental support. She outlines treatment options and helps the reader approach these kids with a new perspective. It's truly not their fault when they act as they do. I would have liked more information of the comorbidity of Bipolar and other Special Needs, but all in all a book well worth reading if you are dealing with this issue or want to help someone who is.

My son was recently diagnosed with bipolar and i have only just started to read this book. But i can tell it is going to be a great resource for my husband and I to learn more about the illness and help us to help our son.

I was happy to find a book that addressed the unique situation of having a child who has more than one diagnosis. Our son has both high functioning autism and pediatric bipolar disorder, and until I read BIPOLAR KIDS, I never really understood how it all worked together.

His psychiatrist has been trying many of the medications discussed in Dr. Greenberg's book, which now will become a great a reference tool for whenever changes have to be made. The book also includes many forms of therapy inwhich our son has been involved over the years. Now I have a better appreciation of why different therapies worked at different ages and what might be available for him in the future.

Although she is a psychiatrist, Dr. Greenberg does offer some advice on how to make sure that your child is getting all that he or she is entitled to in school. She offers advice for teachers, school counselors, nurses, or anyone else who comes in contact with kids like our's throughout the day.

It is also comforting to know that we are not alone as parents. Reading BIPOLAR KIDS showed me that other parents have encountered many of the same problems and triumphs we have. My husband and I are extremely proud of our son's artistic ability. He studied many forms of dance for eight years before he "retired," but has been seriously and successfully studying water colors for the last two years. We had to wonder where this talent came from because neither of us can paint.

We were amazed and amused when we learned in BIPOLAR KIDS that our son was not alone. There are stories of many famous people throughout history who were either bipolar or who later were thought to have been bipolar. Somehow knowing that our son may have something in common with Sir Winston Churchill, Ludwig van Beethoven, Vincent van Gogh, and President Abraham Lincoln is somewhat comforting and perhaps even a little encouraging.

I am considering buying a copy of BIPOLAR KIDS for our son's teachers and his grandparents. I may even give a copy to his pediatrician, because at times I am not sure he believes me. Our son is always so well behaved in public.

It's nice to read a book that is informative and NOT boring. There are lots of stories about her patients, many of which will make you chuckle or maybe see glimpses of your own child like we did.

This book is an excellent resource for any parent of a child with bipolar disorder, as there are so few resources out there. It is comprehensive, easy to understand, up-to-date, and very informative, approaching topics relevant to parents struggles with issues applying to their bipolar child. An especially important chapter is the one on medications, and the fact that he goes over each one specifically. Another major problem that parents face is "Is it bipolar disorder or something else?" Too many children have been misdiagnosed as bipolar disorder (manic) when it is just ADHD, and this book addresses that, as well as other disorders of misdiagnosis. The main thing is that this book shows parents how to traverse the peaks and valleys of their child's wild bipolar mood swings, with practical advice and illustrative examples that any parent can follow. I especially like the part at the end called "Real Life, Real Answers." I highly recommend this book as a resource.

I loved this book! If you have a bi-polar child, this is THE book to read! Very informative at every turn in your adventures! Highly recommended.
I originally took this book out of the library, but bought four copies, because it has been so helpful in understanding what my daughter has been going through and in explaining why "normal" parenting techniques do no work with BD kids. I am giving copies to my family members, so that they can understand as well.
