How does bipolar disorder affect learning? Is there a cure? Is this a fad diagnosis? How do I handle manipulation? How can I prevent relapses? Should I use alternative treatments? How can I parent effectively?

Co-written by a doctor and a mother whose children live with bipolar disorder, The Childhood Bipolar Disorder Answer Book explains confusing medical lingo and provides straightforward answers to all your pressing questions about treatment, parenting strategies, and everything else.

  • How is childhood bipolar disorder different from an adult onset?
  • What are the earliest symptoms?
  • Why is my child so irritable?
  • How young can these symptoms manifest?
  • Should all family members be evaluated for bipolar disorder?
  • Will my child lead a normal life?
Written in an easy-to-read Q&A format, The Childhood Bipolar Disorder Answer Book helps you understand and accept your child and develop a plan for success.
