Description de l'ouvrage

19 janvier 1999
Does your imaginative, computer-proficient daughter tune out in the classroom? Does your spirited son become headstrong and aggressive when faced with the simplest decisions? Does your bold, energetic child have trouble focusing on basic tasks?

Millions of children--one in five--have what psychologist Lucy Jo Palladino, Ph.D., calls the Edison trait: dazzling intelligence, an active imagination, a free-spirited approach to life, and the ability to drive everyone around them crazy. Named after Thomas Edison--who flunked out of school only to harness his talents and give the world some of its finest inventions--the Edison trait is on the rise in our younger generation.

The heart of the issue is that they think divergently--they overflow with many ideas--while schools, organized activities, and routines of daily living reward convergent thinking, which focuses on one idea at a time. Drawing on examples from more than two decades of private practice, Dr. Palladino helps us cope with this challenging aspect of our child's intellect and personality, explaining in clear terms:

- The three Edison-trait personality types: dreamers, discoverers, and dynamos
- The eight steps to understanding, reaching, and teaching your Edison-trait child
- The connection between the Edison trait and A.D.D.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 excellent encouragement and suggestions for parents 11 octobre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book, along with Armstrong's "The Myth of the A.D.D. Child" may literally "save the souls" of many non-conforming children (and adults). Instead of pitting parents against their children as so much of the A.D.D. literature does, Palladino puts them on the same team, helping parents recognize their child's strengths. What a world we would have if individuals were appreciated for their diversity and individuality, instead of labeling them as deficient. I hope many other parents and educators will read this book, and let it affect how they treat children.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An unique insight and techniques that brings amazing result. 15 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
I was at my wits end when I accidently picked up this book. Thank God! I have benefited by the methods suggested by Lucy. I am seeing breakthrough in my relationship with my 2 boys.
My son has demonstrated a lot of the behaviour traits as highlighted in the book. Before I gained the understanding on his gift, I was adopting the traditional methods to "help" him be more disciplined. Not only did I bring out the worst of both my sons, I was seeing a downhill pattern on our relationship with one another. Thank God! I was introduced to the concept of Divergent by a friend. And one day while I was browsing in a book store, I came across this book. I have never finished a book from back-to-back without stopping. And this is probably the first within a short time. I've tried some of the methods adopted by Lucy in my interaction with my sons. Especially when I am coaching him to do his school works. I am more than pleased with the results I am seeing. I often catch myself smiling within when I observe the improvement in my children.
I have one request. I really like to be in touch with the author Lucy to explore any opportunity for her to share her experience outside of the US. I really wish more parents can benefit from her works. Appreciate if you can provide me with her correspondance address.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Parents of Divergent/Gifted Children: This is a MUST-READ 3 février 2004
Par Jill Schafer Boehme - Publié sur Amazon.com
Dr. Palladino has captured the essence of the "divergent" child and shattered the ADD/ADHD myth.
Does your child seem to always have his head in the clouds? Have trouble remembering to do what he has been told? Can't seem to sit still? Talk incessently about whatever subject he's currently passion-filled?
In short, does he drive you crazy and you're at the end of your rope?
This book is for you. Dr. Palladino does a beautiful job describing the divergent mind (that is, the mind that can think of "many things at once"), how it works, why it usually DOESN'T work in a traditional public school setting, and how to deal with the divergent child who just doesn't seem to "fit in." According to Dr. Palladino, many children are misdiagnosed as having ADD or ADHD when they actually have a certain personality trait that she has coined, "The Edison Trait" after Thomas Edison. These Edison Trait children are divergent thinkers -- and are usually bright, gifted children.
Read this book BEFORE you talk to your pediatrician. Read this book BEFORE you talk to your child's teacher. The insight and helpful information within this pages make this book an invaluable tool in the hands of any parent with an "Edison Trait" child.
(And yes, I am mother to three such children myself.)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Expert help to equip you to stand up for your special child 9 février 2001
Par hbullz - Publié sur Amazon.com
What an absolute lifesaver! As parents of two kids- (one dreamer and one dynamo) we had run through the endless "experts" in our town for answers. This is a priceless resource for anyone who wants to stand up with facts to experts in both the medical and the school-related fields. It gives reasons for behavior and what works ,and more importantly, why what a lot of people want you to do won't work! I have given it to each teacher/specialist who works with my children. Her advice does work and your special bright child will blossom with it. It is written in an engaging and segmented format. Be sure to read the part addressing whether or not to medicate. Perfect for carpool wait times as most parents of these bright and energetic kids don't get any other time to sit still!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For all new parents out there 5 octobre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
What a book!!! I am the mother of 4 precious kids, one is a combination discoverer-dynamo (see explanation in the book), one is dyslexic and the two others will be a surprise. This book covers it all and the best part is that it is all positive. Dr. Palladino gives us a taste of the futur in our children and it's fantastic. She explains how to get there without going ballistic and the examples of Edisonian traits adults i.e. Henry Ford, and Edison himself among others. What an inspiration to my child!!!Thanks so much. The advice can be used even if you don't have an Edison trait child. It's great and doable.
