Kate's been having trouble focusing and functioning in school, and trouble handling her frustration. She's also prone to anxiety and some OCD-like behaviors, and often feels like no one understands her. When a friend mentioned this book, Reset Your Child's Brain, by Dr. Victoria L. Dunckley, I thought it was worth checking out. I still haven't finished the book (it's rather long) but I was completely convinced by the first chapter. She recommends a three-week period of no electronics at all, to reduce attention, behavior, and other problems. I talked to Kate about it and we're giving it a go. The fact that she was willing indicates that she knows something needs to change. I hope it helps. Fifth grade has been hard on her and on us.
