Why Can't My Child Behave? is written by Jane Hersey, national director of the Feingold Association and editor of the Pure Facts Newsletter. In its 400 pages, this book comprises 30 years of experience in the Feingold Association -- experience helping thousands of new members help their children, and experience being a member and watching her own children grow.

In the 1970s, Dr. Ben Feingold's work shook up the medical and industrial establishments in the United States and abroad. Since then, it has continued to have a positive effect on the lives of many thousands of people and to trigger far-reaching changes in what we eat and how health, learning and behavior are perceived.

Why Can't My Child Behave? is a comprehensive guide to the Feingold Program, updated for today's busy families. It shows you the most common reasons that children have trouble behaving, and why a bright child may have problems in school. And it is loaded with realistic solutions to the issues faced every day by parents of hard-to-raise kids.
