Raising healthy and confident children is the topic of this conversation between Dr. Hallowell and The Reverend Chip Edens.

Ned Hallowell M.D., Ed.D. is a psychiatrist, bestselling author, and renowned speaker. He has authored eighteen books on various psychological topics, including attention deficit disorder, the power of human connection, raising happy children, methods of forgiving others, dealing with worry, and managing excessive busyness. He has been interviewed on Dr. Oz, Oprah, 20/20, 60 Minutes, CNN, The Today Show, Good Morning America and "The New York Times," "Time" Magazine, and the "Harvard Business Review."

Considered one of the foremost experts on the topic of ADHD, Hallowell co-authored "Driven to Distraction" with Dr. John Ratey. This book, along with "Answers to Distraction," have sold more than a million copies.

Hallowell and his wife (a couples' therapist) wrote "Married to Distraction: Restoring Intimacy and Strengthening Your Marriage in an Age of Interruption" to help couples avoid destructive roadblocks created by the avalanche of busy living.

In his recent book, The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness, Hallowell says that children don’t need perfect lives or even a traditional family to thrive; they need unconditional love and the opportunity for play, mastery, and recognition.
