Editorial Reviews

Additional News
Moms with ADD is a refreshing, easy-to-navigate book and a must-have for any mom touched by attentional difficulties.
Colleen Alexander-Roberts
Extremely valuable and empowering...A must-read for mothers with ADD who are trying to raise a family, balance a career, and maintain a home while dealing with this syndrome. This book is a gold-mine resource filled with practical information, advice, and valuable suggestions for the reader. I enthusiastically recommend it.
Addvance - Kathleen Nadeau
Finally, an honest, realistic book for mothers with ADD. Moms with ADD is not just one more description of impossibly "perfect" parenting in yet another parenting book that leaves us feeling terribly inadequate. Chris Adamec does a great job of describing the dilemmas faced by women with ADD as they try to keep up with the juggling act of raising children, managing a household, often while holding down a full-time job.
Library Journal
It's tough enough to live with attention deficit disorder (ADD), but adding motherhood to the mix can be overwhelming. Adamec (How To Live with a Mentally Ill Person, LJ 7/96) offers sound advice on how a mother with ADD can deal with the everyday tasks of running a home, working with teachers, juggling work, and solving family problems. Regarding school issues, the author shares tips on preparing for a conference, helping that includes homework, and considering such alternatives as charter schools. Helpful diets, prescribed medications, and support groups are also covered.Above all, for ADD moms plagued with guilt and self-blame, Adamec gives positive, it's-gonna-work-out advice. A highly helpful, practical guide for all public libraries that indludes web sites, organizations, camps, and school info.--Linda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, PA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Kathleen Nadeau
Chris Adamec does a great job of describing the dilemmas faced by women with ADD as they try to keep up with the juggling act of raising children and managing a household, often while holding down a full-time job...At times she is sympathetic and humorous, at other times, very serious as she reviews a wide range of concerns.

After opening chapters that focus more on women's ADD issues, Chris turns to parenting---from pregnancy and new motherhood, to the elementary school years, to high school. At each step of the way she offers quotes from mothers with ADD as well as from female professionals in the field, almost giving the reader the feeling that she is sitting in a support group for moms with ADD.

    A must read!

    This book is me in a nutshell. She has a wonderful understanding of adult ADD, and the distrations we have as moms. One of the two books I continue to reference to be a better, calmer, more patient mom
