Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
For the parent of a son with ADHD, the cover's beaming poster child is emblematic of success: handsome, happy, relaxed, and as comfortable with a notebook in his hands as he might be with a video game controller. As Forgan and Richey reiterate, they are not merely professionals working with boys with ADHD and their parents; each has a son with ADHD as well. The book is informational and action-oriented: terms are explained, and current research and treatment options are explored in language that parents can understand, use with their sons, and disseminate to others. With sections like "Infancy and Preschool," "The Elementary Years," and "The Teenage Years," parents can zero in on current issues, what's ahead, and what's behind them. Practical solutions are given in terms of what help is available in schools, how to access it, and setting specific goals, with a "Dynamic Action Plan" in the concluding section of the book. Focusing largely on their experiences as parents, Forgan and Richey emphasize methods that were effective with their own kids, while downplaying other less-successful treatments and tactics. Throughout, the authors deal extensively with the issue of stigma—internal and external—and provide examples of letters and dialogues parents might use to explain the condition to friends and family. Additionally, Forgan and Richey highlight the many unique strengths of boys with ADHD. Illus. (Mar.)

    Great parent resource

    Raising Boys with ADHD is infinitely parent friendly. The authors demystify ADHD, using plain language and examples from real life. This book goes beyond mere explanations, in that it offers doable action plans. I can imagine parents viewing Raising Boys with ADHD as an essential handbook as they search for understanding and assistance with their sons from babyhood to the teenage years.

    Great Resource

    I was very impressed with the “how to” components in this book and I didn’t feel like the authors were talking down to me. Also appreciate the fact that both authors are not only experience clinicians, but parents of ADHD boys. It is obvious they know what they are talking about.

    Quite informative!

    Lots of useful info if you work with or have an ADHD child. It will help you realize the behaviors you're experiencing are similar to those of other families with children who have ADHD.

    Storage

    A large den filled with shelves and indentations to put herbs, this is where med cats and trainees store what they gather.
