I am about 1/2 way into this book and love it. It gives wonderful ideas/suggestions on how to handle situations successfully. It has confirmed many things for me and has helped to know that raising a child with ADD is difficult and that feeling frustrated is not a weakness in me however a normal feeling. I have found that the teachers in schools have no understanding of how to teach and assist children with ADD. They continually tell me that my child doesn't pay attention. I am not sure how many times I must try and make them understand, that I know! I believe all teachers should read this book as it gives great ideas on useful tools for the class room. Great reading and highly educational.

It explains how to connect with your child and navigate through all aspects of ADHD. Excellent alternatives to frustration and particular focus on positive attributes of children with ADHD. I especially love how this book gives older siblings tools and explanations on how to better help their younger sibling struggling with ADHD.
