Overview

A Mother's Tale of Life With Her ADHD and Asperger's Son

They're the parents who other people secretly believe must be doing a crappy job, the ones whose children don lacrosse gloves to weed the flowerbed, won't turn in their homework, and throw age-inappropriate tantrums in public. They're the parents one frayed nerve short of a breakdown as they scrub off the giant perceived "L" for Loser on their foreheads, turning for help to every source they can think of, because their kids just don't respond like other kids, because their kids aren't like other kids. Their very brains are wired differently, and the disciplines, motivators, and strategies that are supposed to work on them, according to conventional wisdom, don't. These are the parents of children on the ADHD Spectrum, and most of them have used up their Phone a Friend Lifeline and just want a little understanding and the hope of shared knowledge from someone else who has survived a life like theirs. They are parents like Pamela Fagan Hutchins, whose son, dubbed "Clark Kent the WonderKid," has ADHD and Asperger's Syndrome.

Pamela takes readers on a heart-wrenching and hilarious road trip from toddler to adulthood with Clark Kent and his family, sharing their collective wisdom and empathy along the way.

    What a great book!  We have a grandchild with ADD and loved read

    What a great book!  We have a grandchild with ADD and loved reading the tales of Clark Kent.  Pamela Hutchins has such a knack for writing.  I alternated laughing and crying at the joys and problems of raising a child with special needs.  Pamela is a hands on mom who admits to the struggles and challenges of dealing with her son but we also see a mother who would do anything to see that her child gets the attention and accommodations at school that he deserves.
