Do you have a child, a close friend, or a relative with ADHD? Do you have ADHD and always feel marginalized? Do you think "ADHD" as a term is often wrongly used? Do you think that ADD or ADHD is just an excuse for bad behavior? If your answer is "yes" to any of these questions, you are invited to come along.
This is a true story about friendship, understanding, and accepting our differences. You can relate, understand, and reflect upon these ideas through my experiences with my friend and her son (from ages 6 to 11), who was diagnosed with ADHD. You can find comfort through seeing that you are not alone.
Many things aren't simply black or white. Every person is complex. Are our environments and life situations our own fault? We can't choose our parents, and we can't pick what genes we inherit, but we can control how we behave and treat other people.
Let's stop pointing our fingers at others. Let's stop being judgmental toward anyone who's not like us. They didn't ask to be different, and they are human just like anyone else. Let's embrace everyone's uniqueness and find a way to live in harmony.
Life is hard, but it can be so beautiful.

There are a lot of children diagnosed with ADHD who are attending regular schools and living with parents who are doing the best they can. This is a true story about a mother and her son who faced the daunting task of surviving in a world that does not understand the full extent of ADHD and its effects on the family. This book is written from the standpoint of love and compassion, of understand and caring. By writing this book the author is bringing ADHD to the forefront, it’s giving people an opportunity to take a glimpse in to another person’s life and see it from their perspective. ADHD doesn’t have to be a negative diagnosis if society chooses to accept it and those who have it for who they are and how wonderful they are, life can be beautiful for everyone regardless of any diagnosis. This is a wonderfully written book and it makes you stop and think. It only takes a few hours to read and yet it can change your outlook on this and other diagnosis forever and for the better. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
