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.

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.

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.
