Saved my family

This book was so helpful for me understanding my daughter. Helping in areas of understanding her limits and the reason she behaves a certain way. ADHD is such a tough topic because everyone (even when having no knowledge on the subject) seem to have opinions and views of how we as parents must be doing something wrong. Yet my daughters twin sister behaves completely different and is very well behaved.
I have a very busy life and find it difficult to find time to read now adays so having #Audible1 is so wonderful. It’s incredible to be able to clean and cook and “read” at the same time.

If you love someone with ADHD...

If you love someone with ADHD please take the time to listen to this book in full. Opening the door to this scientific point of view has stopped me in my tracks from traveling down a failed path many parents before me have. My son is happy. I am happy. The school day is improving. I do not feel like the school is fighting us but working with us thanks to the tips and information provided in this book. My expectations are still realistic and I know what to do when symptoms seem to explode. I now know what ADHD is and that makes is manageable.

Excellent source of critical information

Excellent source for parents learning to understand ADHD. Abby Craden does a wonderful job of narrating such a technical and sensitive subject. The author hits all the important points with precision & compassion for parents and their kids.

Information and Advice That Helps

This book was hard to listen to at first. After hearing all the statistics and problems that the ADHD child or adult faces, I felt depressed and somewhat helpless to stop these behaviors that are so prevalent in my son, who is now 13. As I kept listening, however, I learned parents of children with ADHD are faced with impossible decisions every day, making their tasks much more difficult and challenging than the parents of an average child. So...being the super parent that I am, I continued to listen and try to understand what on earth I am supposed to do with this kid.

I really identified with the story told at the beginning of a mom who said she was losing her son and needed help. There have been times when I felt that way. Over and over you lecture and scold to try and make them see and help them understand good behavior from the bad. Then they start to resent you and suddenly, you start to realize there’s a much bigger problem to deal with, your son doesn’t even like you anymore. I would be lying if I said there wasn’t a time when I pushed my son beyond the boundaries of what our relationship could handle.

This book really does do a wonderful job of explaining the ADHD disorder. It offers resources and practical solutions for us parents who really want to know more about the disorder. I do want to become the “scientific parent” the book mentions is necessary to be prepared and better able to help these kids who have it. As I listened to this book I was in the process of having my son diagnosed. The information and resources I was provided by the psychologist very appropriately aligned with what the book was giving me. It helped to know that I was on the right track and doing everything I could to help him.

Though most days I’m still humming to the tune of “how to save a life” there are times when some strategy or advice worked, then suddenly, everything feels so normal. On those days I’m humming “what a wonderful world” and I know everything is as it should be. So the advice and strategies can help and do work.

Step one towards understanding ADHD Kids

This book should be your step one towards understanding ADHD. My daughter psychologist was impressed by the amount of information I had in very short time about ADHD and ADHD kids, thanks to Russell Barkley.

A must-have in your quest to help your ADHD child

Great book giving a thorough overview and explanation on ADHD in school-going children, the treatments, drugs used and addressing any concerns. Every parent of an ADHD child should own this book! (And every clinician treating them!)

Scientific & in-depth

Gave me a new perspective on ADHD. A bit depressing but helpful. Maybe too in-depth for audio.

Mom of ADD child

This book was the most comprehensive and up to date one I've found. As a physician myself, I appreciate the scientific references and clinical advice.

A good book for parents starting to seek help.

I am a parent who also struggles with adhd and am seeking help on how better to parent my adhd daughter. I believe this would have been a good read if I hadn't already read many of the references books and knew most of the information given. This book does give good advice, I was just hoping for more!
