Publisher's Summary

“An empathetic, personal and practical approach for parents craving relief from the wide-ranging childhood impact of ADHD.” (Mark Bertin, MD, author of Mindful Parenting for ADHD)

Parents: This audiobook is for you.  

Most of us need help to overcome the challenges of parenting a child with ADHD. Watching your bright, vibrant child struggle with ADHD can make you feel helpless, especially when you don’t have the tools to help them succeed. There is a great deal of help available for children with ADHD, but there simply aren’t enough resources for parents of ADHD children - and you need support just as much as your child.  

The National Institute of Mental Health recognizes that frustration, blame, and anger are common in families with ADHD children. Children with ADHD need guidance and understanding from parents to reach their full potential. Yet it can feel impossible to manage the challenges you experience as a parent in order to be the support your child needs.  

Diane Dempster and Elaine Taylor-Klaus are ADHD coaches, educators, and the cofounders of ImpactADHD. They started off just like you, feeling frustrated and lost about how to help their ADHD children - and how to take care of themselves as well. Since that time, they have become national leaders in the world of ADHD, representatives of the voice of parents, and the go-to experts for parenting children with ADHD. They have successfully armed thousands of parents with the tools they need to help themselves and their children with ADHD.  

In Parenting ADHD Now!, Diane and Elaine combine their practical know-how and professional expertise to offer immediate, actionable strategies you can use to guide and support your ADHD child compassionately and effectively.  

The material presented in this audiobook is grounded in three main concepts:  

  • Apply the coach approach to parenting - This unique method gives you permission to pay attention to yourself, build up your own confidence and self-esteem, and apply these tools when working with your child with ADHD. 
  • Use real, practical strategies - Learn to effectively navigate the complex terrain of ADHD, confidently minimize ADHD-related stress in your family, and foster your child’s independence. 
  • Focus on the parent - This is not about “fixing” your ADHD child. This is about shifting your focus inward and empowering yourself so you can empower your child as they navigate life with ADHD. 

You can dramatically improve life for your child with ADHD. With Parenting ADHD Now!, you will learn to set healthy limits, find compassion and acceptance, change your habits, laugh instead of cry, understand instead of yell, and thrive instead of just survive.

Basic

This is very basic. I thought it would be more helpful with strategies to help my son. I was disappointed.

wonderful strategies

I started this book for help with my son, not only did I learn a ton to help him, I learned more about my own ADHD and the strategies to help myself & my relationship with my husband. It also taught me a lot about my youngest child that may not have ADHD but has just not developed fully in his executive functioning yet.

Excellent book

With a recently diagnosed ADHD 5 year old I’ve had whirlwind of emotions and questions, this book has been helpful and has given me some great advice in trying to help my son. Great ideas and an easy listen. I’d recommend to any parent needing some tips on how to help your child with ADHD behaviors.

Very helpful

I really appreciate this book as it made me feel its ok to feel upset with my child not acting the way he knows, but he may not be able to do so at that time. Overall is helping me see the world through his eyes.
