I Wish I'd Had This Book Earlier!
Reviewed in the United States on August 10, 2018
What a great book! As a parent of two ADHD children, I wish that I'd had it earlier. It makes sense of so much of my experience. I'm sure that many parents will find the practical advice very helpful, but what really moved me was how it explained the ADHD brain and the subjective experience of children with ADHD. So many of the struggles and frustrations that I went through are illuminated here.
Also--the book is extremely readable, something for which I'm very grateful. I pretty much got through the whole thing in about two days
Finally, even though I found this book a little bit late, I have another child at home who does not have ADHD. I have to say that one of the beautiful things about the book is that the empathy and way of thinking that it fosters is extremely helpful to parents of all children. As I was reading through the chapters, I found myself thinking of my other child as well.
