Raising Boys with ADHD is a reasoned and reasonable, practical and inspirational guide for parents focused on preparing boys with ADHD to transition successfully into a happy, functional and emotionally healthy adult life. Forgan and Richey are experienced clinicians, deftly blending their knowledge of science and experience to create a practical, readable and useful guide for parents of boys with ADHD. This volume will be on my short list of books I recommend to parents of children with ADHD.

I know a lot about boys with ADHD. I have worked with hundreds of them, we raised one, and I was one. I found Raising Boys With ADHD to be filled with insights, information and information that would be extraordinarily useful for parents who are facing the daunting—but rewarding—job of guiding a child with ADHD through the shoals of boyhood.
The book offers practical advice and up-to-date information on this puzzling disorder. Beyond merely defining the problems, the authors provide solutions and strategies. This book will go a long way in enhancing your knowledge and parenting techniques. Read this book. Keep it close by. Refer to it. Reread it. Its contents will help you to better understand the needs of your "unhappy wanderer."
Review: Publishers Weekly - March 19, 2012
The book is informational and action-oriented: terms are explained, and current research and treatment options are explored in language that parents can understand, use with their sons, and disseminate to others.
