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.

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.

Review by: Richard Lavoie, The F.A.T. City Workshop - December 19, 2011
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.

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.
