“When my son was diagnosed with ADHD at age 7, my world was rocked. I felt confused, lost, angry, and sad.
As I was researching, I came across your book, Boy Without Instructions — I couldn’t put it down! You are real and practical, and seem to know the thoughts in my head! The book led me to your online course, The Complete Guide to Parenting ADHD. I would still be lost and confused without the extensive knowledge and support I’ve received from your course.
I kid you not, my husband and I would be lost without you. You’ve changed our lives."
-- Sarah Stein
Because, I am one of you!
I am a mom who walked out of the doctor's office with a diagnosis, a couple fact sheets on ADHD, and a prescription — completely bewildered. I wasn't given any direction other than to try medication. I was overwhelmed and, the harder I tried to "fix" it, the more hopeless I became. I struggled like this for more than two years trying to figure out how to best parent my son after diagnosis. Two years of reading obsessively, trying different products, working with therapists, and making it up as I went along, leaping from one crisis to the next with my pants still on fire.
It took me a long time and a lot of heartache to finally discover the steps to success when raising a child with ADHD. I looked back and realized there really is a process to getting a grip on this special parenthood.
