by Cindy Goldrich, Ed.M., ADHD-CCSP

This ADHD book for parents is rich with optimism, tips, tools, and action plans. It offers science-based insights and systems for parents to help cultivate these skills.

This book is for you if….

You struggle knowing if you are supporting or enabling your child each time you consider helping. After all – when is it helpful, and when are you creating a crutch? When are you rescuing, and when are you cushioning the impact of their inherent challenges?

This book is for you if….

You wonder how you can get your child to be more cooperative, organized, motivated, productive, or just ready on time! You have tried love; you have tried logic. Perhaps you have tried rewards and punishments.

This ADHD book for parents will help if….

You are looking for understanding, direction, tools, strategies, and a sustainable way to help your children grow into the best version of themselves.

“I have told tons of people about your book, which my husband, parents and I are all reading! As a parenting writer, I've read so many books on subjects like this and I have to say, yours is exceptionally helpful. What I admire most about it, is that it keeps the big picture always in mind, so you don't get too bogged down in the details (but at the same times, it is full of concrete specific strategies). I've learned so much from it. Thank you!“
