While raising a son who has ADHD, Cynthia Flash often told people “He comes with an instruction manual. Unfortunately, it’s written in Chinese and I don’t speak Chinese.” So, when she read Penny Williams’ new book about parenting an ADHD son titled, “A Boy Without Instructions,” she naturally felt a strong resonance. In this review, she discusses Williams’ approach to parenting children with ADHD based on collaboration and empathy.
It takes a village to raise a child with ADHD. As parents, we understand the give and take of having a local support network. If you make a commitment to get the support you need – to get training along with coaching or therapy, or whatever else it is you think you need – then you can make real change for your family! Things will improve, dramatically, when you invest in yourself for the good of your child.
