by Christine Adamec
Agonize no more, frustrated moms! MOMS WITH ADD is here to help. Rather than pathologize attention deficit disorder or speculate on causes or medical rationales, MOMS WITH ADD enables readers to recognize ADD and optimize their parenting skills. Filled with anecdotes, quotations, and examples, Christine A. Adamec, coauthor of Do You Have Attention Deficit Disorder? offers practical coping strategies for family and job-related concerns.
From the Author
Are you a mother with attention deficit disorder, struggling to be perfect and always falling short? Losing your car and house keys, blurting out comments, finding yourself late all the time? Or you may be a mom with ADD who is able to "hyperfocus"---concentrating on an interesting subject for hours at a time. You're creative, compassionate and a very intriguing woman. Maybe you're both of these women, at different times. Many of us are.
Moms with ADD is for the woman who is struggling as well as for the woman who has most of her "act" together---the book is packed with as much advice as I could cram in, based on interviews with mothers who have ADD, psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers and others.
NOT an "I'm a victim---feel sorry for me!" kind of book---instead, Moms with ADD offers you practical solutions to everyday problems that so many mothers who have ADD face. Coping with teachers, dealing with disciplining your kids, figuring out how to handle things when one child has ADD and the other doesn't. And much more.
I AM a mother with ADD myself, and I know what it's like from the inside out. I used my hyperfocusing and researching/writing skills to bring you practical and useable information that I hope will help.
