Why We Love This Gift: Parenting a child with ADHD offers some challenges. This book arms parents with effective strategies for managing situations. And, importantly, for learning how to find and emphasize the gifts of attention issues. (Hint: they are abundant).
What To Express In Your Card: I saw this book and I was interested to read about attention issues. My pediatrician says that this is a misnomer - that ADHD should just be called Attention Deficit - that the word disorder is unfair. There are so many ways to channel this learning style. I hope this book helps you with the stuff that feels hard. [Name of child] is a totally awesome kid.
