Parenting children with ADHD, whether diagnosed or undiagnosed, can be challenging and complex. But just as a child who struggles with reading can learn to decode words, children with ADHD can learn patience, communication and solution-seeking skills to become more confident, independent and capable. This book, rich with optimism, tips, tools and action plans, offers science-based insights and systems for parents to help cultivate these skills. Combining expert information with practical, sensitive advice, the eight "key" concepts here will help parents reduce chaos, improve cooperation and nurture the advantages-like creativity and drive-that often accompany all of that energy. Based on author Cindy Goldrich's seven-session workshop entitled Calm and Connected: Parenting Kids with ADHD, this book focuses on developing and strengthening effective interpersonal skills in both parents and children as a way to improve conflict resolution. Following the parenting principle to "Parent the child you have", Goldrich offers advice to help readers tailor their parenting to meet the needs of their unique child. The book also leads parents to recognise the value of being a leader and a guide to children, building parents' confidence in their decision-making, and giving children a sense of safety, security and confidence.

"This book is a godsend for parents raising kids who have the exciting but often challenging condition called ADHD. Written by a woman who has helped thousands of parents through her enormously successful parenting workshops and classes, Cindy Goldrich's book is an instant classic." -- Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Driven to Distraction "Parenting is hard enough-parenting a child with ADHD can be downright overwhelming. Cindy Goldrich has managed the Herculean task of distilling her decades of training and experience as a certified ADHD coach into one concise, easy-to-read 'crash course' for parents of a child with ADHD. Better than any other book I've read, it helps parents 'see the world through the eyes of their child with ADHD.' With warmth and wisdom, Goldrich teaches parents to deal with the myriad frustrations and challenges, create a loving, supportive relationship with their child, and get back to the rewarding aspects of parenting. This book will be a wonderful resource for parents, grandparents, caregivers, teachers, and clinicians alike for years to come." -- George Bush, MD, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School "This is the first book you want to read when navigating your way through the maze of parenting children with ADHD. Cindy Goldrich provides a clear, informative guide filled with valuable tips and tools. She blends her expertise in coaching and parenting to create a book you will use as a resource and a grounding tool from grade school through the teen years. Fantastic!" -- Jodi Sleeper-Triplett, MCC, SCAC, BCC, JST Coaching & Training, Author of Empowering Youth With ADHD
