This book would have been 4 stars if the whole first third of the book hadn't gone on and on about mindfulness repeatedly. Don't get me wrong, I agree with the concept of mindfulness in helping you deal with life on a daily basis, and difficult situations specifically. The "Listen. Breathe.

I read the two chapters most relevant to my family, and the information and suggesstions were quite helpful. I would recommend this book as an introduction to childhood ADHD and for parents looking for new strategies for supporting their ADHD children. A concept often stressed is parents' own self-care and "mindfulness."

“Mirror neurons fire for something as simple as drinking water and as complex as yelling in anger. When you watch someone else get angry, stress hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol start to flow. You may not always manage stress the way you hope to, but the very fact that you are working on it will benefit your children.” 0 likes
