A MUST read for Parents of children with ADD/ADHD,
This review is from: Memoirs of an ADHD Mind: God Was a Genius in the Way He Made Me (Paperback)
Missy creates a clear picture of those diagnosed with ADD/ADHD experience in their lives. Not being ADD or ADHD, I did not "understand" what it was like. My son, who has ADHD, was handled the 'old fashioned' way by me; "Do it and do it now or else!!"
Missy's explanation of what is happening in the brain makes it easier for those of us who do not have ADD/ADHD to understand what they are experiencing. Her life's experiences as well as her connection with GOD pointed her in the right direction but she had to struggle for years before reaching that point.
As a parent of a child with ADHD, I didn't fully understand what my son went through in school. If only this book was written 10 years ago!!! I now have a better understanding of how I as a parent could have worked with him, and more importantly, pressed the SCHOOL to better understand and properly modify his education, in order to help him succeed without the level of difficulty he experienced.
Parents: Read this book!!!! Help your children!! Hold the schools accountable and help them help you and your ADD/ADHD children!! The tools and recommendations Missy lists in her book can be of great assistance.
VERY GOOD job Missy!!! The sky's the limit for you!!
