About the Author

Donna Mac and her husband live in the Chicago-land area with their three toddlers and two Puggles. Donna has worked professionally with ADHD for 15 years, as a teacher working with early childhood students, a summer camp director, and currently as a clinical therapist in a therapeutic day school with adolescents. She is not just "some teacher" or "some therapist" offering advice: Even more importantly, she is also a mom of twin toddlers diagnosed with ADHD, giving her the personal experience to be able to offer hope and provide relief. She "lives the life" every day and can empathize with you.

This book is a complete resource for parents and teachers. Donna Mac has an easy and clear writing style that simultaneously shares research findings and clinical advice along with her firsthand experience as a teacher, therapist, and a mom. Although the title refers to toddlers, the information Mac shares regarding brain research in ADHD, legal information for parents, and strategies for coping with and advocating for children with ADHD is applicable for kids of all ages, all the way through high school.

As a parent, I found Mac's suggestions for making life easier at home brilliant and useful for parents of children with or without ADHD. She has practical advice for organizing your home, keeping routines, discipline, and even traveling! She also provides many real examples from her own life to illustrate how these strategies can be used.

As a teacher, I found that the information in this book was incredibly enlightening. Understanding why and how children with ADHD understand the world and the people around them really helped me empathize more with my students and with their parents. Learning to understand the struggles that children with ADHD can experience really helped me see my students' behaviors more clearly. They are not being defiant or disagreeable; they are just trying to cope with the many challenges that ADHD brings to the table. This book also provides strategies for parents and teachers to take away the stigma and judgment often experienced by children and their parents. I would recommend this book to any parent, teacher, or counselor who wants to have a more complete understanding of children of all ages with ADHD.

This is a very complete book. As the mom of four children, two with serious mental illnesses, I was pleased to find such a comprehensive resource being offered out there to families new to this journey. When research and academia meet personal experience, magic happens. Insightful in its offerings, this book speaks to parents on an emotional level, rather than just an academic one. Any parent that has concerns about their child's behavior and what to do with those potential concerns will have a wealth of resource at their fingertips in this book. Congratulations to Donna Mac for this accomplishment!

What a fantastic resource for parents and teachers! This book goes beyond the typical manual outlining the clinical side of ADHD and really aims to speak to those who need guidance on a daily, minute by minute basis! While the author aims to take a closer look at the implications for parents of toddlers with ADHD, this book is a resource that reaches far beyond the toddler years. As a teacher, I found the section about navigating and advocating for your child within the realm of our school systems especially informative! I have also referenced many of the strategies outlined in this book when speaking to parents of students with ADHD across several grade levels.
As a parent, I appreciated the author's candidness and honesty when speaking about typical situations that ALL parents encounter. I have found many of the strategies to be applicable to both typically developing children and those with ADHD. This is a book I will reference again and again as my own children continue to grow and face new behavioral challenges. I highly recommend this book to parents and teachers of children of all ages!

The author is very candid and keeps the reader engaged by adding humor into many situations in the book- Many parents can relate to these situations that toddlers get into- especially out in public! The book is also comprehensive in the sense that it describes symptoms toddlers exhibit that LOOK like ADHD- and why the symptoms might be ADHD or that they might be from something else all together- Regardless of where the symptoms are coming from, the author offers parenting strategies to help!
