    1 thought on “Only A Mother Could Love Him: How I Lived With And Triumphed Over Adhd”

    1. For anyone who has a child with ADHD, this book is a godsend. I was flabbergasted from page 1. They were telling my life story! It is truly amazing

    2. The writing style was odd - more like someone chatting, adding in little thoughts here and there as the author thought of them. Wish it could have been organized better. Still, I liked the idea of someone with ADD writing about their personal experiences. My heart broke for this little kid who was so hard to love! I would have liked this book more if it was combined with well thought out and organized advice for helping kids with ADD at different ages.

    3. As a teacher of a student with severe ADHD, it was really interesting and enlightening to read the students' point of view. This book would be great for parents of children with ADHD to read.

    4. As a mother of a child with ADHD and Aspergers, I highly recommend this book to parents, carers, grandparents & friends alike!

    5. This book, written by young man who has ADHD himself, should be handed to every parent after their child receives the diagnosis. By sharing his stories and some techniques that have helped him along his path, we can see beyond the label and into the human experience of ADHD.

    6. Based on his descriptions of his experiences, it is a great feat that he wrote this book. It is full of personal opinion, but it's almost as if he's claiming to be the ultimate authority on ADHD. It has sparked my interest in ADHD as a learning disability, because he only touches briefly on actual facts and research. The writing makes it clear that he still has a lot of maturing to do. I expect a later revision may really sharpen the language and style.

    7. Enjoyed reading about this boys journey into manhood dealing with ADD. His perspective is more valuable than any psychology book written by mere observations. He lived it and is dealing with his condition quite successfully to boot! Very eye opening with a lot of down to earth advice. Humor and patience is the message here. Good Read!

    8. enjoyed this book. My wee boy has adhd so i found this book very helpful to see how someone copes with adhd. would recommend anyone to read this book. I felt much betterin myself after i read it.

    9. A great book to encourage parents and teachers of ADHD children. Also a great insight into their thought processes. There are also helpful hints on how to deal with or manage the condition.

    10. If nothing else, this will prepare the parents who are perusing all the biographical accounts/parenting help books about kids with ADD etc. for dealing with what might happen when they become teens.
