Renowned child and adult psychiatrist, educator and author Dr. Edward Hallowell has this to say about the book:
“This book is a godsend for parents raising kids who have the exciting but often challenging condition called ADHD. Written by a woman 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
How this book helps you parent the child you have…
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 recognize 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.
The principles outlined in 8 Keys to Parenting Children with ADHD are appropriate for parenting kids of all ages―until they have “launched” and are on their own.
A Special Note From The Author:
When I began coaching teens and college students who have ADHD, I quickly discovered that it is often the parents who really need the support. I have met so many wonderful, caring parents who are at a loss as to why they, and their children, struggle so much. The reality is that love and logic are not sufficient when you are dealing with inconsistencies, challenges, and frustrations in raising your child who has ADHD. Once the diagnosis is made, the most important treatment is parent education and training – you often need a Black Belt in parenting!
In working with parents, my philosophy is, “Parent the child you have”. Not the one you thought you would have or that others tell you that you would have if you just parented THEIR way. I help parents and professionals nurture children thought tolerance, empathy, and support, with a healthy balance of guidance, structure and discipline. As I say to parents: “Don’t bend the Universe – too much.” Prepare them for the real world, but know when to give them that extra chance they may need.
