Really depressing

This book focuses 95% on the negative behaviors of children with ADHD and paints a dismal picture of their development.

I finished the book feeling like my child is “a problem to be solved” and didn’t have any sense of the unique gifts that come with a different brain. There is also a lot of parent blaming, implying that parents hold kids back and are the reason kids don’t learn to self-regulate or make decisions, focus, etc.

She emphasizes that ADHD is “not a medical diagnosis” and “not biological” which is just flat-out wrong and misleading.

She provides no strategies for helping your child beyond “don’t do X, you’re doing it wrong, your child will always have problems.”

Finally, the voice at times sounds like it’s text-to-speech software, very robotic.

I hated this book.

I'm an adult with ADHD Terrible book.

Diagonsed at 5 after extensive testing by a family doctor, I'm now 28 and expecting my first child. I am *still* ADHD.

I'm not even sure where to start unpacking this. I knew after the introduction I was in for a ride and it kept on getting worse. I do not think the author has an understanding or grasp on ADHD or parenting with ADHD.

First of all ADHD is not a personality trait and you do not grow out of it. It is a neurological disorder, it is with you forever. Sure, over time some symptoms can be easier to control. The ADHD brain is not neurotypical, it functions and develops differently and the chemical makeup is also different. We lack dopamine, which is why medication helps us so much and thats why some will seek riskier behavior, hyperfocus on activities they love, ect... for those little spurts of dopamine while unmedicated.

The benefits of medicating outweigh any risks and there are multiple, multiple studies to back this up. Unmedicated ADHDrs are more likely to: take risks, have risky sexual encounters, engage in dangerous activities, have accidents, suffer from depression and anxiety, ect... I tried being unmedicated for a decade. Going back on medication and feeling calm, a feeling I hadn't felt in over a decade, was surreal. Treating your child's disorder is not 'doping' or harmful and this authors suggestion is incredibly harmful. Medication allows us to function like a neurotypical person because of our chemical imbalances. There have been numerous long term studies on the safety of stimulants. The stigma around them needs to be shattered.

If you follow this authors advice you will damage your child more than you will help them. You can see this on the 1.4 million member adhd reddit board. Do not tell them to try harder. Do not tell them its just a personality trait. Do NOT do what this author advises. Absolutely terrible book written by someone who, I highly doubt, has ever lived with or parented ADHD children.

Computerized?

I'm sorry, I could not even get past the first couple paragraphs. I do not know if this was actually read, or if it was put in a program to be read from a computer. The fluctuation of words and tone were super off. my personal ADD just could not handle.

Worst audiobook I have read

First, it was the worst performance I have encountered on Audible. I had a very difficult time following the narrator's extremely monotone reading.

Second, while it seems to identify the problem well, the solutions were not at all clear and actionable.

Given all the positive feedback I was very excited given that we struggle a lot with our ADHD child. This was unfortunately a huge disappointment.

Some good tips

I found some of the tips helpful. However, it focused more on the hyperactive parts of adhd and didn't really give much advice on dealing with actual attention deficits problems. Like how to get a bored kid to stop daydreaming. The narrator had little inflection in her voice and was difficult to listen to.

Great audiobook for caretaker of my dragon child

My son is a little extra at times! He’s very funny and into mischief, but sometimes just down right difficult. We are gentle and peaceful parents, and try to have endless patience. This audiobook is perfect for that sentiment.

terrible start to say ADHD is not medical

how can this book be available with outdated inaccurate information.
ASHA is very much a medical condition and not just a personality trait. Do not purchase.

best audiobook on this topic I have listen

Well researched, but easy to listen, everyone with kids or working in childcare should listen this and make changes on its recommendation. Don't be out of by the fact it mentioned autism and adhd etc, the advice is relevant for every child (and adult too for that matter).

happy and productive I become in the long term

The audiobook is very very good, and is very helpful. I am 26 myself but I have greatly benefited from this audiobook as well. The more I reduce the time I spend in front of a screen the more calmer, peaceful, happy and productive I become in the long term. I highly recommend this audiobook for everyone as it is very important to know how sceen time can affect all of us, especially children.

From theory to practice of positive parenting!

Sarah Snowden is definitely a specialist in her field and delivers a very reasoned exposition of principles, but when you listen her audiobooks, you feel as if she has been there right along with you. Its written to sort of hold your hand through the process. Like a good friend that has gone through something and is helping you learn what she has already figured out.
