1 Review
Fathers and mothers do not experience or handle parenting the same way. In the case of the ADHD child, for whom consistency is so important, differences in the way parents regard behavior, discipline, and ADHD itself often get in the way of their working effectively as a team. Clinical psychologist Edward H. Jacobs recognizes the needs and perspectives particular to fathers and he suggests how differences can be harnessed to strengthen and enrich the parenting team to benefit the ADHD child.

This is an excellent book. Moms, even if your husband never reads a word of it, please read it yourself! It explains the process behind many of the difficulties which lead to school problems and family conflicts. Been there! Jacobs offers thoughtful insights and gives practical solutions. There is a helpful chapter on the unique challenges of the intelligent child who has ADD. I wish I had read this years earlier!
