Parenting children with ADHD, whether diagnosed or undiagnosed, can be challenging and complex. But just as a child who struggles with reading can learn to decode words, children with ADHD can learn patience, communication and solution-seeking skills to become more confident, independent and capable. This book, rich with optimism, tips, tools and action plans, offers science-based insights and systems for parents to help cultivate these skills.
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 recognise 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.

“Parenting is hard enough—parenting a child with ADHD can be downright overwhelming. Cindy Goldrich has managed the Herculean task of distilling her decades of training and experience as a certified ADHD coach into one concise, easy-to-read ‘crash course’ for parents of a child with ADHD. Better than any other book I’ve read, it helps parents ‘see the world through the eyes of their child with ADHD.’ With warmth and wisdom, Goldrich teaches parents to deal with the myriad frustrations and challenges, create a loving, supportive relationship with their child, and get back to the rewarding aspects of parenting.
