What to Expect When Parenting Children with ADHD

The book business is tricky. While I thought my title, “What to Expect When You’re Not Expecting ADHD” was clever, it turns out clever doesn’t always give a potential reader a clear picture of what a book offers. So, in the interest of clarity and better sales, I changed the book title to the more direct, “What to Expect When Parenting Children with ADHD.”

You are probably wondering why you should care. Well, since I’m now on the 2nd edition, with a new title, I have a small stack of first-edition books on my hands and have decided to give them away! The one and only difference is the title — nothing else was changed.

That’s right, use the Rafflecopter tool below to win one of five first-edition (read rare), signed copies of “What to Expect.” The more you share, the more chances you have to win. The contest is open to US residents only and will close on Friday, August 21, 2015. Good luck!

I don’t know about you, but I’m a sucker for a sappy chick flick, especially those with the adorable Sandra Bullock. Hope Floats resides on my DVR no matter how many times I’ve watched it. harryAnd, let’s face it, Harry Connick Jr. can create a bright spot no matter how bad your day has been! {swoon}

In reflecting on all the Bullock roles that I’ve loved, and even those I didn’t, I realized every Sandra Bullock movie has a message for parents of kids with neurodevelopmental disorders like ADHD, autism, anxiety, etc. Here’s what Sandy taught me. (I can call her Sandy, because in my head we’re like BFFs.) More
