Imagine what it’s like to live inside the head of your distracted son or daughter. Penny Williams has done that and more, giving us this sometimes scary, often funny, and always empathetic look at navigating life with ADHD. Brava!

It is a thrill to read such a caring, thorough, and insightful roadmap to parenting ADHD kids. Penny’s willingness to reveal her weaknesses and missteps, coupled with a flowing (almost spoken) writing style, makes the guide accessible to heart and mind. I will be recommending that everyone buy two of these books in my practice, one for home and one for school.

Since ADHD impacts everything from organization to daily routines, it often undermines the best intentioned plans made to manage it in the first place. The Insider’s Guide to ADHD offers pearls of empathetic, practical wisdom from adults who grew up with ADHD, to get ahead of the game from the start.
