I remember when my son, Andy, was first diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder. He was crushed, and I struggled for a way to explain it to him that made sense and didn’t make him feel bad about himself.

Children’s author and psychotherapist Kara T. Tamanini has written a wonderful new book called “Understanding My Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder” that helps parents explain ADHD to their children.

Understanding My ADHD

In it, she tells a story about a little boy named Tommy, who has ADHD. He is feeling pretty bad about himself until he meets the owner of the Toy Store, Mr. Timmons. Mr. Timmons tells Tommy a story about another little boy very much like him who was always getting into trouble, too.

This book helps children understand ADHD symptoms and learn more about themselves. Here’s a quote from the press release:

Tamanini takes a sensitive and often painful subject, for both children and adults, and
weaves it into a valuable learning tool. Her book is a must-have for parents and children
who are experiencing the mysteries of ADHD.

This book got excellent reviews from customers on Amazon. Here’s what Dr. Abraham had to say:

As a clinical psychologist who works with ADHD clients, I have found this book an excellent primer for parents and their kids, especially those who have been newly diagnosed with this condition. The book skillfully brings awareness of the many traits of ADHD all the while painting a picture of hope that this is a highly treatable condition. I highly recommend this book to my clients and to anyone who might be facing this specific challenge.

Here is a list of places where you can buy Kara’s book:

  1. Very good written post. It will be valuable to anybody who utilizes it, as well as myself. Keep up the good work – i will definitely read more posts.

  2. I’m interested in swapping links, as we have similar websites, who should I contact?

  3. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything. However think about if you added some great graphics or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest in its niche. Good blog!

  4. I really like your writing style, fantastic information, thankyou for putting up : D.
