Reviews

"An invaluable resource for parents (and hopefully for those working with them), this book is certainly now on the top of my "must read" list for all the parents (and teachers and mental health specialists) I work with. I am recommending it every chance I get."--Jerome Schultz, Ph.D. Clinical Neuropsychologist, Harvard Medical School Author: Nowhere to Hide
"Elaine Taylor-Klaus is the parent coach you can trust. Writing from her own life experience as a parent of three complex kids, the work of ImpactADHD.com, and the stories of the parents she has coached, Elaine clearly has the lived-through wisdom and compassion. This book is smart, engaging, and written for busy (and sometimes chaotic) families. It teaches parents to use reflection and self-care to connect with the radical acceptance and the "bring it on" attitude needed to take on the parenting challenges. At it's heart, this is also a call to understand both the children and the parents, grow connection within family, and ultimately celebrate the journey."--Lidia Zylowska MD, Associate Professor, University of Minnesota Dept of Psychiatry
