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 recognize 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.

More than 80 co-authors and ADHD experts such as Cindy Goldrich have come together to share their best tips and strategies to succeed with ADHD. The book features strategies and tips for parents of children with ADHD who want to help them succeed; teenagers and college students with ADHD who are tasked with not only succeeding academically, but also transitioning successfully into the college experience; and adults with ADHD who wish to become more organized, productive, and successful in their personal and professional lives. Cindy’s contribution to the book centers on parenting strategies that will create what is referred to as “sustainable motivation,” by reinforcing behaviors and emotions that are the cornerstones of successful learning for children with ADHD. In addition, she offers practical advice that can be implemented immediately by parents that will create the right environment in which learning and performance can improve. For example, creative ways to engage children in a learning process that will improve skills such as memorizing facts and definitions are shared. When Cindy was invited to contribute to the book, there was a natural fit between the book’s theme and her own coaching philosophy, which centers on a collaborative process and practical, hands-on strategies that can really make a difference on a daily basis. According to Cindy, “This hands-on guide shows us how powerful it can be when the health and education fields come together and leverage their collective experiences and knowledge to help an important cause.
