"The diagnosis of ADHD can be seen as a blessing or a curse. The choice is yours."
ADHD: Not Just Naughty is an uplifting guide for parents and caregivers of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) as they navigate the rocky road of challenging behaviours. These include hyperactivity, impulsivity, inattention and often defiance.
This book recounts one mother's experiences, errors and successes in raising a son diagnosed with ADHD. If you find yourself often running on empty, unsure at times of which way to turn, and looking to restore your confidence, then this book is for you.
Practical parenting strategies are intertwined with real-life situations--the good, the bad and the ugly, with a dash of humour thrown in! Issues such as self-esteem, social skills, self-awareness, discipline and controlling anger are explored with a strong focus on the emotional well-being of both you and your child.
This book comes with a heartfelt message of hope, and that ADHD children are not just naughty. They are loving, intelligent, creative and unique little people with more potential than we realise. A diagnosis of ADHD can be a new beginning to a better relationship.
Elsie Bourke is a mother of three. Her eldest son CJ was diagnosed with ADHD at age seven after many problematic years. After that diagnosis, she made it her mission to learn all she could about ADHD in order to help her son. She joined, then co-ran, a support group for parents of ADHD children, and was on call for those in need of support and a friendly ear. Always having had a love of writing, she kept helpful reminder notes during this time, and these became the basis for this book - now written to help others on their own ADHD parenting journey. Now also a proud nanna, Elsie lives on the Mornington Peninsula with her family.
