I had never heard the term ADHD, but I knew there was a problem, and I had to find out what it was!
Walking through Land Mines shares author Gale Feingold's personal experiences in raising a child with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Parents will find comfort and gain insight into the 'explosions" of life, preparing them for what lies ahead.
Feingold's son, Michael, is twenty-five and has ADHD. As an educator for nineteen years, Gale witnessed firsthand what happens when parents ignore the problem or remain unaware of available resources. In this open diary, she touchingly relates some of her most personal moments:
- Academic heartaches
- Raising an ADHD child
- Parenting dilemmas
- The social side of ADHD
- Living with an adult child with ADHD
Walking through Land Mines will not answer all the questions parents face. But through Feingold's journey, you will have a better understanding of how to overcome the trials of living with an ADHD child.
