"Keeping up with my son is draining me dry. He's all over the map!"

"My daughter and her lack of focus is making school a miserable experience for BOTH of us!"

"I'm so tired of people labeling my child!"

As a parent of a child with ADHD, you may have found yourself uttering statements like this. You love your son or daughter, but the unpredictability of his or her ADHD can be exhausting and frustrating. Then when you complain because you've reached your limit, the guilt ensues and you doubt yourself as a parent. Sound familiar?

Over the past 8 years, there has been a 42% increase in diagnoses of ADHD in American children. That means that there are more parents struggling to cope with the daily stress of raising a child with this unique mental disorder. Without some relevant and significant intervention, both parent and child may remain in a cycle of confusion and frustration.
