Do you want finally to learn how to behave with children with ADHD? 
Moms and dads, this book is for you!
How many times have you asked yourself: "Doesn't it happen to all children?"

Being unprepared will only make the situation worse, with inevitable frustration and unnecessary guilt; that's why becoming aware of it must be the first real goal of parents.
