Bonus, he tells us what we can do about it!
His latest book (as of early 2021), 12 Principles for Raising a Child With ADHD, explains why kids with ADHD act the way they do and gives parents a blueprint for guiding their child in developing the skills to be successful in life. It is my top recommendation for parents of ADHD kids.
