    There are lots of books about ADHD by people with letters behind their names. They can tell you a lot about clinical trials and symptoms and methods. Sometimes they also tell you about all the negative things that you really didn't want to know.This is an entirely different book. This is from a mom's point of view about what it's like to mother and parent a child with ADHD. If you are just starting down this path, it might be a good heads up about what to prepare for and watch out for. If you ha [...]


  • Terry Matlen

    You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll shake your head in disbelief at the struggles the author has faced every single day caring for her special boy. Your heart will ache as you join her at school meetings. You'll hold your breath as you pray for a calm day in the Williams' household. You will be simply amazed at the tenaciousness of a mom searching everywhere to find help for her son. This is a story of a mother’s deep love for her (very challenging) son who came into the world without instruction [...]


  • Leslie Lindsay

    Wow. If you are looking for a frankly honest account of one momma's struggle of raising a child with AD/HD, this is the book for you. In fact, I highly recommed it for just about anyone who deals with AD/HD from pediatricians to therapists--you'll get a first-hand account of what us parents--mothers especially--go through on a day to day basis. Night, too. Because you know, there are times we just can't sleep for thinking about our precious punkins with a special need. And yes, AD/HD definitely [...]


  • Mary Pat

    Another must-read for any person who knows someone with ADHD, personally and/or professionally. A first person account, it is easy to read and gives excellent insight into the parental and family struggle.


  • Karen

    This was a fantastic book that showed the ups and downs that come with parenting a child with ADHD. It was funny and heartbreaking all at the same time. It showed me that there are other people and parents struggling with similar issues that I am now struggling with.


  • Erik Zweigle

    This review is critical both because the author literally asked for it at the end of her book and because books covering such intimate topics as developmental disorders in our children should be closely scrutinized. So, I will start and end on a positive note. The courage required to voluntarily bare all for the world to judge our personal life is almost superhuman. While memoirs are a specific genre of literature they are generally withheld till the end of one’s life for a reason. William’s [...]


  • Joy

    An accurate portrayal of life with a child with ADHDGreat read. Not really a "self help" book, more like a collection of stories of what it's like to live day in and day out with a child with ADHD. The stories seemed so familiar, b/c they parallel my life. It made me feel not so alone.


  • Christina Dougherty

    I have to say I started strong on this book; then lost interest.The tone gets winey to say the least.


  • Kay Marner

    Penny Williams is a household name to many parents of kids with ADHD, so it’s only fitting that Williams’ first book, Boy Without Instructions: Surviving the Learning Curve of Parenting a Child with ADHD, is well on its way to becoming a staple in every well-stocked ADHD home library. Williams, aka “the ADHD momma,” earned a name in the online ADHD community as founder of the blog a mom’s view of adhd everyday life with our adhd kids, where she is beloved by thousands for her knowled [...]


  • Katie

    I'm so torn with this book. I picked it after I received my son's probable ADHD diagnosis to get a real parent's version of it, not just a "here's what you should and shouldn't do". Now I'm glad/angry I did. My emotions really fell into this book. When R's 4th grade teacher refused to follow the IEP, it pissed me off that the only solution was to switch R to another teacher. I'm so glad it worked out, but WHY WASN'T THE TEACHER HELD TO THE LAW?! Why was she just able to say she wouldn't implemen [...]


  • Shanna Vilbig

    I just finished your book. I too am a mother of an ADHD son (8 years old). I am amazed, sad, relieved and at a loss of other words to truly express how I feel about your brilliant book. As I read each page I felt that you must have secretly been videoing my life for the past several years - right down to the smallest of details. Of course as a parent of an ADHD child you know you are not “alone,” however, you frequently feel “alone.” As I read your words they connected with me on such a [...]


  • Brenda Nicholson

    Penny Williams shares a very honest and personal account of the struggles her family went through in raising her son, Ricochet, who has ADHD. Boy Without Instructions gives the reader a very real glimpse into the challenges and joys of raising a special needs child. Easy to read - I read it in one sitting - and well written. If you are a parent of a special needs child, you should read this book. You may even come away with a few new tools to add to your skill set.


  • Pat

    A candid look at the life of parent of a child with ADHD. The battles you have to fight to get services from school. The battles with insurance companies to get help for your child. The battles you face with you child. It is exhausting. I am the grandparent of 2 ADHD children and our battles are just beginning.


  • Brenda Lochinger

    As a parent of not one but two ADHD kids I was thrilled to receive this book! Penny did a brilliant job describing the fears, learning curve, and emotional roller coaster not only parents go through but the child as well. Would recommend this book whole heartedly. It's a true understanding first hand on raising a child with ADHD.


  • Traci

    Excellent book! if you are are a mom or know any moms dealing with children who have ADHD. They must read this book!! If you ever feel you are alone in this ADHD battle you have found a friend in Penny Marshall!!


  • Krista

    This book is an easy read that is hard to put down. Real life experiences told from the parent of a child with ADHD. You will laugh, cry and know that you are not alone in the struggles that ADHD has on the entire family. This is a must read for anyone that knows and loves a child with ADHD.


  • Allison Sharma

    I expected to like this book more, but it lacked the emotion I was hoping for. It's clear that the author isn't a writer by profession - she talked about the emotional and difficult aspects of parenting an ADHD child, but her language was very matter-of-fact.


  • Jessica Richards

    Most helpful book I have read so far on the topic of parenting a child with ADHD. Her little boy is so much like my Nathan, it was very relatable and an encouraging read. I would recommend to any parents of children with ADHD, and I am excited to read her next book!


  • Penny Staudenmaier

    An amazing and honest look into the difficulties,struggles, and love that goes along with parenting a child with ADHD. A must read for anyone who is struggling and feeling like no matter how hard they try to explain it to the outside world, people just really don't get it.


  • Emily Landon

    Interesting but dramaticI am super type a but reading this book made me feel laid back in comparison. Lots of drama for the momma. Might be helpful if you feel like that too.


  • Linda Quirk

    Wonderful insight into raising a child with severe ADHD. Lots of helpful ideas. Love this author. Can't wait for the next one!


  • Gretchen

    Loved it! A must read for anyone who has or knows a child with ADHD.
