Library Journal Review

It's tough enough to live with attention deficit disorder (ADD), but adding motherhood to the mix can be overwhelming. Adamec (How To Live with a Mentally Ill Person, LJ 7/96) offers sound advice on how a mother with ADD can deal with the everyday tasks of running a home, working with teachers, juggling work, and solving family problems. Regarding school issues, the author shares tips on preparing for a conference, helping that includes homework, and considering such alternatives as charter schools. Helpful diets, prescribed medications, and support groups are also covered.Above all, for ADD moms plagued with guilt and self-blame, Adamec gives positive, it's-gonna-work-out advice. A highly helpful, practical guide for all public libraries that indludes web sites, organizations, camps, and school info.DLinda Beck, Indian Valley P.L., Telford, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
