This book is for fathers who want to do a better job raising their children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, for mothers of ADHD children who want to understand the special needs that fathers have in parenting these children, and for professionals who have the challenging task of involving the fathers of ADHD children in their treatment.
This is the book for fathers who have traditionally stayed outside the treatment loop; it is also the book for mothers who have tried to get their husbands more involved; and it is the book for professionals who too often neglect the critical role the father plays in the ADHD family. -- Robert L. Weber, Ph.D., Cambridge (MA) Hospital Dr. Jacobs has drawn on his own experience as well as the knowledge in the field to create a moving, useful, unique book that should be helpful to any parent and all clinicians. A comprehensive resource and a welcome addition to the literature. -- Edward Hallowell, MD, author of Driven to Distraction and many other books; Founder of The Hallowell Centers; host of the weekly podcast Distraction Compassionate and filled with helpful real-life examples, Dr. Jacobs' book is a superb reference for parents and professionals. -- Pamela L. Enders, Ph.D., Harvard Medical School
