The Devil Made Me Do It!

Recently, I read an article by Bob Proctor that shared a fable about the devil having a sale.  The story goes that “Satan was having a sale of his wares.  On display, and offered for sale, were the rapier of jealousy, the dagger of fear, and the strangling noose of hatred, each with its own highLearn More

Why Do I Do It?

It’s interesting to me when someone asks why I work with parents (especially moms) of children with ADHD and/or learning disabilities.  It takes a story to answer that question … a story I would like to share with you.

“But I’m Not Hungry!”

One of the biggest frustrations I had when our ADHD son was on Adderall was his loss of appetite. Are you experiencing that with your child and his or her medications? As it was, he was tall and very slender. I worried that he would lose weight; he didn’t have much to lose on thoseLearn More

Back To School – Part 3 – What About Mom?

I visited the local mall this past weekend and quickly discovered that anyone with a school-aged child (or so it seemed) was there hurrying from store to store to get what was still on the list before school starts next week.  The Back-to-School sales were everywhere.
