I have become familiar with the main authorities/authors in the area of adult ADD after I was diagnosed a couple of years ago. But who and what are the best resources for parenting an ADD child? My son is 13 and was diagnosed at age 10 (that's how I discovered I have it too). I am interested in finding some resources that help to teach life skills for his future as an adult and not just tips for getting him through school or etc. I want to know how to best prepare him for LIFE?
I don't want him to go through the pain that I have as an adult OR the negative effects on his future marriage and wife. I know it will already be different and hopefully better for him because he is aware of it now, thank goodness. But I also want to focus on whatever strategies, skills and mindset he most needs to learn now for the best chance of success in adulthood.
Also, is there such a thing as a book specifically written for an ADD parent who is trying to raise an ADD child? I feel like I am the blind leading the blind sometimes! I can certainly sympathize with him, but often I have no idea how to HELP him! But that is what I want more than anything--to help him.
