Boy Without Instructions

Surviving the Learning Curve of Parenting a Child with ADHD


Grace-Everett Press released Penny Williams’ first book, Boy without Instructions: Surviving the Learning Curve of Parenting a Child with ADHD, on June 1, 2014.

Bookstores are filled with titles on ADHD from professionals and experts, but books from a momma’s perspective are few and far between. Yet, hearing other parents’ experiences raising a child with similar challenges is often therapeutic, reassuring, and even liberating. Williams found some of the most helpful information she gathered when her son was diagnosed with ADHD.
PSfinalistBBlogoWilliams shares the unfiltered emotions during the progression of learning to parent a child with ADHD in the roller coaster ride that is Boy without Instructions. Come along as this unapologetic, initially grief-stricken Momma transforms from obsessed-with-ADHD control-freak and helicopter mom to optimistic and {mostly} confident parent of a child who happens to have ADHD. You will learn so much from this candid compilation of been-there-done-that wisdom. Each word in this book will validate your feelings and prove that you, Warrior Momma, are not alone.h ADHD at the age of six was not from books on ADHD, the disorder, but actually from moms with similar experiences. And so this book was crafted to offer these special moms more of what they need — validation and understanding.

A self-described veteran parent of a son with ADHD, Penny Williams is the creator of the award-winning website, {a mom’s view of ADHD}, and a frequent columnist on parenting a child with ADHD for ADDitude Magazine and other parenting and special needs publications.  As well, Williams has published essays about her experiences in the books Easy to Love but Hard to Raise, Sensational Journeys, and Trust Your Intuition. Her first book, Boy without Instructions, is available now.
