From the Foreword by Rothschild:

“…Goldrich’s overarching mantra is “parent the child you have.”  It is this wisdom that sets her apart as an expert in this field.  She recognizes that ADHD is not comprised of a single set of difficulties and that every child s unique.  She will help you to recognize the unique needs of your particular child and then support and guide you in adapting your parenting style to your child’s needs.”
