boy without instructions-new book by Penny Williams (adhdmomma)

I just wanted to congratulate Penny Williams on her brand new book

“boy without instructions-Surviving the Learning Curve of Parenting a Child with ADHD”

Here is a link to buy the book

Awesome Job Penny!



Well done Penny!  I love the title!  Keep us in the loop for pre-orders, etc.

I’m on son number two with ADHD.  At times wondering how I will survive the learning curve this time. Your book is well-timed and I can’t wait to read it.

I will definitely order this!  Thanks for the post!

BTW, it’s already out, so not sure why this post mentioned June 1.

On her website it said it wasn’t available until June 1st.  I made the adjustment smile

I just ordered mine!  Ive been struggling with how to accept my son’s ADHD and move past the grieving that he has it.  It sounds like this is what I need to read.

Thanks Mitzi! I’m flattered that you posted this!

To clarify, yes, it’s on AMAZON. It’s there because I uploaded to order review copies for a final proofing. Amazon automatically makes it available. I’m not officially releasing it until June 1, but it is possible to purchase it now. However, I can’t guarantee you’ll receive a “perfect” copy until June 1. grin

It will also be available as e-Book June 1.

So happy to see you guys interested! wink

Hi Penny,

Thanks for clarifying! That makes sense.

I just wanted people to realize, who have seen you here with all your knowledge and experience as a parent of a child with ADHD, that you had put that to paper smile

I wish you MUCH success with your first book!

Thanks for the clarification Penny and congrats smile I think it’s awesome that you wrote this book and I’m sure many if us will benefit from it smile

Would this book be appropriate for a mom whose son who is both gifted and adhd? Sometimes the challenges are a bit different, but the book sounds great.

Hi Dreamwise,

Absolutely! I am the author of the book and my son is gifted (twice exceptional) as well. The challenges are sometimes different, but I find advocating for a twice exceptional child is doubly hard.
