"A complete and practical guide to building a successful relationship with a partner who has attention-deficit disorder (ADD), Loving Someone with Attention Deficit Disorder offers strategies for communicating effectively, setting boundaries, and moving past obstacles together"--Provided by publisher.
"It isn't easy to be a loving partner to someone who is routinely distracted, has trouble restraining their impulses, and finds it difficult to communicate with others. But for those who have partners living with attention deficit disorder, or ADD, these issues are everyday struggles. Often, ADD symptoms manifest in ways that are destructive to healthy relationships. In Loving Someone with Attention Deficit Disorder, marriage and family therapist Susan Tschudi (whose husband has ADD) presents practical guidance readers can use to set healthy boundaries, clarify their expectations, and ensure their partners fulfill their responsibilities. The book focuses on helping the reader meet his or her own needs in the relationship, not just on addressing the needs of their partners. It offers thorough and practical advice for moving through obstacles as a couple, accepting that ADD will always be a part of the relationship, and defusing anger and frustration that may arise"--Provided by publisher.

This is one of the best explanations of this condition I have ever read. It is in regular people's language levels so can be understood by many. I would reccommend this book and will buy it to help my family.
