The Trouble With Peer Pressure - A Simple “My ADHD Story” for Young Teens by Darlene R. Wood

About the Book
If you have ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), you already know that sometimes, everyday life seems like it’s too much to handle. And probably you’ve already experienced the fact that when you’re already overwhelmed, peer pressure seems to compound any situation. The Trouble With Peer Pressure is a friendly, practical guide to help you navigate the challenges of peer pressure.
Author Darlene R. Wood provides information you can use, including ways to think about the consequences of your actions, and strategies to feel less isolated by the label of ADHD. You may feel that figuring out how to deal with peer pressure is hard—but guess what? It doesn’t have to be. Like any other issue, it just requires that everyone step back, evaluate, and design a thoughtful and respectful solution. The Trouble With Peer Pressure is a valuable resource for you and your family that will make life easier for you, both in school and at home.

My Review:
This was a really nice book about what a child with ADHD thinks about themselves as they are labeled and face being different. I love that the author talked about how medication can make a child feel as well. every doctor should read this book before they label a child. I am giving this book a 4/5. I was given a copy to review, however all opinions are my own.
