What I’ve Been Reading
My pal and colleague, Elaine Taylor-Klaus, just published a fabulous book, The Essential Guide to Raising Complex Kids with ADHD, Anxiety, and More: What Parents and Teachers Really Need to Know to Empower Complicated Kids with Confidence and Calm
I just dug into this gem and am super excited to have this resource I can recommend to those who live with, love, or work with kids who have ADHD, or pretty much any other special challenges. She takes a coaching perspective and a pragmatic approach with specific scenarios that I’m sure will help you help your child (and you!).

Are You Eating Like CRaP, Too? Pandemic Anxiety and Eating
I cannot believe that at this very moment, in my kitchen, are the following items I normally do NOT buy: Ho Ho’s, Hershey’s Chocolate Kisses, Milano Double Chocolate (dark) Cookies. I lied- I do buy Milanos, normally. But just ONE bag at a time, not two-three!
This pandemic has caused us to find comfort in our homes and self-soothing activities to keep us calm and sane. For me, that’s chocolate. Now, I can’t beat myself up over this and neither should you.
I realize that this is a temporary glitch in my eating routine, so take my advice and be kind to yourself when you find your sticky fingers swooping into that bag of
M & Ms or whatever your (hopefully fairly benign) go-to for comfort is.
In the meantime, maybe this article I wrote pre-pandemic will help:
