Puberty is one of the first signs that your daughter is growing up―and that’s something to be celebrated.
The problem is that for most girls, going through puberty sucks. There are periods, cramps, acne, mood swings, body odor, and the list goes on.

Did you know that Emma Watson was diagnosed with inattentive ADHD while she was filming for Harry Potter?
Idolized as Hermione by children and respected by teens for her activism and advocacy, Emma Watson is an inspiration to girls of all ages… and everything she’s achieved, she’s managed alongside her ADHD.
She’s the perfect role model for girls with ADHD -- a group who often find themselves marginalized and misunderstood. And if you’re a parent to one of these girls, the chances are, you face many struggles you never expected to face as a parent.
How many times have you looked for help, only to find that resources are targeting externalized symptoms like hyperactivity and acting out?
But your daughter’s ADHD manifests differently. Her symptoms are more internalized. Perhaps she’s anxious and withdrawn, she has trouble focusing, or she appears not to be listening.
All too often, these girls are overlooked.
So how can you help them fit into a world that seems to not be designed for them?
The answer starts with yourself: through arming yourself with knowledge about ADHD in girls, you can help your daughter navigate the world and let her brightest qualities shine.
Because all those quirks her ADHD gives her can be advantages if she’s guided and taught to harness their power.
It’s not about forcing her to fit into a neurotypical mold: it’s about teaching her how to use her strengths and skills to find her own place within the world.
By strengthening your own understanding of how ADHD affects your daughter through each stage of development, you can fortify her with the skills she needs to be a brilliant and inspirational young woman.
In My Strength Is Her Strength, you’ll find a complete guide to parenting girls with ADHD and building your own strength in order to feed hers. You’ll discover:

By learning how to build a strong, positive approach to parenting, you can nurture your daughter and watch her flourish every step of the way.
ADHD isn’t a disability. It’s simply a different operating system… and together, you and your daughter can learn to harness its power.
Smartphones have transformed the world with their convenience and capabilities. A single small device can replace a landline, camera, CD player, and road map—but all of this miraculous technology comes with a cost.
The dark side of smartphones is not always so obvious. Checking your phone constantly from dawn until dusk has become normalized, and most people don’t realize they’re trapped in a very real addiction.

Despite how common this addiction is, it is possible to overcome. The Smartphone Addiction Restriction is a guide for those who see the danger of the situation. We may not be able to quit using smartphones entirely, but with this tested and proven plan, we can limit their activity to the most essential uses.
In The Smartphone Addiction Restriction, you’ll learn:

Every parent goes through this. Toddlers are at a stage where they are developing their independence and pushing boundaries, and they have more feelings than they can understand or express.

A book your professor doesn't want you to read.
Why? Because a liberal institution, Orama University, makes the mistake of letting Leonard Whittle, a conservative capitalist, into a series of courses on globalism. The courses literally envelop the globe, from socialism and to environmentalism, the United Nations and to the European Union, the business-government cabal to Saul Alinsky and Herbert Marcuse, the New left of the 1960s to the New Left of today, the marginalization of America to the China-Russia anti-West vision of globalism...and, of course, globalism – that is the Western version of it – itself. Poor Leonard is pitted against faculty and students alike as he tramples on the progressive views of ivory-tower professors and ignites debates on many modern collegiate issues, like micro- aggressions, identity politics, multiple sex categories, George Soros' control of just about everything and much more. The comparison of socialism here and in Venezuela is stark as is the collision course between preserving the environment and socialist goals. If the reader doesn't agree with Leonard's view...all of which are backed by fact...at least he or she will have much food for thought.
