What I Found on the Internet - Just Released Parenting Book by Local Doctor!

Wow! A local child psychiatrist, Dr. Barbara Maddigan, has written a book to aid parents in establishing a healthy and rewarding relationships with their children. It is the title that caught my eye: Inspired Parenting. That has such a nice ring to it, don't you think? 

A friend met Dr. Maddigan once, and says she seemed to be a very competent and knowledgeable, down-to-earth doctor. And, I  have to admit, after poking around the site:, I really can't wait to pick up a copy of the book! In it, she covers such topics as:
  • Communication 
  • Technology
  • Inability to Succeed
  • Schooling
  • ADHD
  • Anxiety and Depression
As many of you know, Mario has had some struggles in the ADD/anxiety spectrum. Based on my impression of Dr. Maddigan, I anticipate the book will have some clear-cut, practical information and coping strategies for these concerns and I look forward to availing of her insight as we go through this journey with Mario. 

The book was released February 1st, and is available at local retailers and online ( There is a launch party later this week (February 19th) at The Rooms - see the calendar for details. 

In the meantime, if you happen to read the book before I post my review of it (and I promise I will include it in an upcoming "What We're Reading Lately" post).... please leave a note with your impressions in the comment section. :-)

Cheers, all!
