ADHD Answers from an ADHD Teen Brings Help to Parents, ADHD Boys

Press release from: That's My Son!

Sept. 4, 2006--Parents of boys with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD) have a new place to find answers to questions, problem-solving suggestions, and general help and support, both for their sons and for themselves. But the help comes from a source some will find surprising. "Talk Back with Jack" offers a forum for 11-year-old Jack Dixon to offer help and advice to ADHD boys and their parents as part of That's My Son! (http://www.raising-the-adhd-boy.com), a web site devoted to parents of ADHD boys.

That's My Son! is run by Jack's mother, Angie Dixon, as a place for other parents of ADHD boys to find information and support. The site has recently undergone an overhaul, including the addition of an "interview room" for ADHD boys and their parents.

"I think it was the interviews that gave Jack the idea," Angie Dixon says. "He really wanted to get involved with the site, and he thinks it's very cool that there is a web site devoted to ADHD boys, because there are not very many places like it on the web."

Jack Dixon, now a sixth-grader and very eager to share his experiences and advice about living with ADHD, explains that "I just wanted to give people a chance to talk to a real ADHD boy and ask me questions. I think it will be great."

Jack's mom is equally enthusiastic. "I was looking for ways to make the site more interesting and helpful to the parents who come there looking for information and support. Jack and I think this will be great not only for parents looking for advice, but also for boys who might have a question they'd like Jack to address on his page - maybe things about school and friends. Some kids don't really have anyone to ask these things, and Jack can offer some advice from a perspective of a boy who's been through all the ADHD-related experiences."

If "Talk Back with Jack" is successful, Dixon foresees other interactive features on That's My Son!

"We have moved our blog and updated it, and we have the interviews. We're looking into a mailing list, and a community page where parents and boys can send their photos and stories and we can share each other's experiences more."

Meanwhile, "Talk Back with Jack" is just getting off the ground. To send a question to Jack (via his mom), visit That's My Son! at http://www.raising-the-adhd-boy.com.
