About this website


Hi Friend!  

Welcome to my little corner of the www.  I’m Kelly Schmidt, a Ph.D. developmental psychologist with experience in early childhood special education and “on-the-job” experience as a mom to a son – Ninja Boy – who has ADHD and other neurodevelopmental disorders.   I have a younger son – Agent J – and an amazing husband and an adorable, anxiously attached rescue cocker spaniel.  

(a mom’s view of ADHD) is a place where I share stories, information, and resources about parenting a child with ADHD.  I have some wonderful friends and colleagues who share as well!  There is also great content from previous website owners Penny Williams (the original ADHD Momma) and Adrienne Ehlert Bashista.

Pour yourself your favorite beverage (hot Irish breakfast tea for me please!) and take some time to look around.   You are not alone, Mama.  You’ve got a village around you, Dad.  Whether you have a newly diagnosed child or are further down the parenting road with your kiddo – this is our place to learn and laugh and cry and say, “You too?  I thought  was the only one who felt that way!”.

Wishing you joy on the journey –
