During the past two years, the pandemic has fertilized anxiety, uncertainty, and doubt. Depression and loneliness have exponentially increased, leaving children and adults, not knowing what to do next. The pandemic aside, these are common experiences of children and adults with ADD and ADHD. The author, Thomas W. Scott, knows this story all too well.
In second grade, Tom’s teacher strapped a piece of masking tape across his mouth sitting him in front of the class, because, in her words, “He won’t stop talking.” During his post high school planning his counselor informed him “You are not college material, and you better learn to run a cash register.” Tom knew if he could learn how to learn his way, things would work out. And they have.
Unlike other books in this genre, these writings will make people laugh, and resuscitate their spirit. The author’s education, training, and clinical experiences, coupled with his candid personal history is a compelling read. Readers can find parts of themselves in all of it. Most importantly the book will inspire readers to understand themselves, and others from different perspectives.
Readers will learn about the newest discoveries in interpersonal neurobiology, and psychology, combined with ancient wisdom, taking them on a fascinating path of self-discovery. It may surprise readers to realize that “getting better,” has more to do with letting go, than holding on. This journey will help them learn how to make now better, so later will be easier.
There will be a book signing and meet and greet with licensed psychotherapist and author, Scott W. Thomas on Thursday, October 20th. Readers can find more details on the book signing event below.

“For many of us living and learning hurts. Nothing is more painful than to see your child, or yourself for that matter struggle with social, emotional, academic, or vocational frustrations. For those of us identified as being ADD or ADHD we find ourselves operating from a perpetual come-from-behind-position.”
The book “When Living and Learning Hurt: Making Now Better, So Later is Easier” is available wherever books are purchased online, including Amazon: https://tinyurl.com/3jahs88m. Learn more about ADHD in children and Thomas W Scott’s book here: https://www.ifamilykc.com/blog/guide/adhd-in-children/
