Carolyn Angelin wants a quiet life - a husband, couple of kids, a house in the 'burbs, and a dog. Is that too much to ask? When Carolyn finds herself pregnant, she and her husband, Martin, are excited at the prospect of a playmate for their first son, James. But they get more than they bargain for with not one, not two, but three baby boys - triplets! The triplets prove to be dynamos from day one. Their unruly behaviour gains momentum as they grow, and each day poses new challenges for Carolyn and Martin as they attempt to raise four boys under the age of two years old. Suspecting something is not quite right after the triplets are expelled from playgroup, Carolyn searches for answers. Is there something wrong with the boys, or is she just a bad mother? Carolyn's journey takes her to the depths of despair and, ultimately, a major meltdown. She emerges to the discovery that her triplets suffer from ADHD. ADHD to the Power of Three is a compelling and poignant tale of a mother's triumph over adversity as her children's condition threatens to derail her family. It is also a story of hope for anyone who's ever felt that 'life is just too hard.'

Great book - for parents of multiples or children with ADHD and Learning Difficulties. Really highlights the author's battle with education authorities and teachers to recognise the problems these children face.

I enjoyed this book, but I would have like to have heard more about how she felt when she was told about the diagnosis and some more specifics about what they boys were like and how she coped. But then again, she is still raising 4 boys. How she got the time to write this book amazes me!
