Tommy’s Wired and Mommy’s Tired is a book for moms everywhere, and especially for moms with high-energy children. This is not a book on how to change your child, but rather on how to stay encouraged and manage yourself while you navigate the challenging work of motherhood.

Bonus free chapter: My high-energy son, now grown, wrote the last chapter of the book. Moms, click here for a free read of my son’s letter to you, and be encouraged by his look in the rear view mirror!
