Summary
  • "On the surface, capable teenage boys may look lazy. But dig a little deeper, writes child psychologist Adam Price in He's Not Lazy, and you'll often find conflicted boys who want to do well in middle and high school but are afraid to fail, and so do not try. This book can help you become an ally with your son, as he discovers greater self-confidence and accepts responsibility for his future"--
  • "Boys may seem impervious to school pressures, but they often fear failure so much that they totally opt out. He's Not Lazy helps parents understand--and constructively handle--the underlying issues affecting their sons. A renowned expert on ADHD explains how to deal with a conflicted boy who really wants to do well, discover hidden obstacles to his success, develop his confidence, and empower him to accept responsibility for his own future"--
