THE KISS QUOTIENT by Helen Hoang
The Kiss Quotient - Helen Hoang
  Stella hires Michael as an escort so her mother will get off her back about being single. She also decides to have him teach/practice social skills/sex with her so she will be able to get a husband. Michael does not do doubles but decides to help her because he is attracted to her. He does not feel he is good enough for her as they get deeper into their relationship because of his family and past. She's not interested in anyone else after Michael.

This was fun! Both Stella and Michael are lovable. They are perfect for each other. As Stella stumbles along in relating to others Michael accepts her as she is. I like the squabbles between Michael and his sisters. I like that Stella is able to stand up for herself. The story was believable. I hated for it to end. It is a keeper.

All Cats have Asperger Syndrome, Kathy Hoopmann
All Cats Have Asperger Syndrome - Kathy Hoopmann

Here's a delightful book explaining the traits of Asperger's Syndrome, with short, simple text over illustrative and cute pics of kittens and cats. It's obviously aimed at children but it wouldn't be a bad first place to start learning as an adult and it only takes a few minutes to read cover to cover. The idea probably came from the quote "Cats are autistic dogs," which is quite apt...

 

Quibbles:
1. The convention is "Asperger's Syndrome," not "Asperger Syndrome."
2. A small number of the traits mentioned do not apply to all but the phrasing suggests they do.
3. The gendered language, "His..." throughout is frustrating because Aspergirls exist and this could give the impression that they don't. It's avoidable just by rephrasing to refer to plural Aspies.

The Link between Dishonesty and ADHD in Teens

 

Dishonesty and ADHD can be a common pair. Sometimes, teens with ADHD may be truly unsure of what the truth is and what’s not.  Lying can be connected to executive functioning issues. Lying can serve as a coping mechanism for kids with ADHD. For example, you ask your child if they cleaned their room and they lie and say “yes”. Simple tasks can be complex or overwhelming for children with ADHD. So, rather than asking for guidance, they will lie and say they completed the task. This can often feel like the easiest solution to their challenges.  The role of executive functioning issues is quite significant in these situations. Kids may struggle with the following:

 

  • Connecting the now to the future
  • Thinking of, or remembering, consequences
  • Organization and time management
  • Understanding how they got to the place of lying, to begin with
  • Understanding that it’s the lying that got them in trouble (not what they lied about)
  • Knowing how to fix the original problem behind the lie

 

It is important that you don’t dismiss your child as defiant and inherently dishonest, when that simply may not be the case. This type of lying isn’t about defiance. It’s about having trouble coping with challenges.

 

How to Help Decrease the Dishonesty

 

Your job as a parent is not to burden your child with blame. This can create a constant power struggle and let on many more problems. There are some measures you can enforce at home to help get your child on a track being open and honest.

 

Here are some constructive ways to help your child stop lying.

 

  • Anticipate where he might struggle and give help. If your child struggles with orderly tasks like setting the table, break it down. Give them a list of clear steps. Look for patterns in when they lie to figure out where there may be trouble spots.
  • Don’t take lying personally. Try to remember that the dishonesty isn’t out of defiance or disrespect. Focus on what led to the lie rather than the lie itself.
  • Avoid situations where lying is an option. If you asked your child to clean their room before watching tv, don’t ask if they did it. Go check. And if they didn’t, turn off the tv until the task is complete.
  • Tie everything together. Help your child make connections. Talk about what happened and help them recognize what went wrong. Help them brainstorm ways to handle things differently next time.

Kentsakas juhtum koeraga öisel ajal (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) by Mark Haddon
Kentsakas juhtum koeraga öisel ajal - Mark Haddon

I'd been searching for this book for years. Finally, some months ago I found a copy in used books bookshop. I rated it 5 stars and not because "it was amazing" but because it was really realistic. Mark Haddon has done a great job showing us how a kid with Asperger's syndrome thinks and how this person sees the world. He also describes how alone the parents can feel when they try to raise a child with Asperger all alone. These families need a lot of support.
