Welcome to One Small Step for Parents! Our goal is to help you find the right resources, support and information that is needed to make informed choices. Without the proper tools we, as parents and adults, don't know what will help our situation or what works and doesn't work. Here at One Small Step, we have done our best to take the guesswork and confusion out of the equation by supplying tools, resources and online support.


When you or your child have been diagnosed with ADHD, ODD, Anxiety Disorder or another disability, it can be an overwhelming experience. Many parents and adults feel isolated and confused. What now? Where do you turn for answers or guidance? Who will possibly understand your situation?
We do!
One Small Step is here to offer a helping hand and compassionate ear! We know what it's like to face these challenges on our own, surrounded by a society who views these disabilities as simply bad parenting or poor self control. You don't have to feel alone, excluded or set apart anymore. Share your questions, solutions or simply your trials and triumphs and add your voice to our growing online community!

  1. Why does this website have to be sexist? Why can't it be for parents.

  2. The website isn't sexist - as I am a Mom raising an ADHD/ODD child, I named the blog One Small Step for Moms. If you have a child with ADHD or have ADHD yourself, by all means, join! This site is for support, ideas and solutions. If we have Dads who would like to join, I'm sure we can find a suitable title to change it to.
    Thanks for your comment.

  3. hi Enelle ..i knew that i wasnt the only parent with an ADHD/ODD child..it nevertheless makes me feel very alone..my son attends an EBD school ..not that it has made any difference ..in fact its made my situation at home even worse ..the head teacher states that it is the home enviroment that has led to him being behind in his peer group ..it seems they like to play the blame game....not the fact that he is unable to retain anything substantial due to their teaching methodsi dont know where to go from here ...its like im banging my head on a brick wall or talking to it... Help !!!!!!

  4. It might be a good idea to purchase an ADHD book (written by a psychologist/psychiatrist) and have the teachers and staff READ it! I would recommend Russell Barkley's "Taking Charge of ADHD - The Complete Authoritative Guide for Parents"
    This will help them realize that you know what you are talking about.
