Riley and Learning Tourettes
The Rage out of Nowhere
by TM Ritter

Riley’s teacher knows Riley is a bright student, but he learns differently than most other children. She wants to understand him better and help him be successful in school. Riley’s parents do their best to understand and support Riley too. One of the most important ways they do this is with unconditional love and forgiveness. They talk with him about being aware of what his brain is doing, and provide ways for him to live his best life. One day Riley has a hard day at school. He hadn’t slept well the night before, and an unexpected assembly and a difficult math class have made him feel overwhelmed. He is able to manage his feelings at school, but when he gets home and his mom reminds him that cleaning his room and having a shower are on his schedule that day, he goes into a rage. Both Riley and Mom feel out of control. Neither wants this to happen and they do their best to navigate the big emotions, but it is still an awful time for both of them. Learn with Riley, his mom, and his teacher about what it is like to live with Tourette syndrome. The more we learn, the better we can understand and realize that at the end of the day, love, forgiveness, and acceptance are what’s most important.

Terri Ritter has a bachelor’s degree in psychology. She has always enjoyed writing, knowing she would one day write a book. She lives in Edmonton, Alberta, with her husband, son, daughter, dog, and cat. This book is based on and inspired by Terri’s family.
