About Linda Budd, Ph.D.

Linda Budd

Now in its third edition and expanded to include teenagers, Living with the Active Alert Child: Groundbreaking Strategies for Parents was written by Linda Budd, a Minnesota psychologist whose focus is high-intensity children.

Ask her about these bright, capable–and exhausting–children and Dr. Budd bubbles with enthusiasm about the kids she's followed for decades. Many of the children she encountered in her early research are now adults and despite how difficult they might have been when young, "they're wonderful adults," she exclaims.

These are the kids who grow up to start companies, who do wonderful things for society, she reassures parents.

Budd herself is the mother of two. An adjunct faculty member at the University of Minnesota, she also maintains a private counseling practice.
